Sio Moore‘s tenure in Kansas City has ended without him playing a single game. According to Terez A. Paylor of the The Kansas City Star (via Twitter), the Chiefs have waived the veteran linebacker. Moore originally signed with the organization in early October.
It hasn’t been the easiest year for the 26-year-old. Moore was arrested in late January for reckless driving, and he played only four games for the Colts this season before getting cut. The former third-rounder played in 16 games for the Colts between 2015 and 2016, collecting 43 tackles. Prior to his tenure in Indianapolis, Moore was a consistent contributor to the Raiders defense. In two seasons with the team, Moore averaged 70 tackles, nearly four sacks, and one forced fumble per season.
Moore was serving as the team’s fourth inside linebacker, playing behind Ramik Wilson, Derrick Johnson, and D.J. Alexander. Earlier today, the team released linebacker Sam Barrington and promoted linebacker Terrance Smith from the practice squad.
