Packers cut K Tavecchio

Published On: Aug 26 2013 03:06:52 PM CDT

GREEN BAY -

 The race to kick for the Packers is down to two candidates again after the team released Giorgio Tavecchio.

That leaves incumbent Mason Crosby and newly-signed rookie free agent Zach Ramirez competing to kick for Green Bay.

Tavecchio had signed as a free agent in March. General manager Ted Thompson announced Tavecchio's release Monday, a day after the team signed Ramirez.

All three kickers took turns at practice Sunday.

Crosby went 10 for 11, missing wide left from 53 yards. Tavecchio went 9 for 11, missing wide right from 45 and wide left from 63.

Ramirez went 10 for 11, with his miss coming from 45 yards.

The veteran Crosby struggled last year, hitting on just 21 of 33 attempts.
