I'm waiting for a package at my crib, so, I'm bored and decided to blog about Rian Lindell. Yeah, I'm Mr. Overkill over here.
The Bills cut Lindell. Not exactly shocking as when you draft a kicker they normally are going to win the job. Lindell only has about 2-3 years left based on age and when you kick in Buffalo, you could probably shave a year or two off when you start getting old. I'm sure he will get picked up by a dome team at some point. Overall, I thought Lindell had a nice career in Buffalo. He was a perfect 10 for 10 on FG attempts when the weather was below 21 degrees and only missed 11 out of 65 FG attempts when the temp was between 21-40 degrees. In windy conditions, Lindell was 66 of 73 on FGs between 21-40 yards. In precipitation, Lindell boomed 24 of 26 kicks, including being 2-2 on 50-yarders.
Sounds good...Except I'm a bit bitter about some of his missed kicks.
I'm sure all kickers, great or bad, miss big kicks, but the mis...

Last week I thought that three players were on the bubble who the Bills might regret cutting.
Of course that was before Buffalo released long time kicker Rian Lindell (which I predicted), and LB Nigel Bradham was cited for marijuana possession.
Continued drug busts and off the field issues can get even the best of players assigned to bubble watch but, since this is a first offense...
