East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Giants signed kicker David
Buehler to a reserve/future contract on Wednesday, with the former Dallas
Cowboy expected to compete for a job in training camp.
Buehler led the NFL with 29 touchbacks on 76 attempts as a rookie kickoff
specialist with the Cowboys in 2009, then served as Dallas' primary
placekicker the following season. He made 24-of-32 field goals with a long of
53 yards while going 42-of-44 on point-after tries.
The 2009 fifth-round draft choice was beaten out by Dan Bailey for
placekicking duties in 2011, but handled kickoffs for four games before being
placed on injured reserve in November. He was released with a failed physical
designation by Dallas this past March.
