Colts linebacker Sio Moore was arrested in Indianapolis on Thursday evening for reckless driving, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (via TheIndyChannel.com). An officer said the 25-year-old was weaving in and out of traffic while driving at least 100 miles per hour.
Moore, a third-round pick in 2013, spent his first two season with the Raiders, where he started 22 of 26 games. The linebacker was traded to the Colts in September for a sixth-round pick in the 2016 draft, and he ended up playing in 12 games for Indy. The former UConn standout finished 2015 with 13 tackles, and he’s compiled 153 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and a pair of forced fumbles in his three-year career.
Moore will be entering the final season of his four-year, $3MM rookie contract. The linebacker is set to make just over $700K next season, but if the Colts want to move on from him, they can easily cut bait, as the contract won’t leave any dead money — that dead money remains on Oakland’s cap.
