49ers can’t re-sign Billy Cundiff

The San Francisco 49ers signed kicker Billy Cundiff a couple of weeks ago, but decided to cut him last week and continue to stick with David Akers.

Akers missed a crucial field goal during yesterday’s narrow victory over the Falcons. If the 49ers are going to want to sign another kicker for the Super Bowl, they’re not going to be able to sign Cundiff.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, since Cundiff was cut during the postseason, a team can’t sign him until after the playoffs.
