Following last Sunday’s second-week-in-a-row shaky performance by kicker Billy Cundiff, the Redskins brought in three kickers for auditions on Tuesday. Now Comcast SportsNet is reporting that the Redskins will sign former UCLA standout Kai Forbath as their new kicker.
Forbath was considered one of the top kickers in the 2011 draft but he went undrafted. He has been in training camp and preseason games with the Cowboys and Bucs. In preseason games he was 5-5 on field goal attempts. He has not attempted a kick in the regular season.
The obligitory tweet was sent by the kicker earlier today.
Couldn’t be more excited to join Redskins nation! #HTTR
