The Baltimore Ravens reportedly have cut kicker Billy Cundiff on Sunday. The team had yet to confirm release of the former Pro Bowl kicker, which was reported by ESPN.com. The team had cancelled its afternoon practice. The move hands the Ravers' place-kicking job to undrafted rookie Justin Tucker, who is 5-for-5 in three preseason games. Cuniff has been the Ravens' kicker for the past 2 1/2 seasons. Last season he made 28 of 37 field-goal attempts. He had made 12 of 13 field goals in the playoffs until he missed 32-yard fourth-quarter kick against the New England Patriots that would have tied the AFC Championship Game last January.
