He’s the first Colts player to reportedly make such a decision to sit out the season.
Signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2018, the 6’2”, 225 pound linebacker has appeared in 10 career games (1 start), recording 4 tackles the past two seasons.
Moore presumably faced a tough battle to make the Colts active roster as a linebacker lower on the depth chart—as Indianapolis has a number of players at his position competing—including Matthew Adams, Zaire Franklin, rookie Jordan Glasgow, and E.J. Speed among current projected backups.
It’s unclear whether Moore is a ‘higher risk’ player, but either way, one has to respect his decision—as in his eyes, he prioritizes his personal health over playing football in 2020.
