Moeaki, 29, appeared in 11 games with the Falcons last season. The veteran first burst on the scene in 2010 when he caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns. After losing his 2011 season to a torn ACL, Moeaki rebounded in 2012 to catch 33 passes for 453 yards and one score. The former third-round pick has also had stints with the Bills and Seahawks.
After the daft, the Bears have been keeping an eye on the free agent market for tight end depth. In addition to Moeaki, the Bears also worked out former Packers tight end Ryan Taylor and UDFA Terenn Houk. Houk played wide receiver in college, but the Bears asked him to add some weight and focus on his blocking after participating in rookie minicamp. It’s unclear whether Houk or Taylor are still in the mix for a spot on Chicago’s 90-man roster.
