Tynes spent the last six seasons with the New York Giants, building his reputation as a clutch kicker, especially in the playoffs.
Tynes is the first kicker in league history to have two game-winning, overtime kicks in the post-season and was on both of the Giants’ most recent Super Bowl teams – 2007 and 2011.
