Lindell needed to be perfect

Rian Lindell, Buffalo’s latest player release is likely to find a job elsewhere in the league, as he’s still a very capable kicker. With the Bills drafting Dustin Hopkins in the sixth round, however Lindell needed to be perfect to hang onto his job.

Lindell was more accurate than Hopkins over the long haul stretching back to the spring practices, but in camp he wasn’t dramatically better than Hopkins.

With the investment made in Hopkins, the rookie kicker just had to show progress as camp went along.

The only shame was that Lindell was released needing just 32 points to become the Bills all-time leading scorer.
