Due to the struggles of veteran place kicker David Akers, the San Francisco 49ers will try out former kickers Billy Cundiff and Jason Medlock, reports Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area. Billy Cundiff is scheduled to kick for 49ers and Jason Medlock is also believed to take part in audition. — Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) January 1, 2013 Akers missed a pair of field goals during San Francisco’s win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, one from 44 yards and another from 40. One the season, Akers missed 13 field goal attempts, including four in the team’s last three games. The 49ers previously worked out Cundiff earlier in the year as a result of Akers’ struggles. San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh has said that he will consider signing a second kicker to the roster or just replacing the veteran Akers altogether. Cundiff was released by the Baltimore Ravens during training camp before signing on with the Washington Redskins earlier this year. He made only seven of 12 field goal attempts before being released. Medlock started the season with the Carolina Panthers, appearing in 10 games before being let go. He missed attempts in three straight games before the Panthers elected to hand kicking duties over to Graham Gano.
