Moeaki was signed by the Bears on Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Moeaki spent the latter portion of the 2015 season as a member of the Falcons, but never saw much action as he recorded just three catches for 58 yards and a touchdown on five targets throughout 11 games. Moeaki doesn't present much fantasy value at this point with fellow tight ends Zach Miller, Khari Lee, and Rob Housler on the Bears' roster as well.
Moeaki saved his best game for the final game of the season, catching two balls for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Heading into the game, Moeaki had only caught one ball for 11 yards in 11 games with the Falcons. He was signed after Jacob Tamme suffered a concussion, but Tamme returned to the lineup and Moaeki was basically used as a blocker when he saw game action. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he may look for a new home as Tamme is still under contract for another year.
Tight end Tony Moeaki was signed by the Falcons on Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. With Jacob Tamme (concussion) still recovering in the wake of a Week 4 absence, Moeaki could serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Levine Toilolo in Sunday's game against the Redskins. A third-round draft pick back in 2010, Moeaki has struggled with injuries throughout his career, and he no longer possesses the high-end athleticism he had upon entering the league.
The Falcons announced they've signed tight end Tony Moeaki after earlier announcing the signing of tight end Jacob Tamme. Moeaki, 27, played in six games for the Seahawks last season, catching eight passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. He hasn't made a big impact since 2012, when he had 33 grabs for 453 yards and a touchdown with Kansas City. Moeaki and Tamme join Levine Toilolo in Atlanta's tight end group.
Seahawks starting right tackle Justin Britt (knee) and safety Jeron Johnson (elbow) are questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers. Britt missed practice on Wednesday and practiced in full Thursday before participating in a limited fashion Friday. He'll be a gametime decision, and Alvin Bailey will be plugged into the starting lineup if Britt can't go, Pro Football Talk reports. The team had four players listed as probable to face the Packers, including tight end Tony Moeaki (calf), center Max Unger (ankle), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (shoulder) and cornerback Tharold Simon (illness).
