The kicking competition in San Francisco is officially over.
David Akers will continue to be the kicker for the 49ers as the team announced they have waived Billy Cundiff on Friday.
Cundiff was signed nearly three weeks ago amid concerns over Akers consistency over the final few games of the regular season. Akers missed 13 field goals during the regular season and had missed four kicks in the 49ers final three games.
San Francisco has carried both kickers on the roster since then but Cundiff was not active for the 49ers Divisional Round victory over the Green Bay Packers last week. Akers made his only field goal try of the game, a 36-yarder, and converted all six PATs in the 45-31 win over Green Bay.
