Upon release, Moorman sends letter to Bills fans

For 12 of the past 13 years, whenever the Buffalo Bills failed to convert on a third down and needed to flip the field on the opposition, the man they turned to was punter Brian Moorman. Following a brief second stint with the team, Moorman was released by the Bills on Friday afternoon.

Amongst fan favorites over the past decade, Moorman shared his appreciation for both the city of Buffalo and Bills fans after his release was announced. The punter issued a letter to fans everywhere on his personal Twitter account: Moorman, 38, had a averaged 43.8 yards per punt over the course of the past 13 seasons. He was with the Bills from 2001 through the start of the 2012 season before being initially released. He was brought back in 2013 after the team's first five games and served as Buffalo's punter for the rest of the season.

With out a viable option at punter I have a feeling we will see Moorman back after they get done with their cuts and final roster.

A class act on and off the field. Exemplifies all of the professional and personal qualities you hope for in any player on your team as a fan.

hey Brian!!!
don't end the lease on your apartment here yet- the Bills might need you back like last year?- they have no clue on doing what makes sense for the good of the team- you are one of the "Character" guys the Bills need on this team - Good Luck wherever you sign with

Let's be the first NFL team to retire a Punter's jersey
Who's with me?

By far
One of the best bills, performance wise and otherwise of the past 12 years. My buddy had your jersey and we were all a bit jealous. I remember Moorman running a guy down and ended up tackling him and getting an unnecessary roughness... That's right,the punter! When it felt that few guys even cared Moorman lways did.... The punter! Brian you are not only my favorite punter of the past 25 years you are one of my favorite Bills, period. Thanks for bailing us out.

In the days of disappointing character and behavior from "pro athletes", this guy is a true class act.

A true bill.
Boy times show dose fly when you are having fun. It will be hard to watch games without seeing moorman. When we need him to keep us in games he always came through. Thankyou bro for the memories its like the other comments said. You will truley be miss goodluck with another team. But the way you wrote your letter to us. Sounds like you might retire; if you do please do it as a bill Because the wall is where you belong.
