Cundiff to Boot It?

The Packers signed former Cowboys' kicker Billy Cundiff yesterday shortly after he was waived by Tampa Bay. TB had signed him as backup insurance in February in case their kicker, Matt Bryant, left in free agency. He probably has a slightly longer kick-off leg than Ryan Longwell, but his accuracy -- particularly on long field goals and bad weather (welcome to Lambeau) -- is suspect. He made 73.2% of his field goals (60 of 82 attempts) with the Cowboys. Cundiff is now the only kicker in the Packers' fold but will undoubtedly not be the last.
