Could the Patriots move for Tony Moeaki?

After the Patriots release of Aaron Hernandez, who has been accused of murder, a new tight end is on the agenda for the New England side. Although a host of names have been touted as Hernandez's possible replacement, the name of Tony Moeaki has been mentioned as a possible addition for the Patriots.

With the Patriots' huge fanbase, a new section online has been compiled on Hernandez and the astounding alleged offences pending against him. The Pats are certainly now going to need to sign a replacement before the season starts, with Moeaki on the cards potentially.

Moeaki was drafted by the Chiefs back in 2010, and the tight end scored a touchdown in his first game for the franchise, taking a two-yard pass in a game against San Diego Chargers. The former Iowa Hawkeyes man started to make his impact felt in Kansas City, but suffered an ACL injury that sidelined him for the entirety of the 2011 campaign.

Moeaki returned for last season, and in total has amassed 80 receptions for 1,009 yards and four touchdowns in 30 career games for the Chiefs. He is currently entering his last year of the contract with Kansas City, and although he has shown glimpses of what he is capable of, there is a feeling that he has not lived up to his potential for the franchise.

There are other names in the frame to replace Hernandez including Jake Ballard, Michael Hoomanawanui, Daniel Fells, Zach Sudfeld and Brandon Ford. However with Moeaki's time at Kansas City not necessarily living up to what the Chiefs fans would have hoped for, it may not be a bad thing if he was to move to New England ahead of the new season.

It is obvious that the 26-year-old has ability and talent, but on this occasion it is just one of those deals that has not thoroughly worked out for the player or team.
