Brian Moorman Drawing Interest From Dallas Cowboys, Per Report

Per Tim Graham of The Buffalo News, former Buffalo Bills punter Brian Moorman may be on the verge of agreeing to terms on a contract with the Dallas Cowboys. For now, he's simply in Big D for a workout.

@ByTimGraham: I've been told former Bills punter Brian Moorman is in Dallas to work out for the Cowboys and may already be close to signing.

Right now, the Cowboys employ a punter by the name of Chris Jones, a second-year player out of Carson-Newman that spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad. Upon promoting him to the active roster late last season, the Cowboys promptly handed Jones a three-year, $1.4 million contract, implying that he'd be the punter for the foreseeable future.

Jones currently ranks fourth in the NFL with a 44.4-yard net punting average, and has pinned five of his 11 boots inside the opponents' 20-yard line. Those are two areas that Moorman has struggled in; he's got a 32.7-yard net average at the moment, and is 2-of-15 in pinning kicks inside the 20-yard line.
