A former Raven might be the Steelers' next kicker

Update, 2:07 p.m.: The Steelers have signed kicker Garrett Hartley, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Pittsburgh Steelers might turn to a former Raven to replace kicker Shaun Suisham, who suffered a season-ending injury Sunday.

Suisham tore his ACL in the preseason Hall of Fame game against Minnesota Vikings. So, the Ravens' chief rival in the AFC North is trying out kickers Tuesday -- including ex-Ravens kickers Billy Cundiff and Shayne Graham, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Cundiff spent half of 2009 and all of the 2010 and 2011 seasons with the Ravens. He even made the Pro Bowl in 2010 before his missed field goal attempt in the 2012 AFC championship game and the emergence of Justin Tucker in Baltimore led to his dismissal during training camp.

Cundiff spent the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns; he made 22 of 29 field goal attempts last year.

Graham's Ravens career was significantly shorter and without much drama.

Cundiff won the Ravens' kicking job over Graham in the summer of 2010, but Graham played one game for the team in December 2011, kicking two field goals in a 20-14 win over the Browns in place of Cundiff, who was injured.

The Steelers will also consider Jay Feely, Garrett Hartley and Alex Henery, the Post-Gazette reported.
