The Ravens showed their cards Sunday afternoon when they announced they have released veteran kicker Billy Cundiff. Cundiff will be best known in Baltimore for missing a game-tying field goal against the Patriots in last season’s AFC Championship game, but that’s not what brought him to his end in Baltimore.
Tucker has exhibited an extremely strong leg during the preseason. His accuracy and strength has been impressive to watch.
Cundiff will find work somewhere. He is a former Pro Bowl kicker.
“Billy had a great camp, the best he has had with us,” coach John Harbaugh said. “He showed, like he always has, a toughness and an ability to come back and be a top-flight NFL kicker.

The Ravens have parted ways with former Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff.Fantasy Spin:Cundiff had a nice run with Baltimore but unfortunately he'll probably be most remembered for shanking an easy 32-yard attempt that would have sent last season's AFC Championship game into overtime. With Cundiff gone, rookie Justin Tucker will now handle the kicking duties for the Ravens.
