Moorman set to hold for Carpenter

Each NFL kicker is different in their preference for how the ball is tilted and positioned. Bills punter Brian Moorman, now back with the club, spent part of the week making sure he’s got his place kick holds just the way that kicker Dan Carpenter likes them.

“Every kicker is a little bit different, but Dan is extremely laid back and just said put the ball down and lean it a little towards you and straight up, but he’s pretty easy going so it was pretty seamless this week,” said Moorman. “He made all his kicks on Wednesday so I guess the holds were okay.”

The front end of the snapping operation will be old hat for Moorman. He worked with long snapper Garrison Sanborn since the 2009 season before he was released early last year.

Moorman also works with Sanborn in the offseason as the two live about 15 minutes away from each other in the Jacksonville, Florida area.

“It’s been a pretty good transition and I’ve worked with Garrison all offseason so I’m comfortable catching snaps from him,” Moorman told “I know what kind of velocity he has so it felt like I never left.”
