Moeaki is known for being a threat in the passing game, as he registered 47 catches, for 556 yards and three touchdowns in his rookie season. However, injuries set him back the last two seasons, and he is now looking for a fresh start in Buffalo

He may just find it.

Chandler has been a large, reliable option for the Bills in recent years, but he is having a rough season this year. Aside from his fumble Sunday, he has dropped his share of passes and has been inconsistent this season. Moeaki might challenge Chandler for playing time.

While this Sunday's game against Tampa Bay may be a little early to insert Moeaki into the lineup, given he would have very limited time to learn the new offense and game plan, the next few weeks of the season will be interesting. Chandler is a big body, so he still has worth in the redzone, but if Moeaki proves to be a more reliable target between the twenties, Chandler could see his role diminished. 

Of course, there's always the chance that the Bills could use more two-tight-end sets, but with Chandler struggling, one can't help but wonder if his role on the team is in trouble.
