Bills Reunite with Punter Brian Moorman
After an abysmal showing this year by punter Shawn Powell, the Bills released him this past Friday. Who’s to take over over for him? None other than Buffalo’s all-time leading punter, Brian Moorman, according to buffalobills.com.
Moorman was released just a month into the 2012 season after apparently losing the job to Powell. Moorman spent his first 12 seasons in the NFL with Buffalo (2001 – 2012). Moorman currently holds the Bills records in gross punting average (43.9), punts inside the 20 (243) and total punts (862). His 265 punts inside the 20 since the 2001 season are tied for second among active NFL punters. But not only that, Moorman was selected to the Pro Bowl twice (2005/2006).
Moorman was most recently with the Pittsburgh Steelers during the ’13 training camp, and spent the remainder of the 2012 season with the Dallas Cowboys.
As a Bills fan, I whole heartedly welcome Moorman back. I hope you stay for a while, especially seeing as you are fifth all-time in games played for the Bills with 144. Let’s add on to that!
