The final player is one that a contract extension doesn’t necessarily create much cap space but is a player that the Buffalo Bills want to make sure doesn’t leave after the season. Tyler Bass was drafted in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft and has become one of the better placekickers in the league.
Bass would win a position battle with Stephen Hauschka prior to his rookie season and be the starting kicker over the past three years. He has seemingly gotten better each year and saw his field goal percentage improve from 82% as a rookie to 87% over the past two seasons. During his time in Buffalo, he would tie the franchise record twice with the most field goals made in a game with six.
He also has been almost nearly perfect on extra point attempts after making 156 out of a possible 160 career extra point attempts.
The Buffalo Bills shouldn’t wait long to sign Tyler Bass to an extension and make sure they have their kicker in place for the foreseeable future.
