Bills signed K Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff worked out for Buffalo before the season after Dan Carpenter had a shaky summer. Carpenter missed a 30-yard field goal in Week 4 and is on very shaky ground. The Bills waived KOS Jordan Gay to make room. Cundiff will likely handle kickoffs against the Titans and be insurance for Carpenter.

Free agent K Billy Cundiff worked out for the Bills on Monday.

Coach Rex Ryan has been exasperated with Dan Carpenter all summer, but Carpenter is a better kicker than Cundiff. Either way, Carpenter is on the thinnest of ice, and Cundiff looks like the next man up in Buffalo. The Bills have reportedly also worked out Alex Henery.

Browns released K Billy Cundiff (knee) with an injury settlement.

Cundiff hurt his right, kicking knee in practice on Thursday, but the injury was just a convenient excuse to move on from the struggling kicker. Newly-signed Garrett Hartley will take over the kicking duties for Cleveland.

Billy Cundiff injured his right, kicking knee during practice on Thursday and is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Bengals.

Cundiff was struggling before the injury, so the setback could be a convenient excuse for Cleveland to make a change. The Browns worked out Garrett Hartley, Zach Hocker and Nate Freese earlier in the week. They could also turn to P Spencer Lanning, who kicked in college and made two field goals during the preseason.

Browns K Billy Cundiff has missed four field goals from 44 yards out or closer over the last five games.

Given the nearly automatic climate of kicking in today's NFL, Cundiff's shanks should be met with a pink slip. "It's obviously concerning," Coach Mike Pettine said after Sunday's one-point loss to the Colts. "We get field-goal attempts, we get a chance to put points on the board against a good team and you've got to be able to convert."

Browns re-signed K Billy Cundiff to a one-year, $1.02 million contract.

Cundiff converted 21-of-26 field-goal attempts in 2013, good for an 80.8 success rate. Cundiff's career mark of 76.2 is underwhelming, but the Browns weren't guaranteed to find an upgrade elsewhere.

Browns K Billy Cundiff (quad) is not practicing Wednesday.

Cundiff is questionable for this week's game against the Bengals. He shouldn't have been on any fantasy rosters anyway. Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis is a reasonable plug-n-play for owners looking for help.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 11:09:00 AM

Billy Cundiff exited Sunday's Week 3 game against the Vikings with a quad injury.

He's out for the rest of the game. Spencer Lanning will handle all kicking duties.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 03:10:00 PM

Browns signed K Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff is the one and only kicker on the Browns roster, so he'll be starting Sunday against the Dolphins. Cundiff made just 7-of-12 field-goal attempts for the Redskins last season. Moving on from Phil Dawson, the Browns have gone from one of the league's stablest kicking situations to one of the worst.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 04:11:00 PM

Free agent K Billy Cundiff will work out for the Browns on Tuesday.

Cleveland had also planned to host Dan Carpenter, but Carpenter signed with the Bills on Monday night. The Browns don't have a kicker on the roster. Cundiff went 3-of-3 on field goals this preseason with the Jets.

Jets released K Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff went 3-of-3 on field goals during the preseason, but still gets replaced by Dan Carpenter.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 11:55:00 AM

Jets signed K Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff worked out for Gang Green on Monday. The 33-year-old kicked in five games for the Redskins last season, converting just 7-of-12 field goals. He also spent two weeks on the 49ers' playoff roster but didn't dress. Cundiff will push Nick Folk for the job in New York. Kicker Brett Maher was waived to make room.

The Jets are working out free agent K Billy Cundiff on Monday.

Cundiff appeared in five games with the Redskins last season and converted just 7-of-12 field goal attempts. He'd push Nick Folk in training camp if signed.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 10:42:00 AM

49ers waived K Billy Cundiff.

The 49ers signed Cundiff prior to the Divisional Round to challenge David Akers, but Cundiff was inactive. Akers, who missed 13 FGs this season, connected on his lone attempt against the Packers, a 36-yarder at the end of the first half. Cundiff was also released by Washington earlier in the season.
