The Buffalo Bills have announced that the franchise has re-signed K Rian Lindell. The deal is reportedly a four-year contract worth $11 million dollars. Lindell finished the 2011 regular season with a career low 64 total points, but Lindell only appeared in 8 contests for the Buffalo Bills this season while dealing with a shoulder injury.
Lindell, 35, has spent 12 seasons in the NFL, eight of which spent with the Buffalo Bills. He started his career with the Seattle Seahawks. Lindell has an 80.9 percent career average and a career long 56-yard field goal (2009).
Lindell told reporters that he is happy to return to the Buffalo Bills and he likes the familiarity with the players on the team. “I like all the people in the organization, just from when you first walk in the door- I know everybody. I’m familiar with everybody and comfortable. The snap and the hold with Garrison (Sandborn) coming back and Brian (Moorman) back- they’re as good as anybody in what they do. I like the coaches and I just like the organization,” said Lindell.
