Somewhat surprisingly, Washington was the first team to draft a kicker this year - Zach Hocker (Arkansas). Although he'll compete with returning starter Kai Forbath on placekicks, he'll do moreso on kickoffs, with the potential of being retained as a kickoff specialist. In two partial seasons with the team, Forbath has made 35 of 40 (87.5%) field goals. Free agent acquisitiosn Robert malone and Blake Clingan are competing for the holder/punter job. Long snapper Nick Sundberg returns from IR, spelled by fill-in Kyle Nelson. After hovering near the top ten in attempted kicking points for three straight years, Washington dropped to 29th in 2013.

Redskins | Competition at kicker
(Fri Jul 11, 09:33 AM) - Washington Redskins PKs Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker will compete for the starting job in training camp. Forbath has the early edge because of experience, but the rookie Hocker has done well on field goal attempts so far in offseason practice. Forbath also has spent the offseason working on kickoffs.
