Giants add another kicker, insurance if Tynes leaves

The Giants announced Wednesday that they had signed kicker David Buehler, which might mean nothing, but might mean another veteran on his way out the door.

At the moment, they have three kickers on the roster, but Lawrence Tynes is an unrestricted free agent, and they might choose to get younger and cheaper there.

The 26-year-old Buehler began as a kickoff specialist, but kicked field goals in 2010 with the Cowboys. He was out of the league last year after going through hip surgery the previous year.

At the very least, Buehler is an intriguing prospect, and some degree of coverage if Tynes finds greener pastures.
