Baltimore Signs Cundiff as Kicker

From the Baltimore Sun

The Ravens signed Billy Cundiff to be their new kicker, the team announced Wednesday.

The addition of Cundiff comes one day after the Ravens released Steve Hauschka, who missed three of his last seven field goals and had an extra point blocked.

Cundiff, 29, has made 66 of 89 career field goals (74.2 percent). He last played for the Cleveland Browns (beating out Matt Stover in a workout), but he was released Nov. 3 after Phil Dawson recovered from a pulled right calf muscle. Cundiff converted all six field goals for the Browns this season.

My ability to pick the new kickers is just as good as Steve Haushcka’s ability to kick clutch field goals. I picked Gano before the season and thought Nugent would get the nod this week.

It remains to be seen if Billy Cundiff is the long term solution or not. But my gut feeling is there is a reason he’s on his ninth team in eight seasons in the NFL.

    Jergensen,

    Get your facts right! Doesn’t your job require accurate information? Cundiff did not beat Matt Stover in a workout – ever! Stover never went to Cleveland. He declined the offer to visit the Cleveland Browns for the workout and signed the next week with the Colts.

  2. Say what you want Toole.

    This was verified by two other my sources in addition to the Sun. I wasn’t sure about it either until I checked.

    Do you have other sources that report differently?

    • Toole says:

      well your sources are incorrect…. why don’t you go to the only 2 sources that know the truth. Ask the Cleveland Browns – they will verify that Matt Stover did not come for a workout/tryout – but he was asked to come…. and if the Browns won’t talk to you then ask Stover – he’s an honest guy and he’s talking to all the Baltimore media. I’ll be waiting for your mea culpa

      • So you want me to get my facts right yet you have no facts of your own?

        My sources haven’t steered me wrong before so I’ll continue to trust them until I hear or see otherwise. I’m certainly not adverse to writing a retraction. But let’s be honest. Isn’t this a minor point of contention?

    So you are unwilling to do the work necessary to get the truth? Sources are wrong all the time and retractions are written everyday of the week. Anytime you report a fictitious event that never happened – it’s not a minor point of contention to anyone who reads your site.

    I have source for you – ask Billy Cundiff if he ever competed against Matt Stover.

    Im sure you’re already writing your retraction after reading Jamison’s clarification.

  6. No. Please enlighten me about Mr. Hensley’s clarification about the story he printed. I haven’t seen it.
