The Bills signed Vizcaino to the practice squad Saturday. Vizcaino will add organizational depth at kicker behind starter Tyler Bass. A Washington product, Vizcaino has played just one game since entering the league in 2018, connecting on all three field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries for San Francisco.
Vizcaino worked out for the Bills on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Tyler Bass is the only kicker under contract with the Bills. With the continued uncertainty regarding COVID-19, Vizcaino could serve as the emergency backup while the Bills compete for their first Super Bowl championship. Vizcaino played in one game during the 2020 season, connecting on all three field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries for the 49ers.
Vizcaino reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. An undrafted free agent in 2018, Vizcaino finally made his NFL debut in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Seahawks. The Washington product put together a perfect outing, connecting on all three field-goal attempts, including a 47-yarder, and both extra-point tries. This was a solid tryout for Vizcaino, so he could get some looks this offseason.
San Francisco signed Vizcaino from the Vikings' practice squad Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Vizcaino could be called upon to make his NFL debut Sunday against Seattle, as he finds himself as the only kicker on the 49ers' active roster after Robbie Gould was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. The 24-year-old previously saw action with the Bengals in the 2019 preseason, converting all three of his extra-point tries while going 4-for-7 on field-goal attempts.
The Vikings cut Vizcaino from the practice squad Tuesday. The Vikings likely will bring in another kicker to add depth behind Dan Bailey, who has been flaky of late. Vizcaino has yet to make his NFL debut since entering the league in 2018.
