Buffalo Bills sign Jake Dombrowski as Brian Moorman competition

Buffalo's hand-picked competitor for veteran punter Brian Moorman: a former Harvard punter by the name of Jake Dombrowski.

The Buffalo Bills added camp competition for veteran punter Brian Moorman on Wednesday, signing Jake Dombrowski to an undisclosed deal.

Dombrowski did hit punting collegiately at Harvard, where over his four-year career he averaged 39.9 yards per punt, earning All-Ivy League honors as a senior. The 6'1", 190-pound athlete was an undrafted free agent last year, and spent the year out of the NFL after a spring tryout with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Moorman, 38, was re-signed to a one-year deal back in January. Assuming the punting depth chart stays the same, he will enter training camp as the favorite to remain the Bills' punter for at least one more year. Buffalo undoubtedly has a more interesting training camp battle at kicker, where veteran Dan Carpenter - re-signed last month to a four-year deal worth just under $10 million - will try to hold off 2013 sixth-round pick Dustin Hopkins, a Florida State product that likely would have held the job last season had he not been injured.
