Report by @alexmarvez on Bucs signing Lindell surely means they're going to IR Lawrence Tynes, who has been dealing with a toe injury.

Think he's still got a couple years left of solid kicking. But his leg is preeeeeetty much gone. If you're relying on anything past 42-44 yards consistently, you're in trouble.

Good for Lindell. He's more of a middle of the pack kicker but still he should do well for Tampa.

He is probably closer to the bottom of the pack at this stage in his career. On kickoffs he struggles to get the ball within 5 yards into the endzone. Anything past 45 yards we couldn't attempt a FG because he doesn't have the leg anymore. He is accurate but Lindell will fusterate some fans with his lack of leg strength.
