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.
