I'd much rather have Hrappman. I do not feel confident at all if Sushi has to come in to kick a game winner.
And Sushi simply doesn't have the leg to kick in Heinz Field. Period.
Hrappman is cut. Just heard on 93.7.
Rackers, Cundiff and Josh Brown are among the veteran kickers that have been released. I've always liked Rackers, but he's getting up in years and has been inside or in mild climates for a while. Could be worth a look.
Got a text confirming he's been cut. Looks like another season of Suisham.

The Redskins cut both Neil Rackers and Graham Gano and signed ex-Raven Billy Cundiff.
Final Ruthless Mock:
1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
Gano was 31 of 41 in 2011 with a long FG of 59 yards...he also had a better pct. of touchbacks than Suisham. Maybe he is worth a quick look?

I found video of a blocked FG and XP against the Seahawks and also a blocked FG against the Colts. On all three the right side of the line just got blown up and the kicks were easily blocked. Certainly can't fault Gano for those, and if it was that bad 3 times, it likely was that bad 3 more.
