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
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.
