The Buffalo Bills have signed 29-year old kicker Dave Rayner.  Rayner played in 1 game earlier this year for the Raiders, but they got shut out, so all he did was kickoff.  Rayner has now played in 52 games in his first six years in the NFL and he has connected on 55 of 75 field goals (73.3%).  He has also made 64 of 65 extra points as he has scored 229 points so far in his NFL career.  The Bills hope that Rayner does a good job while Rian Lindell is out of action.
