The Ravens signed Billy Cundiff today, replacing released kicker Steve Hauschka.
It was between Cundiff and former Buccaneers kicker, Mike Nugent.
I would have preferred Nugent over Cundiff, but it's like picking between a green and red M&M.
Cundiff has played for the Cowboys, Saints and Browns. The Browns called him when their kicker, Phil Dawson, was injured earlier this season, and Cundiff went 6 for 6, including kicking the game winning field goal during the Browns' only win this season.
So it's safe to say that Cundiff is battle tested (joking).
Before the Browns, Cundiff was out of the NFL for 2 seasons. His career field goal percentage is 74.2%.
He's not Matt Stover, but he should be an improvement over Hauschka and that is all the Ravens can hope for in a kicker during Week 11.
