Redskins will work out kickers Tuesday, according to report

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

According to a report, the Washington Redskins may be looking to replace struggling kicker Billy Cundiff.

The Washington Redskins will be trying out place kickers on Tuesday, according to a report by Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet Washington. The team is potentially looking to replace kicker Billy Cundiff, who has struggled to consistently produce this season, most notably over the last two games.

Despite kicking the game-winning field goal in the closing moments of Week 4's contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cundiff missed three kicks on the day, including attempts from 37, 41 and 57 yards. That same kind of performance carried over to Sunday's meeting with the Atlanta Falcons when Cundiff missed a 31-yard attempt at the end of the second quarter that could have put the team up 10-0. After the miss, the Falcons put together a 79-yard scoring drive that tied the game 7-7 heading into halftime.

Cundiff eventually managed to successfully convert a 23-yard attempt in the third quarter but is 3-for-8 since the season opener and 7-for-12 over the course of the entire season.

Following Sunday's game, head coach Mike Shanahan had yet to decide whether the team planned to make a change, via The Washington Times:

"I'm not sure what we'll do. I never say anything right after a game. We'll let 24 hours go by, collect our thoughts, make decisions you think gives you the best chance to win."
