–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has released P Brian Moorman and signed free agent P Shawn Powell. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Powell re-joins the team after being released prior to the regular season. The 6-4, 243-pound Florida State product signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent following April’s NFL Draft.
–The Buffalo Bills officially unveiled Nike throwback jerseys yesterday during the PLAY 60 Kickoff Event at Kleinhans Music Hall. Over 2,500 local elementary school students attended the event which featured a number of Bills Players and personnel.
The 2012 throwback Nike jerseys are white with red and blue stripes; blue lettering with red outlining. The jersey is modeled after the uniform that the Bills wore during their 1965 AFL Championship season. The throwback jersey will be worn by Bills players during the December 9th game vs. the St. Louis Rams at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The throwback jersey will be worn in combination with the traditional Bills white helmet featuring the Red Standing Buffalo. The Bills last wore a white throwback jersey during the AFL 50th anniversary season in 2009.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix
On what he saw from P Shawn Powell in training camp and what he expects going forward:
“The upside is really good on this guy. He is a big man, which I think helps punters. He’s got good height and he is a 240-pounder. He’s got a very strong leg and tremendous hang time. The guy is Florida State’s all-time leading punter. We really liked him. In fact, we even considered drafting him late last year. The upside is really good on the guy.”
