Bills | Buffalo to have two kickers active

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 15:44:15 -0700

Buffalo Bills PK Dan Carpenter and PK Billy Cundiff will be active for the Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans unless the team needs one of the spots on the active roster for another player, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:36:13 -0700

New York Jets PK Nick Folk no longer has to contend with PK Billy Cundiff, who has since been released. However, Folk will now have to hold off veteran PK Dan Carpenter before the team's final roster cut Saturday, Aug. 31.
