Billy Cundiff Isn't An Option To Replace 49ers PK David Akers
The 49ers signed Billy Cundiff on Jan. 1 to compete with struggling kicker David Akers for the right to kick in the playoffs.
But after the team waived Cundiff on Friday, he is no longer an option for the Super Bowl, a league source confirmed.
The reason is because the 49ers are not allowed to recall Cundiff. It's the same reason that once the 49ers waived running back Brandon Jacobs after the regular season, he was ineligible to play for any team in the playoffs. Once the regular season ends, waiver claims are not filled until after the Super Bowl.
