The Redskins signed kicker Billy Cundiff less than 24 hours after he was released by the Ravens.

Washington had released Neil Rackers on Monday, the NFL deadline to reduce rosters to 75 players, and named Graham Gano its placekicker.

Cundiff lost a battle with undrafted rookie Justin Tucker with the Ravens. He'll be remembered by Ravens fans for his 32-yard game-tying field goal attempt in the final seconds of the AFC Championship game at New England in January 2012.

Gano, 25, missed 10 field goals last season -- five were blocked -- but he was initially kept on the roster over the veteran Rackers.
