Arthur Moats (chest) was forced from action before halftime against Denver on Sunday.
Moats collected 35 tackles (24 solo), including four sacks in 2015. He also added two fumble recoveries. After recording only five sacks over four seasons in Buffalo, Moats finally seems to have discovered his pass rushing skills, totaling eight sacks in just two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers . Although he may not do enough defensively to warrant consideration in IDP leagues, Moats is an integral part of a Pittsburgh defensive unit that held opponents to under 20 points per game, and finished third in the league with 48 sacks.
Arthur Moats collected six tackles (all solo), including a sack and a fumble recovery in Pittsburgh's win over Cleveland on Sunday.
Moats sacked Austin Davis in the second quarter for his fourth sack of 2015, matching a single-season career high (2014). He also recovered a fumble forced by Lawrence Timmons in the fourth quarter, his second defensive fumble recovery this season, a new single-season career high, and the fourth of his NFL career.

The Steelers announced it's a three-year deal.
"I love this organization," said Moats. "Even though I was only here for one year, from top to bottom it’s been a great experience."
Moats totaled 23 tackles with four sacks and two forced fumbles in all 16 games last year.
"I would love to get something done sooner rather than later here. I love it here, my family loves it here."
