The Buffalo Bills are expected to sign soon-to-be-former Seattle Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka to replace Dan Carpenter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday.
Hauschka has been highly accurate, hitting 87.2 percent of his field goals, but he became expendable after the Seahawks signed former Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh.
The Bills released Carpenter Monday.
Hauschka has struggled with extra points, missing 10 in the past two seasons. However, he has an extremely strong leg.
Thursday at 4 p.m. marks the start of the NFL's free-agency period. The Bills already have been busy with Wednesday's signing of former Carolina Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert. They're also expected to sign former Atlanta Falcons fullback Patrick DiMarco and former Baltimore Ravens guard Vlad Ducasse.
