Kai Forbath is the latest to walk through the Redskins’ revolving door at the kicker position.

He won the Redskins’ kicking job in a tryout at team headquarters Tuesday. He replaces Billy Cundiff, whom the Redskins released after he missed three field goal attempts of 41 yards or shorter in the last two games.

Forbath, 25, has never kicked in an NFL regular season game. He was undrafted in 2011 despite winning Lou Groza award — given annually to college football’s best kicker — in 2009 as a junior at UCLA.

The Dallas Cowboys signed him in Aug. 2010, but he never kicked for them because of a quadriceps injury.

After the Cowboys waived him in April, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed him to kick while waiting for incumbent Connor Barth to sign his tender. Barth was the second-most accurate field-goal kicker in the NFL last season, so his job was quite secure.

Still, Forbath made all five of his preseason field goal attempts, including two from at least 50 yards and a 43-yarder at FedEx Field against the Redskins in the preseason finale.

Forbath would be the 15th player to attempt a field goal for the Redskins since the start of the 2000 season.

In other roster news, the Redskins waived outside linebacker Markus White and signed linebacker Mario Addison from the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. Addison had two tackles in the Colts’ first three games this season.

The Redskins host the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday.
