Earlier this week, the Indianapolis Colts cut starting inside linebacker Sio Moore. Today, Moore found a new team as he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Colts cut him just four games into the 2016 season after three bad games in a row, and the move came as quite a surprise. Moore led the team in tackles through four games (with 30), while he also recorded two tackles. Again, he wasn’t playing well for much of the first quarter of the season, but it was still a surprise to see him cut outright this week. The Colts originally sent a sixth round pick to the Raiders shortly before the 2015 season for Moore, and last year he played in 12 games with Indianapolis and recorded 13 tackles.
Moore now has another shot as he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, and he’ll have some time to get adjusted to his new situation, too, as the Chiefs are on a bye this week. In a few weeks, however, he’ll face his former team as the Chiefs host the Colts in week eight, on October 30. Moore’s first game with the Chiefs, however, will be against his first NFL team, the Oakland Raiders. It remains to be seen what role Moore will have with the Chiefs, but it’s nice to see him get another shot - and the Colts will see him again in a few weeks.
