Washington Redskins Release Brandon Moore Pending Four Game Suspension


The Washington Redskins made many moves this offseason to bolster a rather thin roster highlighted by the most recent addition of DeSean Jackson.  In the process, the Redskin made a series of more minor moves in hopes of strengthening the special teams unit that let the team down in many key situations.

One of those moves was supposed to be defensive lineman Brandon Moore.  Moore had spent last season on the San Diego Chargers practice squad before being cut from the Kansas City Chiefs and claimed off of waivers by Washington.  Moore’s stint, however, did not start quiet how he liked it after failing the NFL substance abuse policy and being suspended for four games.  Subsequently, the Redskins released Moore and the suspension may prevent Moore from ever playing an NFL snap.

The second year man out of Texas has very limited game film and with the recent suspension very few limited NFL teams will want to test the lineman.  The question I continue to ask myself is when NFL players will begin to finally understand that they have the opportunity of a lifetime by playing in the NFL? They continue to waste what they have by deciding to mess around with drugs.  Brandon Moore, however, is just one of many players caught in the problem surrounding drugs within the NFL.
