The Washington Redskins have gone with 17 different kickers in the last 17 years, and when it seemed like that carousel had finally stopped, especially after the announcement that Graham Gano had won the job over Neil Rackers, that wheel started turning again. Gano was cut. Billy Cundiff signed.
One day after winning the kicking battle in Washington, Gano has been released by the Redskins in favor of former Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff.
The Washington Redskins returned to work on Monday with two goals in mind: trim their roster and prepare for the preseason finale.
Ashburn, VA-Graham Gano’s job is safe, for now, as the Redskins had to cut their 90-man roster to 75 today and Neil Rackers, who was battling with Gano for the starting kickers job, was cut.

Mike Shanahan loves competition within the locker room. A litany of position battles will be the focus as Training Camp kicks off later this week, but one of the hotly contested positions getting overlooked features a head-to-head between young and old, as Washington attempts to sure up one of its biggest deficiencies from last season.
Washington Redskins kicker Graham Gano finds himself in familiar territory this offseason. 10 missed field goals last season have many scrutinizing him closely. And he’s also in another kicking competition — this time with veteran Neil Rackers.
Graham Gano is having a good week. Not only did the kicker receive a tender offer from the Washington Redskins, but rehab on his injured back is going very well.
