ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Bills cut 10 players Thursday, including QB Jordan Palmer, who was just signed Tuesday, and veteran punter Brian Moorman.
The cuts were made to reduce the team’s roster to 62 ahead of the 53-man deadline.
Moorman, who was re-signed to the Bills in October 2013 after spending a year away from the team, said goodbye to fans on the Buffalo Bills Twitter feed. He spent 12 seasons with the team, and jokes that though for the first two years, fans called him “Chris” after Chris Mohr, the former Bills punter, he says, “The people of Buffalo and WNY are proud, generous, stubborn and layol, and once they put their arms around you, you’re friends for life.”
He thanked fans as well as the staff at Women and Children’s Hospital and Roswell Park, who have worked with his P.U.N.T. Foundation, which Moorman created in 2004 to make a difference in the lives of children who are fighting cancer. He says his goal is to continue this charity.
Moorman ended his letter by saying, “…I can truly tell you that wherever the road takes us, we will always consider ourselves members of trhe Buffalo Bills family.”
Sources tell News 4 the Bills plan on bringing punter Drew Butler in for a workout.
