The Falcons started the day by signing former Colt and Bronco Jacob Tamme, but they weren’t done adding players to compete with Levine Toilolo for playing time. The team announced that they have also signed former Chief, Bill and Seahawk Tony Moeaki on Thursday afternoon.
Moeki has talent but hasn't been able to stay out of the training room. The Falcons are looking to shore up the TE position and today's signings of Tamme and Moeaki give them a couple of veterans to lean on.

Seahawks TE Tony Moeaki (calf, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 19. Moeaki is considered to be a game-time decision for Saturday. If he’s out, Luke Willson would be more attractive as a Sneaky Start, though he has seen five or more targets just three times this season.

Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. Per the Denver Post, Thomas “ran pass routes during the open viewing session, more activity than he had shown earlier in the week.” But there is “no guarantee” that he returns this week, so owners should get a Plan B ready since the Broncos play in the late round of games. Scott Chandler, Tony Moeaki, Anthony Fasano, Vernon Davis, Mychal Rivera, Tim Wright, Brent Celek, Levine Toiolo or either of the Green Bay tight ends play at the same time as (or later than) Thomas.

Seahawks TE Tony Moeaki was inactive for his first game, but then became an integral part of the offense the past three weeks. He caught a touchdown pass at Kansas City against his former team, holding the ball proudly in the locker room afterward. And he set up a field goal with a 63-yard catch and run Thursday against the 49ers, the Seahawks’ longest play of the season. He was on the field for 41 of 65 snaps in Seattle’s 19-3 win.
He has six catches for 98 yards and also has shown improved pass-blocking, according to Seattle coach Pete Carroll.
Moeaki actually led the team's tight ends in snaps in Week 13. He's not a quality start given Seattle's run-heavy tendencies, but he's a worthwhile dart throw in deep formats.

Seahawks TE Cooper Helfet (ankle, out) did not practice Wednesday. Helfet’s absence will open up more snaps for Tony Moeaki and Luke Willson. Moeaki led the tight ends in snaps in Week 12.

Miller had ankle surgery following a week three win over Denver with the thought he would be back in four-to-six weeks or so.
But Carroll said the ankle never responded and Miller will not be able to play this season.
Carroll says backup tight ends Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet have a chance to play this Sunday at Kansas City despite each battling minor injuries — Willson a sprained ankle and Helfet a banged knee.

Seahawks TE Zach Miller (ankle, out) has been ruled out for Week 10. Luke Willson should get another start, though Seattle signed Tony Moeaki this week.
Russell Wilson has to have someone who can create a mismatch in the red zone. He needs to know he’s got a linebacker matched up against a big target. He needs that second or third read over the middle.
