Bills sign Tony Moeaki

The Chiefs released tight end Tony Moeaki off of injured reserve in October, leaving him free to sign with any other team in the league that wanted to bring him on board.

He’s availed himself of that option and joined the Bills. Buffalo announced Wednesday afternoon that they’ve signed a player whose four NFL seasons have been a mixture of promising play and serious injuries.

Moeaki had 47 catches for 556 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie in 2010, but his second season was wiped out by a knee injury in the preseason. He returned last year to catch 33 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown and then hurt his shoulder this August. That led to injured reserve and to the Chiefs deciding to move in a different direction.

There’s sure to be some rust after months off the field, but those 80 catches over two seasons make Moeaki worth a look over the next few weeks for a Bills team thinking about 2014 and beyond.

  1. This guy made a couple circus grabs his rookie year in KC which in turn made the delusional kc fanbase declare him the next Tony Gonzalez and it was all downhill from there.

    Here’s to a fresh new start

  2. Tony has some Very Good ability and can play well when healthy. Unfortunately, he is healthy very little of the time. He misses a lot of games and seems to be injured easily. I hope things work out for him though.

  3. I really like this guy. Was pissed when KC let him go. He has been hurt alot, but always tried to rush back befor allowing himself to get 100%. Next TG probably not but possibly a gates. And unlike tony this guy can block.good pick up Bills…

  4. when healthy he’s an athletic hybrid type of TE with speed and great hands. when healthy that is….which is kinda rare. his body is like peanut brittle, but peanut brittle that can run and catch. good luck tony!

  5. I like Tashard Choice and all but his release allows this signing. Well worth a look for what it costs and just want to say thank you to Tashard.
    Could save us a draft pick IF the guy can stay in one piece.
