After 12 years in the NFL, all punting for the Bills, Brian Moorman was abruptly cut last week. A day later he signed with the Cowboys, but he’s not turning his back on Buffalo.
With the Cowboys off this week, Moorman traveled back in Buffalo on Friday to honor commitments he had made to visit a children’s hospital and to visit a school where students had raised money for charities that help pediatric cancer patients.
“I didn’t ever think I’d be wearing a Cowboys jersey when I came to speak to them. We had talked about setting this up before any of that happened,” Moorman told the Buffalo News. “I intended to come up here and speak as a Buffalo Bill and now I’m speaking as a Dallas Cowboy. Whether I’m there two weeks or the rest of the season, I don’t know, but that’s life. I’ve decided that I’m going to respond to this in a positive way. I’m trying not to look back.”
No player wants to get cut in the middle of the season, but Moorman has handled it in about as classy a manner as possible.
