Bills Cut Rian Lindell

Bills_Rian_Lindell_2013The Buffalo Bills announced that they have released longtime kicker Rian Lindell, clearing the way for sixth-round pick Dustin Hopkins to take over the job.

Lindell spent the last 10 years doing the placekicking for the Bills, making him the longest-tenured player on the roster this summer right up until the point that the guillotine fell on Monday morning. Lindell made just over 83 percent of his field goals over that period of time and held off a challenge from another draft pick, John Potter, last season before finally getting replaced by a younger model this year.
