Bills new punter has strong leg

Bills newest punter Brian Stahovich was one of five tryout players that signed a contract with the Bills following the team’s three-day voluntary veteran minicamp. Stahovich certainly earned that contract with an impressive three days of punting.

Stahovich, a San Diego State product, was booming kicks in the Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse during the three practice sessions. Unofficially Buffalobills.com had his hang times consistently between 4.6 and 4.9 seconds.

In practice he did have a mis-hit ball or two where hang time and direction were not ideal. He also isn’t lightning quick from catch to kick, but there is potential in the two-time Mountain West Conference 1st team punter (2010, 2011). There is natural leg strength there. His intangibles check out well as he’s been described as a dedicated player.

He’ll serve as legitimate competition for Bills incumbent punter Shawn Powell.
