Tonawanda News — ORCHARD PARK — The Buffalo Bills have cut little-used veteran running back Tashard Choice.
The team announced the move in a one-sentence release issued on Wednesday before the Bills (4-8) returned to practice to prepare for their game at Tampa Bay (3-9) on Sunday.
Choice is a six-year NFL veteran, who was in his third season in Buffalo. He ranks third on the team with 126 yards rushing behind co-starters C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.
Choice’s best outing came in a 35-17 loss at New Orleans on Oct. 27, when he had seven carries for 35 yards. He also has four catches for 10 yards.
In another move Wednesday, tight end Tony Moeaki will get what’s essentially a four-week tryout in Buffalo to show he’s healthy after being signed by the Bills.
The former Chiefs player has been out since breaking his shoulder in Kansas City’s preseason win over Pittsburgh on Aug. 23. He was then released by the Chiefs after reaching an injury settlement in October.
