Video: Kicking Lessons with Billy Cundiff

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 28, 2012 – 3:17 pm

The Washington Redskins announced several roster moves early Monday evening as they were required to cut their preseason roster down from 90 players to 75.

Though that roster number must be reduced to 53 by Friday, the team in the meantime took advantage of an opportunity to get itself a Pro Bowl kicker.

Billy Cundiff, who was named All-Pro and to the Pro Bowl in 2010 as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, signed with the Redskins on Tuesday, two days after he was released by the Ravens.

Cundiff brings with him several accolades, but one thing that stood out to me was that he set the NFL record for most touchbacks in a season (44) in 2010. Though many point to field goal percentage as the main attribute for a kicker, coaches also look at where their kickers can help in the field-position game, and Cundiff is certainly a standout in that regard.

For those looking for a close-up at Cundiff’s kicking techniques on field goals and kickoffs, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a video (via coachzauner on YouTube) of Cundiff working out with former NFL kicking coach Gary Zauner:

As an end note, Cundiff’s spot on the Redskins’ roster didn’t come without a price. In this case, it was the release of kicker Graham Gano.

Gano was always pleasant to talk to and is definitely someone you put in your ‘good guys’ list.

He showed a lot of class Tuesday morning when he posted this on Twitter:

Best of luck to you, Graham.
