Buffalo Bills Contemplated Brian Moorman Trade In 2011, Per Report

John Wawrow of The Associated Press reported on Wednesday evening that the Buffalo Bills considered trading now-released punter Brian Moorman after the NFL lockout ended in 2011, but eventually passed up the opportunity.

Moorman, released by the Bills on Tuesday, would have been re-united with former Bills special teams coach Danny Smith in Washington had the trade gone through. It's not clear what the Redskins might have offered, but they took the initiative on the discussions, per Wawrow; clearly, Smith was interested in bringing in his former star punter.

Instead, the Bills called off those discussions when they decided that Moorman's experience and leadership were too valuable to lose in a transition year for the team's coverage units. A year later, he was released after just three regular season games.

Moorman signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, where it looks like he'll be a short-term injury fill-in for their very good young punter, Chris Jones.
