On a day where the Colts lost starting safety Melvin Bullitt for the season, the respond by going out and signing... a receiver?
Steve Reed at Carolina Growl Tweets the news that the Colts have signed wide receiver Kenneth Moore. Moore caught on with the Panthers in 2008 after being cut from the Lions (who drafted him in the 5th Round that year). SB Nation's Lions blog, Pride of Detroit, did a scouting report on Moore at the time:
When this pick was first made, it was a head-scratcher to say the least. On top of the fact that the Lions had just picked a wide receiver, we all wondered why they had done so at the start of the fifth-round. It's not like Detroit had a huge need for an additional receiver, so why did the Lions make this selection? Basically, Detroit wanted to add someone with the ability to play receiver and then also be a return man, and that sums up Kenneth Moore.
What this does not sound good for is Devin Moore, the Colts starting kick returner who was injured this past Sunday in the Colts 31-28 loss to the Jaguars.
Moore played his college ball at Wake Forest, where current Colts head coach Jim Caldwell was the head man from 1993-2000.
