Cundiff was released during training camp by the Baltimore Ravens after he was beaten out by rookie Justin Tucker. He later signed with the Washington Redskins, where he struggled, hitting just 7-of-12 field goals in five games before being released again. In his last full season with the Ravens, Cundiff hit 28-of-37 attempts (75.7 percent) and made 38-of-38 extra point attempts. Cundiff's career-longest field goal is a 56-yard kick he made in 2005 while a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
The 49ers also brought in former Carolina Panthers kicker Justin Medlock for a tryout on Monday. Medlock appeared in 10 games for the Panthers, but misses in three consecutive games led to his release.
