SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers have released Billy Cundiff, making David Akers the only kicker on the roster heading into Sunday's NFC championship at Atlanta.

The move came hours before the 49ers boarded a flight to Atlanta on Friday. San Francisco signed Cundiff on Jan. 1 to compete with the struggling Akers, a 15-year veteran who made 29 of 42 field-goal attempts in the regular season.

Cundiff was inactive for San Francisco's 45-31 win over Green Bay in the divisional playoff. Akers made a 36-yard field goal in his lone attempt in the game.

Cundiff had hoped for a chance at redemption in these playoffs. He missed a potential tying 32-yarder that might have kept Baltimore and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh's big brother, John, from reaching the Super Bowl last season.
