The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows is reporting that the search has begun for a new kicker to replace Akers, who was a miserable 2-of-4 in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. It only tacked on to his already subpar year.
The 49ers have the option to keep Akers aboard, though. Jim Harbaugh hinted at Monday's press conference that the team could keep two kickers. However, Barrows is reporting that Billy Cundiff is on his way to Santa Clara for his second tryout with the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs.
Here are the 49ers' best options at kicker if they do, in fact, replace Akers.
