Cundiff Cut, Redskins Release Struggling Kicker

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- The Washington Redskins have released struggling kicker Billy Cundiff and replaced him with free agent Kai Forbath.

Forbath emerged as the winner in a tryout at Redskins Park on Tuesday. He won the Lou Groza Award with UCLA in 2009 as the top kicker in college football, but he has yet to play in the NFL.

Cundiff was signed late in preseason after he was waived by the Baltimore Ravens. He has been the worst kicker in the league this year, making only seven of 12 field goal attempts. Two of his misses have been from inside 40 yards, including a 31-yard misfire in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
