Buccaneers sign K Rian Lindell

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Buccaneers sign someone to help reinvigorate their kicker competition.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed kicker Rian Lindell, as first reported  by Alex Marvez of Fox Sports. The Buccaneers were scheduled to hold kicker tryouts tomorrow, but apparently they've cancelled those.

Lindell has a career field goal average of 81.3% and has 13 years experience in the NFL. He has managed to hit over 86% of his kicks the past two years and has missed exactly one extra point in his career. Lindell even has the leg to hold his own on kickoffs, although Michael Koenen should still be the better option, there.

36-year old Lindell won't be guaranteed a roster spot, as he will likely compete with Derek Dimke for a roster spot, as Lawrence Tynes appears to be headed to injured reserve with his ingrown toenail, as first noted by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports. The Bucs signed Tynes after kicker Connor Barth tore his Achilles in a charity basketball game.
