That was defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt's view on Tuesday, when assessing his linebacker rotation in preparation for Buffalo's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins on Thursday.||||||| Moats is not only competing with Kirk Morrison for the strong-side position, he just might have the edge on the eighth-year veteran, Wannstedt said.
