Bucs add kicker Rian Lindell
By Pat Yasinskas
With Lawrence Tynes slow to recover from a toe injury, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought in another veteran kicker.
The team announced Wednesday morning that it has signed Rian Lindell.
The Bucs previously lost Connor Barth for the season when he suffered a torn Achilles tendon while playing in a charity basketball game during the offseason. They signed veteran Lawrence Tynes, thinking he would take Barth’s place for the season.
But Tynes has been unable to get health and the Bucs have gone through the early stages of the preseason with only one healthy kicker, Derek Dimke.
