Bucs Waive Dimke

Tampa Bay waived former Boylan kicker Derek Dimke Saturday.
Rockford, Illinois-Derek Dimke came closer to making an NFL roster this season, but the former Boylan graduate has missed out again. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived Dimke Saturday.

Dimke made six of seven field goal attempts and three of four extra point attempts during the preseason.  He missed a 45 yard attempt Thursday night while making a 30 yarder against the Redskins.

Dimke was beaten out by 13 year NFL veteran Rian Lindell whom the Bucs just signed ten days ago. Lindell made a 50 yard field goal against the Redskins Thursday to lock up the job. He has made 81.3% of his field goal attempts in his career.

Dimke was cut by the Lions last year.
