Bills place-kicker Rian Lindell, who officially signed his new contract, says that even after 12 years in the NFL, he never dreams about what it would be like to kick in the comfort of a domed stadium.
"A couple weeks ago it was windy and not the best day, and I thought, “this is football weather,'" Lindell told The News today. "This is what it’s supposed to be like, you know what I mean? It’s fun to go out when it’s a little colder and a little windy. A dome is nice. But it’s not football weather, really. It’s best to be in a place where you get that football weather. I kind a like when the snow comes and it gets a little colder."
That's the perfect attitude for a place-kicker for the Bills. Lindell is under contract with Buffalo for another four years. He said this is where he wanted to stay all along.
"I like all the people in the organization, just from when you first walk in the door – I know everybody," he said. "I’m familiar with everybody and I’m comfortable. The snap and the hold with Garrison (Sanborn) 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."
