Brian Moorman will no longer be punting for the Buffalo Bills.

The most senior member of the Buffalo Bills is set to be released by the team. Punter Brian Moorman, a fan-favorite who joined the team in 2001, will be released according to this Jason LaCanfora tweet:

Bills are releasing veteran stalwart P Brian Moorman. Surprise move. Have a feeling he might not be a free agent all that long

— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 25, 2012

Moorman had the best statistical season of his career in 2011 when he finished with an average of 48.2 yards per punt. Moorman is averaging 45.2 yards per punt this season, but his 32.7 net average ranks 30th in the NFL.

The 36-year-old punter will likely receive plenty of looks from other NFL teams looking to upgrade their punting situation. It's a sad end for someone who is beloved by the Bills faithful.

Did the Buffalo Bills make the correct choice in releasing Brian Moorman?

To replace Moorman, the Bills signed Shawn Powell, a punter they had in training camp. Powell was an All-American at Florida State and will begin his professional career on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium against the New England Patriots.
