Worried about Akers in playoffs, 49ers sign Cundiff

Going into the playoffs with a shaky kicker in David Akers, the 49ers signed Billy Cundiff Tuesday.

What could possibly go wrong?

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, Cundiff was signed after a workout Tuesday, though there was no word of the corresponding roster move.

Maiocco also points out that they’re keeping Akers for the moment, and will let them compete in practice.

Cundiff was released by the Ravens this offseason after missing a potential game-tying 32-yard field goal in last year’s AFC Championship Game.

He was immediately signed by the Redskins, but they cut him after he made 7-of-12 field goals.

Akers is in the midst of a slump, 29-of-42 this season (69.0 percent), his worst mark since 1999.
