Buffalo Bills' Arthur Moats Moving Back To OLB

It's only been one practice, so it remains to be seen whether the move is permanent. For now, however, Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats is playing on the outside once again.

After making a name for himself as a pass rusher in the latter half of his rookie season - in which he recorded 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and famously ended the consecutive games played streak of Brett Favre - Moats was moved back inside for training camp. It's where he started his NFL career, too, despite playing defensive end at James Madison. Though he's best as a rusher, Buffalo's coaching staff cited his lack of prototypical size as rationale for the move inside.

Buffalo has been experimenting at outside linebacker all year. Alex Carrington, a 305-pound defensive end, began the season there, but has since moved back to end. Spencer Johnson, another 300-pounder, has been playing there for the last two-plus weeks. Now, they're joined by Moats - perhaps to help try to kick-start the team's pass rush.
