Tony Moeaki a productive TE when healthy, which isn't often

By Tim Graham

Three days after tight end Scott Chandler fumbled in overtime, the Buffalo Bills have signed Tony Moeaki.

Moeaki, the Kansas City Chiefs' third-round draft choice in 2010, is a productive tight end when healthy. But he seems to be hurt more than he's active.

Moeaki broke his shoulder in the preseason. The Chiefs released him from injured reserve in October and has been a free agent. The Bills had an opening after they cut running back Tashard Choice.

Moeaki battled a slew of injuries at the University of Iowa (broken hand, dislocated elbow, wrist surgery, foot surgeries). But he caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns as a Chiefs rookie.

He missed the 2011 season with a torn left knee ligament that preseason. He returned last year to post 33 receptions for 453 yards and a touchdown.
