The Buffalo Bills are done with one old Jets international punter and are signing… another international ex-Jets punter. The team announced on Wednesday that punter Lachlan Edwards was added to the roster.
In a corresponding move, punter Kaare Vedvik (born in Norway) was released by the team after only three days of full training camp practice. On Tuesday the Bills had worked out Edwards along with former Falcons punter Matt Bosher, according to the NFL’s daily workout log.
Edwards, a seventh-round pick of the Jets in 2016, spent the past four seasons with Gang Green. He’s averaged 45.5 yards per punt. The 29-year-old is a native of Australia. Edwards and Vedvik were teammates together with the Jets for a short time in last season.
Edwards will join the Bills looking to beat the team’s incumbent punter Corey Bojorquez for the team’s starting spot. Bojorquez, a left-footed kicker, has played for the Bills since 2018.
