89. Chris Mohr – Signed by the Bills in 1991
It’s difficult for a punter to make much of an impact on a football team. He trots on the field, does his job, and departs for a while. At least the good ones hang around for a long period of time. Chris Mohr was a good one.
He was the punter at Alabama in college and was All-SEC as a senior. That led to him taking the job with Tampa Bay in 1989, as he was a sixth-round pick. But his average was under 40 yards per kick and he had two blocks, so the Bucs moved on. Mohr played for the Montreal Machine of the World League in 1990, and tried out for the Bills in 1991.
He became a constant for Buffalo. Mohr averaged more than 40 yards per kick for seven straight years, and stayed through 2000. He became the Bills’ all-time leader at that point in several punting categories. Mohr signed with the Falcons in 2001, and stayed there for four seasons. He came back to Buffalo in 2007 and signed a one-day contract to finish his career in Buffalo.
