The Western Star - - SPORTS -

It didn’t take Jon Ryan long to find a new home.

The Buf­falo Bills an­nounced Tues­day that they have signed the Regina-born punter to a one-year con­tract. The move comes a day af­ter the Seat­tle Sea­hawks re­leased Ryan af­ter 10 sea­sons.

Ryan was among the most pop­u­lar Sea­hawks play­ers for his skill as a punter and his per­son­al­ity off the field. But his time in Seat­tle ap­peared to be up when Michael Dick­son was se­lected in the fifth round of this year’s draft.

Ryan signed with Seat­tle in 2008, af­ter two sea­sons with the Green Bay Pack­ers. He be­gan his pro ca­reer with the CFL’s Win­nipeg Blue Bombers (2004-05). Ryan was a CFL all-star in 2005 and earned a Su­per Bowl ring with Seat­tle fol­low­ing the team’s 43-8 win over Denver on Feb. 2, 2014.
