In a surprise move the Buffalo Bills have cut one of their 50th anniversary all-time team member, punter Brian Moorman. He is Buffalo’s longest active member signing with the Bills in 2001. He had his best year in 2009 with an average of 46.6 yards per punt. He’s currently in 21st place averaging 45.5 yards but only with a net average of 32.7 yards which is 3rd worse in the league. My guess is at the age of 36 it might be time for a younger punter. In his place is Florida State star rookie Shawn Powell.
In the preseason games this past summer he had 14 punts for the Bills. Five were downed inside the 20 and four others
were fair catches. His stats were respectable in the preseason with a 44.8 gross average and a very good 40.4 net average in four games.
Well rookie… You got some big shoes to fill, but Bills fans will back you up! Just don’t mess up this sunday
Good Luck Moorman and thanks for all the great years. You’ll be missed
