Description: Place-kicker Billy Cundiff has been signed by the Cleveland Browns.
Insight: Cundiff was 7-for-12 last season with Washington. He has a career field goal rate of 75.5 percent. He'll certainly have trouble living up to the level of the Browns' kicker from 1999-2012, Phil Dawson, who hit 29-of-31 last season and owned a career 84 percent success rate oon field goals.

Description: San Francisco 49ers' newly acquired place-kicker Billy Cundiff was seen working out at Candelstick Park, according to a San Jose Mercury report. David Akers was not there.
Insight: Cundiff and Akers could both be active on Saturday which would make it tough on fantasy owners. Coach Jim Harbaugh indicated there is a "leader in the clubhouse" but wouldn't elaborate on who that person was. Picking a 49ers kicker for Saturday will be a big gamble unless we get more information.

Description: Former Pro-Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff was signed by the San Francisco 49ers.
Insight: Cundiff will compete with David Akers over the next week to see who will be the place-kicker. Akers was just 29-of-42 this season while dealing with a hip injury. Cundiff was 7-of-12 this season. He was cut by Baltimore, signed by Washington, then cut by the Redskins in favor of Kai Forbath.

Description: Former Pro-Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff, who quickly signed with the Washington Redskins one day after being released by the Baltimore Ravens, appears to be in danger of losing his job again.
Insight: Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Redskins will bring in a number of free agent kickers this week. Cundiff is 7-for-12 this season, but has missed two kicks inside 40 yards. If Cundiff is on your fantasy team start you better start looking at what kickers are available.

Description: Former Pro-Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff didn't stay unemployed for long, signing with the Washington Redskins one day after being released by the Baltimore Ravens.
Insight: Graham Gano's training camp win over Neil Rackers was shortlived. Cundiff was 28-for 37 last season (75.7%) and 132-for-172 (76.7%) for his career, but missed an easy 32-yard attempt that would have sent last season's AFC Championship game into overtime.

Description: The Ravens have parted ways with Pro-Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff.
Insight: Cundiff had a nice run with Baltimore but unfortunately he'll probably be most remembered for shanking an easy 32-yard attempt that would have sent last season's AFC Championship game into overtime. With Cundiff gone, rookie Justin Tucker will now handle the kicking duties for the Ravens.

9/4/2010 11:02:00 PM
Description: Cundiff defeated Shayne Graham in the fight for the Baltimore kicking job.
Insight: That obviously makes Cundiff safer to draft right now than Graham, but he's far from safe overall. Cundiff hasn't appeared in a full season's worth of games since 2004 and was out of the league for all of 2007 and 2008. (RapidDraft.com)
 
4/12/2010 8:09:00 PM
Description: Ravens re-signed restricted free agent K Billy Cundiff to a one-year, $1.101 million contract.
Insight: Cundiff has a tendency to go cold during the season for long stretches, so expect the Ravens to continue to attempt to improve their kicking game. (sportsBuff.com)
