Bucs sign PK Lindell

The SportsXchange

Kicker Rian Lindell signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the 14th-year veteran stands a good chance to open the regular season as the team's kicker.

The Bucs lost Connor Barth to a torn Achilles tendon over the offseason and signed Lawrence Tynes, but Tynes has been unable to practice due to a knee injury. That has left inexperienced Derek Dimke as the only healthy kicker in camp.

Lindell spent the past 10 seasons with the Buffalo Bills and holds franchise records in field goal percentage (83.3), consecutive PAT's made (225), field goal percentage in a single season (92.0) and consecutive field goals made (18), but was released this week as the Bills chose to go with sixth-round rookie Dustin Hopkins.

Tampa Bay also announced it has waived linebacker Joe Holland.
