Rayner’s 4 days with Cowboys

Bills replacement kicker Dave Rayner has bounced around from team to team in his seven-year NFL career. Often an emergency replacement kicker, Rayner has also been part of several training camp competitions, one of which took place in Dallas this past summer.

Rayner was late to the party. Injuries to a couple of Dallas’ kicking candidates led to Rayner’s arrival.

“It was late in the preseason,” said Rayner. “I got to kick in the Dallas preseason game at Miami and had to attempt a 51-yarder and a 48-yarder in the mud of the infield at Dolphins stadium because it had been raining.”

Rayner missed them both wide right. The next day he was released spending a total of four days with the Cowboys.

“I don’t know how you can be convinced of a kicker’s abilities after four days,” he said.

It wouldn’t be shocking if Rayner had some added incentive to show the Cowboys just how capable a kicker he is on Sunday.
