David Buehler K NYG 7 Months
Free agent K David Buehler will work out for the Bucs on Thursday.
The Bucs will be bringing in several other free agent kickers for the tryout Thursday, but Buehler is the only known name at the moment. Recently released veterans Dan Carpenter and Rian Lindell may also get invites. Lawrence Tynes is dealing with a toe injury, and the Bucs "aren't sold on" Derek Dimke.

Giants signed K David Buehler.
Buehler was out of the league in 2012, and is just 24-of-32 lifetime on field-goal attempts. He has a very big leg, however. There's an outside chance Buehler earns the Giants' kicking job, but they should end up re-signing free agent Lawrence Tynes.

Cowboys waived K David Buehler.
A Jerry Jones favorite as a 2009 fifth-rounder, Buehler's stock dropped last season due to right hip surgery and the emergence of Dan Bailey. Under the NFL's new kickoff rules, Buehler's country-strong, but erratic leg doesn't carry as much value. The Cowboys were not going to pay his elevated $1.26 million salary.

Escalators have pushed Cowboys K David Buehler's 2012 salary from $565,000 to $1.26 million.
It's a lot to pay a kickoff specialist coming off hip surgery. Buehler has been a Jerry Jones favorite since Dallas drafted him in the 2009 fifth round, but he's become expendable after Dan Bailey nailed 32-of-37 field goal tries as a rookie in 2011. Buehler seems likely to be waived before the season.

Cowboys K David Buehler (injured reserve, groin) had right hip surgery Tuesday.
The hip surgery is reportedly unrelated to the groin issue that landed Buehler on IR. He's expected to be medically cleared for the entire offseason program, but will have to fight for his job. Dan Bailey was piping hot before two straight critical misses the last two weeks.

Cowboys kickoff specialist David Buehler landed on injured reserve due to a torn adductor muscle in his right groin.
The injury left a bruise a deep shade of purple after Buehler was forced from practice. "I was, 'wow, it's not supposed to look like this,'" Buehler said. "This stinks." It's an aggravation of an early-season injury and is expected to take a minimum of five weeks to heal.

Cowboys placed K David Buehler (groin) on injured reserve, ending his season.
It was no longer feasible for the Cowboys to carry both Buehler and Dan Bailey on the roster. And with Bailey 20-of-21 on the year, the decision was easy. The Cowboys, who are infatuated with Buehler's big leg, will likely give him another chance to battle for the job next season.

Cowboys declared declared K David Buehler, QB Stephen McGee, FB Tony Fiammetta, G David Arkin, G Derrick Dockery, DE Jason Hatcher, and DE Clifton Geather inactive for Week 6 at New England.
Tony Romo is expected to take another pain-killing shot while wearing a kevlar vest to protect his ribs. After putting in full practices all week, Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, and Felix Jones are as close to 100 percent as they've been in nearly a month.
