Shawn Powell CIN 5 Months
Bills waived P Shawn Powell.
Powell punted eight times in Thursday night's loss to the Browns, averaging 45.5 yards per punt. He's taking the fall as the Bills' punt-coverage unit allowed Travis Benjamin to average 25.6 yards per return on seven tries. The Bills don't play again for another nine days, so they have time to fill the spot.

Undrafted free agent Shawn Powell is expected to compete with Brian Moorman for the Bills' punting job.
Moorman will be the heavy favorite, but the Bills are serious about giving Powell a shot after he led the nation with a 47.0 average and finished second with a 41.2 net at Florida State last season.
