  • Buffalo Bills linebacker Nick Barnett and punter Brian Moorman will sign autographs at Frontier Field prior to the Red Wings’ game on Monday from 6 to 6:50 p.m. The event will take place in the Red Wings’ Hall of Fame. General Manager Dan Mason made the announcement.
    Barnett signed a three-year deal with the Bills prior to the 2011 season after spending his first eight seasons in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers. The 31-year-old registered 130 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and three interceptions last year for Buffalo. Barnett was selected by the Packers in the first round (29th overall) of the 2003 draft after a four-year collegiate career at Oregon State University. He was a part of the Packers’ Super Bowl-winning team in 2010.
    Moorman has spent his entire 11-year NFL career with the Bills, enjoying two Pro Bowl selections in 2006 and 2007. He was also named the punter on the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team. The 36-year-old averaged 48.2 yards a punt in 2011, and 20 were placed inside the 20-yard line. Moorman holds the longest active consecutive games played streak in the NFL for a punter. He also holds the Bills’ franchise record with a career 43.61-yard gross punting average. He has two career touchdown passes to his credit as well.
    The Red Wings on Monday open an eight-game homestand with the first of four games against Durham (Rays). Gametime on Monday is 7:05 p.m. For ticket information, call (585) 423-WING (9464).
