Buffalo Bills punter Brian Moorman - a well-regarded player who held that position for more than a decade - was released on Tuesday. Four Bills players took to their Twitter accounts to react to the news.
When news of the release broke, the two players that provided instant reactions in line with the thoughts of fans were running back Fred Jackson and linebacker Nick Barnett.
@Fred22Jackson: WTF??? Released Mooreman??? For What??
@NickBarnett: Wow we released Moorman?? Wow
Eric Wood, the team's starting center, was asked by a fan for his reaction to the news.
@EWood70: very tough saying bye to a good friend today. I wish him nothing but the best
And, when C.J. Spiller woke up from his Tuesday afternoon nap and heard the news a bit later, he wrapped up the player reactions we're privy to quite nicely.
@CJSPILLER: Just woke up from a great nap but to learn the sad news that we release Moorman he was def a great teammate but even better person.
