Moats spent the last four seasons with the Buffalo Bills after being selected in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He started 12 games as Buffalo's weakside linebacker in 2013, finishing with 54 tackles. Primarily known as an early-down run-stuffer, the 26-year-old Moats becomes a logical companion with Lawrence Timmons in the Steelers' starting lineup.

Vince Williams and Sean Spence will also be in the mix for playing time at the position. The Steelers released Foote earlier this month, ending the veteran's long relationship with the team.
