Former Steelers LB Arthur Moats Retires



Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats took to social media to officially call his playing days over early Monday morning, officially retiring from the National Football League.

Moats, drafted out of James Madison in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills, spent four seasons in Buffalo before signing with Pittsburgh in 2014. Moats never cracked the starting rotation regularly, but proved himself to be a solid backup and pivotal special teams player through his three seasons in Pittsburgh.

Moats spent the last season of his career in Arizona, but unfortunately ended up on injured reserve before the 2018 season began and ultimately was released before touching the field as a Cardinal.

Moats finished with 228 career tackles, 16.5 sacks, six passes defended, four forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
