Orchard Park, N.Y. – The Buffalo Bills have
released the longest-tenured player on their roster.
Kicker Rian Lindell spent 10 seasons with the
team before it released him Monday morning, in favor of rookie Dustin Hopkins.
Lindell, 36, is the most-accurate kicker in
team history, making 83 percent of his field goals. He’s also the
second-leading scorer in team history, with 980 points.
Lindell spent three seasons in Seattle before
coming to Buffalo in 2003.
He signed a four-year, $11 million contract with the Bills prior to the 2012 season.
