Billy Cundiff didn’t have to wait long to find work, and he doesn’t have to move far.
After being released by the Ravens this week, Cundiff is signing with the Redskins, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Redskins released Neil Rackers yesterday, apparently electing to go with Graham Gano.
But that didn’t last long, as they viewed Cundiff as an upgrade.
He probably is, but Cundiff could never escape the shadow of his AFC Championship Game miss with the Ravens, losing his job to rookie Justin Tucker.
So Gano now joins Rackers again, but instead of in the Redskins locker room, they’ll be part of the Tuesday workout crew (along with Olindo Mare, Josh Brown and others) whenever teams get tired of their current kickers. They should get a bus, and go from city to city like a traveling kicker circus. As long as they leave Crazy Joe Davola at home.
Update: 9:07 a.m. ET: ESPN 980 talked to Gano, who confirmed he’s been released.
