Kicking competition is over for Bills as team cuts rookie Austin Rehkow

The Buffalo Bills made a pair of roster moves Sunday, in the process ending a pair of competitions.

Rookie undrafted free agent Austin Rehkow was released, which makes it seem like the team will go into the 2017 season with Stephen Hauschka at kicker and Colton Schmidt at punter. Rehkow handled both duties in training camp, but both Hauschka and  Schmidt have performed well this summer.

Additionally, the Bills designated tight end Jason Croom as waived/injured. Croom has been out with an ankle injury.

The two open rosters spots were filled by tight end Rory Anderson and safety Adrian McDonald. Anderson is a former seventh-round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2015 who played in college at South Carolina. McDonald was an undrafted free agent signing by the San Diego Chargers in 2016. He spent last year on the Chargers' practice squad, but was released last week. He holds the University of Houston's school record with 17 interceptions.
