ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins released struggling kicker Billy Cundiff on Tuesday and replaced him with free agent Kai Forbath.

Forbath emerged as the winner in a tryout at Redskins Park. He won the Lou Groza Award with UCLA in 2009 as the top kicker in college football, but he has yet to play in the NFL.

Cundiff was signed late in preseason after he was waived by the Baltimore Ravens. He has been the worst kicker in the league this year, making only seven of 12 field goal attempts. Two of his misses have been from inside 40 yards, including a 31-yard misfire in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Forbath was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys last year and spent the entire season on the non-football injured reserve list. He spent this year's training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and made all five field goal attempts in preseason games before being released on Aug. 31.

The Redskins also signed linebacker Mario Addison from the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad and released linebacker Markus White.
