Could Buffalo Bills Kicker Rian Lindell’s Career Be Over in Western New York?
For the second straight year, the Buffalo Bills have drafted a kicker. Last year it was John Potter while this year it’s Dustin Hopkins. The difference is pretty clear as Potter was brought in as a kickoff specialist while Hopkins has a booming leg and can kick for accuracy as well. Rian Lindell has been a solid kicker since coming to the Bills a decade ago, however he is now 35 years old and it might be time to go with the youth movement so the team can have one less position to worry about for another decade.
Last season Lindell went 21-24 in field goal attempts, but it seemed like former head coach Chan Gailey would not rely on him for making long range kicks as most of his attempts were under 40 yards which might signal the beginning of the end for him. In a few games the Bills were inside the opponent’s 40 yard line only to punt the ball with then rookie Shawn Powell.
Since 2000, no one has made more field goals than Dustin Hopkins in college football with a total of 88 field goals made. Additionally, Hopkins holds the all-time mark for most points scored in NCAA history.
Also if Hopkins unseats Lindell, that will be just another member of the Florida State Seminoles that have made the Bills team lately and increases the lead for most players from that one school.
