It has taken punter Brian Moorman no time at all to settle back in with the Buffalo Bills.

He's moved into his old locker. He's got his old No. 8 jersey back, thanks to rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel's gracious offer to switch.

And on Sunday, when Buffalo (2-3) hosts Cincinnati (3-2), Moorman will be back inside Ralph Wilson Stadium dealing with the swirling winds he grew accustomed to mastering during his previous 12-plus-year stint in Buffalo.

It feels like he never left, Moorman said this week after re-signing with the Bills.

The 37-year-old has his old job back a little over a year after being cut by Buffalo. He takes over for Shawn Powell, the punter who replaced him. Powell was cut last week after struggling during a loss at Cleveland.
