Redskins sign K Kai Forbath; release Billy Cundiff according to reports

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Redskins signed former UCLA Bruins kicker Kai Forbath on Tuesday. Forbath will replace Billy Cundiff, who was released.

The Washington Redskins signed a new kicker Tuesday, inking a deal with Kai Forbath, a team source told ESPN Radio's Chris Russell. Forbath, a former UCLA Bruin, will replace Billy Cundiff, who has reportedly been released.

On Tuesday, Washington (2-3) tried out Forbath and two other kickers – Olindo Mare and Josh Brown – to find out if there were better options than Cundiff, who has made just seven of his 12 field-goal attempts this season. Its seems Forbath was the most impressive.

Forbath has no professional experience. The former Bruin and Lou Groza Award winner was not selected in 2011 NFL Draft but was an undrafted free agent for the Dallas Cowboys, who placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list. In April, he was waived by Dallas and was quickly claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Forbath will make his regular-season debut this week when the Redskins host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday (4:25 p.m. on FOX).
