Buffalo Bills: What can Tony Moeaki add?


The Buffalo Bills added TE free agent Tony Moeaki after releasing Tashard Choice.

Buffalo has made a couple of moves at the H-Back/TE spot this year and seem to be looking for a change in production overall.  Scott Chandler becoming a free agent at the end of the year may see his last season as a Bill.

Tony Moeaki was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010 in the 3rd round.  Moeaki was expected to be an up and coming TE in the league.  He has seen his fair share of injuries though but still seems to have some fight in him.

Moeaki really has only played 2 season in the NFL with a stint on the IR in 2011 and also this year.  In 2 years, 2010 and 2012, he was able to provide the Chiefs with a little bit of offense catching 80 balls and bringing in just over 1000 yards receiving.  With those 80 receptions, 4 of them were touchdowns.

If Moeaki can stay healthy, he could add another dimension to the Bills and another target for E.J. Manuel.  With two receiving TE on the roster, Chandler and Moeaki, there is another option for E.J. and the Bills offense.

After this season, if Chandler is not brought back, which I doubt he will be, will Rodriguez be big enough to step into a TE role or will Gragg be able to step into a hybrid role and add a threat to the offensive scheme.  These questions will be answered in due time but I don’t think at week 14 they will be.

Another option is the Bills keep Chandler and Moeaki as their 1-2 TE combo as well as Gragg and get rid of Smith. The only downfall to this is that Smith is the better blocking TE out of all the TEs but a question the Bills will have to answer is do they want a blocking TE, a recieving TE, or a hybrid TE to help out EJ?
