Redskins signed kicker John Potter.

Potter, a seventh-round pick of the Bills last year, is known for his big leg. He'll compete for a role as a kick off specialist in Washington.

Bills seventh-round pick John Potter has a "legitimate chance" to make the team as a kickoff specialist.

Rian Lindell's job as the primary field-goal kicker is safe, but Potter's big leg could earn him a spot on the 53-man roster. Only 27.9 percent of Lindell's kickoffs resulted in a touchback last season, which was sixth-worst in the league.

Bills signed No. 251 overall pick John Potter to a four-year contract.

Western Michigan's all-time leader in points and tackles by a kicker, the big-legged Potter is viewed as a kickoff specialist in Buffalo. Rian Lindell will remain the primary field-goal kicker.

The Bills are projecting seventh-round pick John Potter as a kickoff specialist.

Rian Lindell is locked in as Buffalo's placekicker. Potter will have to show special touchback-making ability to convince the Bills it's worth keeping two kickers. Potter estimated that "43 or 44 percent" of his 2011 kickoffs went through the opponent's end zone. He played his college ball at Western Michigan.

Bills selected Western Michigan K John Potter with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Buffalo signed Rian Lindell to an extension during the winter, so it's not totally clear what they plan to do with Potter. NFL teams don't typically invest draft picks in kickoff specialists. We'll see what happens.
