Chiefs release Tony Moeaki from injured reserve


The Kansas City Chiefs released tight end Tony Moeaki with an injury settlement from injured reserve on Wednesday.

A third-round selection by the Chiefs in 2010, Moeaki was placed on injured reserve in August after fracturing his shoulder. It’s the second time he’d landed on injured reserve in four seasons in Kansas City. He also missed the entirety of the 2011 season with a knee injury.

When he was on the field, Moeaki proved to be a decent receiving option for the Chiefs. He caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie and 33 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown last season. He’s played in 30 games during his tenure in Kansas City.

If Moeaki gets healthy enough to play again this season, he will be free to sign with any team as a free agent.

    I thought he was going to be very good before he tore his ACL. He could still be very useful to a number of teams in need of TEs.

    Even if he can’t play again this season, Ted Thompson is likely going to need to find a replacement for Jermichael Finley. Big bonus if he is able to play this year.

    As a Chiefs fan, I’ll miss Tony, good receiver but just couldn’t stay healthy.

    The TE equivalent of McFadden. Good when on the field but can’t stay 0n-the-field.

    Ability to stay healthy was the big question mark on Moeaki when they drafted him. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, that question has been clearly answered.

    We liked him a lot in KC. Especially after that awesome cath in the end zone on MNF vs San Diego
