I attacked him with 3rd grade math problems. He ran faster than his 4.78 would have predicted.

9 year career, not bad for a sixth round pick in a league where the average career is 3.3 or 6 years (depending on if you ask the NFLPAor NFL.)

Best of luck Arthur!

Give Kiko a break. He was tired from chasing, but never catching, Josh Allen.

He deserves credit for enduring some really ugly uniforms he had to wear -- chiefly those Bills hockey shirts with the blue band across the shoulders and the Steelers bumblebee throwbacks.

Kiko did manage that very dirty leg whip to Josh's dome.

A good friend is a Steelers fan. His daughter was talking about how she loved the steelers once in school. Long story short, Arthur Moats called them because a friend of a friend told him about it and he gave them tickets to a game and joined them for dinner with his wife the next night.

I always liked him, the same way I liked Mo Lewis. Happy trails Arthur!

My kind of underdog story. I was a big fan of his even in Pittsburgh

And according to one site, made $11.4 million over his career.  Now that's REALLY not bad!

I hope he was smart with his money and has the next chapter of his life figured out.

Arthur is a true gentleman and has been a great ambassador for both Buffalo and Pittsburgh. A quiet family man that worked his arse off for everything he earned. Always used his platform to help those less fortunate than himself.

 

I know that retirement is going to be bittersweet for him but I'm sure that Shonda and the kids are happy to have him around all the time. I wish him luck in whatever the future holds.

I came here to post something very similar.  Absolute first-class person that always had a smile on his face.

He bullied me when I was younger so I have a different opinion on him than most.  Granted I should have stood up for myself since I was 16 when he was just 9 but still....very difficult time for me.

Small-school, late round draft pick; flipped a one-year deal, into a multi-million dollar contract playing for one of the historically great defenses, and made it out of the game healthy.

 

That's making the most out of a career. Happy retirement Arthur Moats!
