Dallas Cowboys sign former Buffalo Bills punter Brian Moorman

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Cowboys signed punter Brian Moorman this afternoon, with Chris Jones not at practice on Wednesday.

The Dallas Cowboys have signed punter Brian Moorman, according to Nick Eatman of DallaCowboys.com. Moorman was released by the Buffalo Bills this morning, a move that was not very popular with the team's veterans judging by their outspoken tweets this morning.

The Cowboys signed Chris Jones to a three-year, $1.4 million contract extension in the offseason after allowing Mat McBriar to enter free agency. Jones, who started 2011 on the practice squad, has stepped into the role as the starting punter for the Cowboys admirably, and currently ranks fourth in the NFL with a 44.4-yard net average, while pinning 5-of-11 punts inside the opposing team's 20-yard line.

Jones, however, was not at practice today for the Cowboys. Moorman was in Dallas this morning for a workout soon after being released.

Moorman was in his twelfth season as the Buffalo Bills punter, with a 32.7-yard net average this season. He was 2-of-15 on punts inside the 20.
