Browns waive K Billy Cundiff; sign Garrett Hartley

USA Today - [Full Article]

Billy Cundiff practiced inside FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday, working on his mechanics and hoping to snap out of his recent funk.

He won't play there Sunday.

The Browns waived the slumping kicker Saturday and replaced him with veteran Garrett Hartley, who will likely kick against the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals.

Cundiff's release comes a week after he missed a 40-yarder in a one-point loss to Indianapolis and following two days in which he kicked well in practice before injuring his knee.

Fantasy Impact:

Cundiff missed Friday's practice and coach Mike Pettine said the 34-year-old veteran had injured himself the previous day, the story said. Cundiff refused to discuss his injury, deferring all questions about his status to Pettine. Although Cundiff had a sleeve on his left leg, the Browns said on their injury report he hurt his right knee.

The Browns have agreed to contract terms with K Billy Cundiff, a source told FOX Sports.

Fantasy Impact:

Cundiff is just 75.5-percent for his career, including a terrible 7-for-12 last year in Washington before losing his job. He'll be the Browns kicker in Week 1, replacing Phil Dawson who went to San Francisco.

Jets sign K Dan Carpenter

Jets sign kicker Dan Carpenter and release Billy Cundiff.

Fantasy Impact:

Carpenter is a career 81.9% kicker while Cundiff was just 75.5%. Carpenter is only 10-for-20 in his career from 50-plus yards, though. Either way, it's an upgrade, but the Jets offense is going to have to get him in position first...

Kicker Billy Cundiff is signing with the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact:

David Akers remains with the team, so at this point it's not clear who will kick for the 49ers next week. They may hold a competition and release the loser before the Divisional Round.

The Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Reacting to the struggles of former Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff, the Washington Redskins are signing former UCLA kicker Kai Forbath today, according to a league source.

Forbath tried out for the Redskins today along with Olindo Mare and Josh Brown.

Cundiff is expected to be released today. He was cut by the Baltimore Ravens during the preseason after being beaten out by rookie kicker Justin Tucker.

The Washington Post - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan expressed disappointment Sunday in kicker Billy Cundiff, who missed a 31-yard field goal for a second consecutive week. Shanahan said immediately after Washington’s 24-17 loss to Atlanta that he didn’t know what the Redskins would do about their kicking position. The coach said that he wanted to wait until tomorrow to make a decision.

Cundiff missed a 31-yard field goal that would have given the Redskins a 10-0 second quarter lead. Last week, he missed a 41-yarder, a 57-yarder and 31-yarder against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before making a 41-yard attempt to win the game with three seconds on the clock.

Redskins sign Cundiff, cut Gano

Redskins making another change at kicker: Washington is signing former Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff.

Fantasy Impact:

It is important to keep track of kicker movement, especially in leagues that do not allow waiver transactions between the draft and Week 1. In such leagues, you don't want to get stuck with a kicker that gets cut or injured and have no backup on the roster.
