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.
