I just heard on nfl sirius that the ravens cut Billy Cundiff in favor of their young kicker, Turner I think.

I think this an obvious question but should the steelers sign him?

My answer is an emphatic YES!

A lot better than anybody we got now. I'd be in favor of it

No. They got rid of Cundiff to save money. We need to do so far more than they do.
Neither Hrapmann or Suisham has missed a kick this preseason.

Cundiff's placekicking has been spotty at best other than 2010, not any better than Suisham's, also not significantly worse. After the kickoffs got moved up 5 yards Cundiffs value in kickoffs really dropped off IMO.

I think you bring up a good point on cost. That would be the determining factor imo.

As for the other kicks, there ok but don't have the leg Cundiff has.

What is this leg that he has? His longest kick is 56 yards. He has a huge leg, but his accuracy sucks from 50+ yards. He was a good kickoff guy, but since the kickoffs were moved to the 35, everyone and their mother is a good kickoff guy.

Also Hrapmann had a kick off go through the uprights and during warmups kicks 53-55 yarders with plenty of room to spare, and has a 59 yarder in a college game. If the Steelers want someone with leg, they'd go for him, no reason to spend money (which they don't have) on a has-been kicker from a rival team.

If the team is leaning Suisham right now, yes...

if they are leaning Hrapmann, no...because salary cap has to be the primary factor in that decision.

Cundiff is >> Suisham. They both choke on occasion, but Cundiff is an overall better kicker, I think.

How has Cundiff been on Heinz Field...that should also be factored in.

Cundiff, at best, is a lateral move from Suisham.

No.

Cundiff does not have the leg people think he does, nor does he have any sort of accuracy from 50+ yards.

While I do think he's better than Suisham, it's not enough of an upgrade to make it worth it IMO. I think you guys should stay put.
