Lindell was scheduled to hit free agency next month. The 35-year-old missed eight games due to a shoulder injury in 2011.
Lindell hit 13-of-15 field goal tries before the injury. He has been Buffalo’s kicker since 2003, and figures to retain the job in 2012.
UPDATE: Rodney McKissic of the Buffalo News reports that the deal is worth $3 million annually. The length of Lindell’s contract remains unknown.
