The Washington Redskins will be working out at least three different place kickers on Tuesday.

The Washington Redskins will be working out at least three different place kickers on Tuesday, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com. Olindo Mare, Josh Brown and Kai Forbath are all expected to try out for the team.

The Redskins are interested in free agent kickers due to the recent struggles of current kicker Billy Cundiff. Despite kicking the game winning field goal in the final moments of Week 4's contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cundiff missed three kicks over the course of the game, including attempts from 37, 41 and 57 yards.

Those struggles carried over to Sunday's loss against the Atlanta Falcons when Cundiff missed a 31-yard attempt at the end of the second quarter that could have given the Redskins a 10 point lead. Instead, the Falcons converted a 79-yard scoring drive immediately after the kick that resulted in the game being tied at seven heading into the half.

Cundiff is 7-for-12 on field goal attempts this season.

In addition to place kickers, La Canfora reports the team is also looking at long snappers.
