Analysis: The move came hours before the 49ers boarded a flight to Atlanta on Friday. San Francisco signed Cundiff on Jan. 1 to compete with the struggling Akers, a 15-year veteran who made 29 of 42 field-goal attempts in the regular season.

Analysis: Coach Jim Harbaugh said earlier in the week that Akers would be his kicker for Saturday's game but did not rule out the possibility of dressing two kickers. Akers has missed 13 of 42 field goal attempts this season.

Cundiff and the Baltimore Ravens stayed home after he missed a potential tying 32-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the AFC championship game and New England went to the Super Bowl last season instead.
Analysis: These days, Cundiff has no qualms discussing his greatest career disappointment. He hopes to soon make a new impression on the NFL's postseason - succeeding as San Francisco's starting kicker. While coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to name Cundiff or incumbent David Akers the top guy for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against Green Bay, Cundiff is preparing as if he will play.

Analysis: Coach Jim Harbaugh says there's a "good chance" both kickers will be on the roster for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, though he didn't specify whether each would be active. Harbaugh indicated "we have a leader in the clubhouse," but wouldn't say who it is. The 49ers (11-4-1) signed Cundiff on Jan. 1 to compete for a job with the struggling veteran Akers, who has made just 29 of 42 field goals this season.

Analysis: Forbath emerged as the winner in a tryout at Redskins Park. He won the Lou Groza Award with UCLA in 2009 as the top kicker in college football, but he has yet to play in the NFL. Cundiff was signed late in preseason after he was waived by the Baltimore Ravens. He has been the worst kicker in the league this year, making only seven of 12 field goal attempts. Two of his misses have been from inside 40 yards, including a 31-yard misfire in Sunday's 24-17 loss to Atlanta.

Analysis: Though Cundiff made a 23-yarder Sunday, his days in Washington might be numbered.

Analysis: Cundiff missed three earlier attempts, including a 31-yarder that would have put the Redskins (2-2) up by two scores early in the fourth quarter. He also missed first-half tries of 41 and 57 yards.

Analysis: Cundiff was cut Sunday by the Baltimore Ravens, who decided to keep rookie Justin Tucker. Cundiff made the Pro Bowl in 2010, but last season he missed a potential game-tying, 32-yarder against New England in the waning seconds of the AFC title game.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced by the team.
Analysis: Cundiff lost the job to rookie Justin Tucker, who went 5 for 5 on field goals in three preseason games, including two kicks from at least 50 yards. Tucker was invited to camp to challenge Cundiff, who made the Pro Bowl in 2010 but went 1 for 6 from 50 yards and beyond last year. He missed a potential game-tying, 32-yarder against New England in the waning seconds of the AFC title game.

The 32-year-old kicker is worried about retaining his job with the Baltimore Ravens.
Analysis: The veteran is in a duel with rookie Justin Tucker, who took all the kicks in Thursday night's preseason game against Jacksonville. Cundiff says he was "shocked" about not being used.
