Report by @alexmarvez on Bucs signing Lindell surely means they're going to IR Lawrence Tynes, who has been dealing with a toe injury.

Word out of Buffalo was he "no longer has an NFL leg"...not pumped about this.

Not all that excited by this move either.

What you mean to say is "word out of bitter Bills fans"? take it with a grain of salt. He was 21 of 24 last season, he's still very accurate, I'm sure he'll be solid this season.

It's hard to be bitter over a kicker.

He was with the team since 2003, and it's not the point of it been a "kicker", it's just how a lot of fan bases are... a player they used to like leaves them [this time he was released] and they don't want him to do well somewhere else so they focus on and exaggerate the negative stuff even though the player is still good.

Oh I know, I frequent the news board often and love watching the fans say how awful every departing player was, but this is a kicker. He only attempted 2 kicks from 50+ yards last year, made 1. His 40-49 was good, but that's basically exactly what Bills fans said. They said anything beyond about 46 is a wash, but he's still very accurate under that.

Why sign a washed up kicker? Dimkes done enough to earn the gig. We need dlineman.

Whose to say that he even beats out Demke. Dont get ahead of yourselfs. We needed to bring in some competition at the K position and obviously were looking for a veteran. Tynes was struggling in camp and couldn't get on the field. I don't mind this move at all.

I still think Dimke gets the nod when the season comes. We'll see though.

We know you like Dom and all, but this move was pointless. Dimke has pretty much shown in practice and games he's been solid.

The defensive line is more in question outside of Clayborn and McCoy.

I think we all want more depth on the line but the options are limited. Pretty sure we aren't interested in Seymour, not sure who else we would be interested in
