Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth will miss the season after tearing his Achilles tendon, the team announced Wednesday on Twitter. Tampa Bay signed veteran Lawrence Tynes to take his place.
Barth made 28 of 33 field goal attempts last season, including six of nine from 50 yards or more. He's spent the past four seasons with Tampa Bay.
BURKE: Bears wisely wait before committing long term to Jay Cutler Tynes, 35, made 33 of 39 attempts with the Giants last season. He was second in the NFL in scoring.
