Report: Seahawks worked out tight end Tony Moeaki

Nov 4, 2014, 2:19 PM | Updated: 3:31 pm

The Seahawks were reportedly looking for tight ends before the trade deadline, and it appears they might have added one a few weeks later.

The National Football Post reported Tuesday that the team brought in Tony Moeaki for a workout at an unspecified time, and that it “went well.” At about the same time as the report came out, Moeaki retweeted a pair of Tweets congratulating him on signing with Seattle. One was from former NFL player Harvey Unga.

The Seahawks have not made any announcement.

Moeaki, 27, was a third-round pick by Kansas City in 2010. He caught 47 passes as a rookie, missed his second season following an ACL tear and then returned with an 33-catch season in 2012. He appeared in two games with Buffalo last year after being waived with an injury designation by the Chiefs.

Moeaki hasn’t played this season.

The Seahawks have been without their starting tight end, Zach Miller, for the last five games following ankle surgery. Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Miller has yet to begin running on the ground, an indication that he’s likely still at least a few weeks away from returning.
