Can Kai Forbath withstand a challenge for his place-kicking job?

After years of instability at place kicker, the Redskins seemed to have finally found their guy when they signed Kai Forbath two years ago, and saw him make 17 of 18 field goals as a first-year player. Forbath’s accuracy dipped a little last season when he made 18 of 22 with a long of 50 yards. But his .818 success clip still proved far better than those of his two most immediate...

Bears draft a punter, while Lions, Redskins add at kicker

Just three specialists — one punter and two placekickers — were selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Bears struck first, taking Miami (Fla.) punter Pat O’Donnell in Round Six (No. 191 overall).
