The Buffalo Bills had high hopes for tight end Tony Moeaki if he could stay healthy. As they, like teams before them found out, Moeaki just could not keep himself on the field.
The Bills relinquished Moeaki from their official roster on Monday with the announcement that the two parties had come to an injury settlement. The tight end was placed on season-ending Injured Reserve on Friday, which led the team to release him outright to start the practice week.
Moeaki missed four of the team's five preseason games with a hamstring injury and also missed the majority of practice time during training camp at St. John Fisher College as well. After coming to a settlement, Moeaki will be free to sign with any team he chooses as an unrestricted free agent.
The Bills originally signed the tight end in December of 2013.
