Report: Billy Cundiff, Nate Kaeding work out for 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers might not be done tweaking the starting lineup.

Harrison: Week 13 Power Rankings

The team spent Tuesday working out veteran kickers Billy Cundiff and Nate Kaeding, a league source told Matt Maiocco of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Consider it a touch of advanced scouting.

The Niners' David Akers, a 14-year-veteran, has struggled this season, converting just 19-of-27 attempts. Akers missed a 50-yarder in Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints and had another kick blocked.

Cundiff and Kaeding don't exactly boast spotless records. Cundiff infamously botched a 32-yard field-goal attempt in last season's AFC championship for the Baltimore Ravens and was released by the Washington Redskins earlier this year. Kaeding was a long-time regular-season gem for the San Diego Chargers but remains a dubious 8 of 15 in the postseason.

If Jim Harbaugh is willing to flip-flop his starting quarterback midway through a potential Super Bowl run, you better believe the kicker is expendable.

If you see Mr. Akers in the streets, give him your support.
