Buffalo Bills Sign K Dave Rayner, Per Agent

With kicker Rian Lindell shelved for the foreseeable future with a shoulder injury, the Buffalo Bills have signed free agent Dave Rayner to take his place, per his agent, Paul Sheehy.

Rayner was one of four kickers to work out for the Bills on Tuesday, beating out other familiar names like Rhys Lloyd, Shayne Graham and Brandon Coutu. After spending 2010 with the Detroit Lions, Rayner was most recently with the Oakland Raiders, where he made over $40,000 for one kickoff as a fill-in for the injured Sebastian Janikowski.

In his seventh year out of Michigan State, Rayner has connected on 55-of-75 kicks throughout his career. Last year with Detroit, he was a rock solid 13-of-16 on field goal tries filling in for Jason Hanson - including 2-of-2 from over 50 yards.

Lindell, per a Buffalo News report, is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. He was injured tackling Joe McKnight on the opening kickoff of the second half in Sunday's 27-11 loss to the New York Jets.
