Arians spent less than one season as the field goal kicker for the Buffalo Bills in 2001, signing with the team as an undrafted free agent that summer to replace longtime kicker Steve Christie, who was among the numerous players who joined the San Diego Chargers in the "Bills West" exodus. (Arians did not handle kickoffs, which were handled by punter Brian Moorman.) Arians beat out Jay Taylor for the open position. Due to several missed field goals and a missed extra point, Arians was released near the end of the 2001 season and was replaced by Shayne Graham, after which he never returned to professional football.
