Cowboys Sign Punter Brian Moorman

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Dallas Cowboys made a surprising move by signing punter Brian Moorman, who was just released by the Buffalo Bills. Chris Jones was injured against Tampa Bay, and his status is unknown at this time.

In an unexpected move, the Dallas Cowboys have reportedly signed punter Brian Moorman. Moorman is a long time veteran punter who was just released by the Buffalo Bills.

(Buffalo head coach Chan) Gailey said the decision to release Moorman came down strictly to dropping production. The most tenured player on the team was let go based primarily on the fact that he ranked 30th in the league in net punting average, though after just three games, it seemed like a rather hasty move to make.

Moorman, who also was the holder for place kicks, is a 12-year veteran. The move was apparently spurred by an injury to Dallas punter Chris Jones. He was not practicing today because of the hit on him that resulted in a roughing the punter penalty against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second quarter of the Cowboys' win that was just revealed on Wednesday.

There is no word at the time this is written on Jones' status, or what roster moves might be made to open a spot for Moorman. We will have any further news on this as it develops.
