Buccaneers sign veteran kicker Rian Lindell

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed veteran kicker Rian Lindell

and waived linebacker Joe Holland.

Lindell spent the past 10 seasons with the Buffalo Bills, where

he ranked second in franchise history with 225 field goals made and

980 points scored.

The Bucs signed the veteran of 13 seasons because pre-training

camp acquisition Lawrence Tynes has a toe injury that has prevented

him from kicking this preseason.

With Tynes out, Derek Dimke has handled the kicking duties in

practice and is five for five on field goal attempts through two

exhibition games.

Lindell has also played for the Seattle Seahawks. He’s made 81

percent of his field goal attempts and 401 of 402 extra points

during his NFL career.
