The Buffalo Bills announced Thursday that they’ve released K Stephen Hauschka and waived P Lachlan Edwards.
This, of course, means that Tyler Bass is the Bills’ placekicker for the 2020 season.
Hauschka, 35, originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent back in 2008. He bounced around a bit with the Ravens, Falcons, Lions and Broncos before he was eventually claimed off of waivers by the Seahawks in 2011.
Hauschka spent the next six seasons in Seattle, but was replaced in 2015 after they elected to sign Blair Walsh to a contract. Hauschka later signed a three-year, $8.85 million deal with the Bills.
Buffalo signed him to a two-year, $8 million extension last year.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Hauschka will free up $2,175,000 of available cap space while creating $875,000 in dead money.
In 2019, Hauschka appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and converted 22 of 28 field goal attempts (78.6 percent) to go along with 30 of 32 extra point tries (93.8 percent).
