Redskins signing Kai Forbath

Reacting to the struggles of former Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff, the Washington Redskins are signing former UCLA kicker Kai Forbath today, per a league source. BR> Forbath tried out for the Redskins today along with Olindo Mare and Josh Brown.

Cundiff is expected to be released today. He was cut by the Baltimore Ravens during the preseason after being beaten out by rookie kicker Justin Tucker. Cundiff has struggled ever since flubbing a potential game-tying chip shot in the AFC championship game last season while he was with the Ravens.

Forbath is a former Lou Groza Award winner with the Bruins.

He went undrafted last year and was signed by the Dallas Cowboys and spent the season on their reserve non-football injury list.

He had a stint after that with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At UCLA, he was an all-conference selection known for his ability to kick long-distance field goals accurately.
