The Washington Redskins continued to add depth Monday when they were awarded defensive lineman Brandon Moore off of waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs.  The NFL disclosed the waiver wire move to the rest of the League in Monday’s transactions.

Moore, who stands 6’5”, 320 pounds, spent the 2013 season split between the San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos practice squads prior to the Chiefs waving him on Friday.  The 23 year-old had a decorated collegiate career spending time at the University of Alabama, East Mississippi Community College, and University of Texas.

The Chargers were the first team to sign more after the conclusion of the 2013 NFL Draft.  Moore is expected to be yet another big body for the Redskins to employ in their 3-4 defensive scheme, and although he may not have a huge impact in 2014, he will be a player to develop for the Redskins in the future.

Washington will not turn their attention to the NFL Draft where they must prepare to strengthen an improved defense and offensive line.  The Redskins have 6 picks entering the draft and will look to properly utilize each and every one of them.
