ORCHARD PARK, NY - On Sunday the Buffalo Bills announced the re-signing of former punter Brian Moorman.

Moorman spent his first 12 seasons with the Bills before being released early in 2012. He holds franchise records for gross punting average (43.9), punts inside the 20 (243) and total punts (862), and he was selected to the NFL Pro Bowl following the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Buffalo cut Moorman after its third game last year.

On Friday, the day after after losing a game televised in prime time to the Cleveland Browns, the Buffalo Bills released punter Shawn Powell. Powell averaged 46.1 yards per punt this year. Bills head coach Doug Marrone cited a lack of hang time as one of the reasons the Bills decided to move on from Powell.

The Bills said in a statement released Sunday morning that Moorman's 265 punts inside the 20 since the 2001 season are tied for second among active NFL punters.  

Moorman spent the rest of the 2012 season with the Dallas Cowboys and training camp in 2013 with the Pittsburgh Steelers before being released prior to the regular season.

On Sunday, Moorman tweeted a picture of Ralph Wilson Stadium and the message, "Great to be home."
