Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - The Buffalo Bills released punter Brian

He holds the highest gross punting average (43.9) and net punting average
(37.6) in team history. The 36-year-old Moorman played in his 179th career
game this past Sunday at Cleveland, good for sixth most in franchise history.
Moorman, who went to the Pro Bowl in 2005 and 2006, has punted the ball 862
times for 37,859 yards in his career.
Powell was released by the Bills prior to the regular season. The Florida
State product signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent following
April's NFL Draft.
He ended his collegiate career as the Seminoles' all-time leader with a 44.2
