Washington - The Redskins have hired a new placekicker.
Graham Gano is out, Billy Cundiff in. Cundiff was cut just two days ago by the Baltimore Ravens, now he replaces Gano. The Skins have also released veteran tight end Chris Cooley, who played his entire eight-year career in Washington. Injuries held him to five games and only eight catches last season. The Redskins plan to use Fred Davis as their starting tight end.
