Ravens cut Cundiff and others

The Baltimore Ravens have started to make cuts and kicker Billy Cundiff was included. Cundiff was a Pro Bowl kicker for the Ravens but did not end his career with the team well.

Cundiff missed the game tying field goal against New England last season and has been on thin ice ever since. Rookie Justin Tucker out played him for the job.

I had some off the record conversations with Cundiff back when I was an intern at WBAL. He was always nice and easy to talk to.

Here is the Ravens press release.

The Baltimore Ravens made the following roster moves Sunday afternoon, all of which will become official with the NFL at 4 p.m. tomorrow (Monday, Aug. 27):

Player Pos. Ht. Wt. Exp. College

Cundiff, Billy K 6-1 212 8 Drake

Head coach John Harbaugh had the following to say about the release of Cundiff:

“Billy had a great camp, the best he has had with us. He showed, like he always has, a toughness and an ability to come back and be a top-flight NFL kicker. These decisions are never easy, and this one was difficult for all of us – Ozzie [Newsome], Jerry [Rosburg] and me. Of course, that says something about Justin [Tucker], the way he has kicked and our belief in him. But, that does not say something less about Billy. Billy was ready in every way to be our kicker. He’ll kick in the NFL. He’s a very good kicker and an even better person.”
