Billy Cundiff won't get his chance for redemption, at least not in a Ravens uniform. A little more than seven months after he missed a 32-yard field-goal attempt that thwarted the Ravens' Super Bowl hopes and just three days after he was benched for an undrafted rookie in the third preseason game, Cundiff had his contract terminated by the Ravens on Sunday as the team trimmed its roster to 81.

Alexis A. Savage, 21, hair and makeup artist, Towson Your favorite all-time Ravens moment? When Justin Tucker made the winning field goal and helped us beat the Patriots last year. Cundiff made me cry for like a week from the previous year. The biggest way you've displayed your Ravens fandom? I was shopping in Annapolis Mall's Victoria Secret store for some cute Ravens gear and I got into a shouting match with a female Redskins fan who worked at the store, after she threw the only Ravens shirt on the ground.

For the first time since he was beaten out by Justin Tucker last year for the kicking job, former Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff will return to M&T Bank Stadium for a regular season game Sunday. Cundiff was signed by the Cleveland Browns as the replacement for Phil Dawson after they cut Shayne Graham during the final major roster cutdown. Cundiff was a Pro Bowl selection in 2010 with the Ravens, but faltered during the 2011 season as his infamous rushed 32-yard field goal missed badly during the final moments of an AFC championship game loss to the New England Patriots.

OK, I was wrong about Billy Cundiff. Really, really wrong. Sharp readers of this newspaper - do we have any other kind? -- may recall that right before the season started, I wrote that the Ravens had made a mistake cutting Biilly Cundiff and going with rookie Justin Tucker as their kicker. I wrote that a team with serious designs on a Super Bowl berth needed an experienced kicker who had been through the NFL wars. And I wrote that Cundiff would bounce back from that disastrous 32-yard miss in the AFC title game last January against the New England Patriots and be dependable kicker again.

On Friday night, Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff booted a field goal in a game at M&T Bank Stadium for the first time since his miss sealed the Ravens' fate in last year's AFC championship game in Foxboro, Mass. There was a smattering of applause when he connected from 33 yards to give the Ravens a 3-0 lead in the first quarter of the 27-12 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions. He later added a 44-yarder. Rookie kicker Justin Tucker, who is competing with Cundiff for a roster spot, made both of his attempts Friday.

TAKE THAT KID: Undrafted free agent Justin Tucker has mostly gotten the better of incumbent Billy Cundiff in the kicking competition, but not Monday. Both were good from 29, 34, 41, 52 and 58 yards. But with the rest of the team getting into each kick, Cundiff converted from 61 yards while Tucker's attempt from the same distance sailed wide right. In fairness to Tucker, there was an issue with the snap that threw off his timing a little bit. HIM AGAIN: With what he's done in the first two preseason games, it shouldn't be a surprise that two of the three interceptions in Monday's practice were made by rookie safety Omar Brown.

Billy Cundiff won't get his chance for redemption, at least not in a Ravens' uniform. A little more than seven months after he missed a 32-yard field goal that thwarted the Ravens' Super Bowl hopes and just three days after he was benched for an undrafted rookie in the third preseason game, Cundiff was waived by the Ravens today, according to multiple sources. The move, which was extremely unexpected when training camp began but became self evident when Cundiff did not kick at all in the team's 48-17 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thursday, leaves the Ravens' kicking job to Justin Tucker, a rookie free agent out of Texas.

There isn't any word yet on whether the 49ers intend to stick with kicker David Akers for the Super Bowl. However, it's clear that they can't turn to Billy Cundiff again if they opt for a change. League rules stipulate that players cut during the postseason are ineligible to sign with another team until after the Super Bowl. The 49ers waived Cundiff on Friday, the day they departed for Atlanta, where they played the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game two days later.

The painting is hung prominently in the private office of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Titled "Wide Left," it shows an oversized football, a tiny goal post and the final score of 23-20, collectively representing the end of last year's AFC championship game won by the Patriots on former Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff's botched 32-yard field goal attempt in the waning seconds. The artist who created the colorful 4-foot-by-4-foot painting laughs at some of the irony of what transpired since he gave it to Kraft last summer.

In this town, it remains a sepia-toned nightmare: Billy Cundiff's 32-yard field-goal attempt in the chill of Gillette Stadium drifting left, left, left - so far left you thought it would smack one of the cheerleaders. Cundiff has never recovered from that miss in last year's AFC championship, the one that left the Ravens in stunned disbelief and the New England Patriots headed to the Super Bowl with a 23-20 win. Funny thing is, Justin Tucker can't get away from that miss, either.

When the Ravens cut incumbent Billy Cundiff in favor of undrafted rookie Justin Tucker, the Washington Redskins swooped in and signed Cundiff. But after five games during which Cundiff missed five of 12 field-goal attempts, Washington went with an unknown in Kai Forbath. That decision is paying huge dividends for the Redskins, who edged the Ravens, 31-28, in overtime Sunday on the strength of three Forbath field goals, including the 34-yard game winner. Forbath tried to downplay his heroics, chalking up his performance as a simple matter of doing his job. “I'm here to put some points on the board for our team to help us win,” he said.

Rookie kicker Justin Tucker has impressed the Ravens in a lot of ways so far, the least of which was with his vocal cords when the Texas native serenaded his teammates with his renditions of hit Italian opera classics. “The guys appreciate his talent, that's where it starts,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday. “The guy sings Italian opera in front of our players.  So, if you're an Italian opera person, that's probably pretty normal.  For a lot of our guys, that seems a little different in the football culture.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is an aspiring musician but there has been one song this week that has constantly been on his mind. "I've got that Monday Night Football theme song in my head,” said Tucker who will kick in his first NFL regular season game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday. “It's definitely a dream come true, being able to open up on Monday Night Football.” Is Tucker ready for some NFL football? His kicking battle with veteran incumbent Billy Cundiff was one of the talks of training camp, but since the Ravens made the decision over a week ago to terminate Cundiff's contract and give the kicking job to the undrafted rookie out of Texas, Tucker has gotten an opportunity to settle in. “Everything does happen really quickly, but I feel like the last week or so, there is also sort of a calmness to it that I felt the last few days,” said Tucker.

Billy Cundiff didn't have to wait long, nor did he have to travel far, to get another kicking job. Cundiff, whose contract was terminated by the Ravens on Sunday after he lost his job to undrafted rookie Justin Tucker, has agreed to sign with the Washington Redskins. The news was first reported by ESPN. Washington reportedly has cut Graham Gano, who was believed to have won the kicking job when the Redskins cut Neil Rackers yesterday. Gano was in competition for the Ravens' kicking job before the 2009 season, but he was ultimately beaten out by Steven Hauschka.
