Moore (6-5, 320) had stints on San Diego and Denverís practice squads in the 2013 regular season. The Chiefs waived him on Friday.

The 23-year-old Moore played at the University of Alabama, East Mississippi Community College and the University of Texas during his collegiate career. The Chargers signed him after the 2013 draft concluded.


Good pick up, let's hope he can prove something. Maybe he can be our next Baker. Comes here, develops for a year and then gets it in his second or third year developing in our system...

It's signings like this that we have to be aggressive on since the league rapes us every year on comp picks

No the league doesn't "rape" us on comp picks, we just don't take advantage of the compensatory draft pick system because we're always worried about spending $ on free agents.

Because the kid played at Texas.

Doubtful since Orakpo was gone probably before the kid enrolled.

Well, it's not that we're worried about spending money on free agents. It's that we have had a lack of draft picks for a long time to necessitate avoiding free agency. That and the draft picks we have gotten outside of the first round have been of middling quality.

If we had better drafts/more picks, we would have more in-house guys. This in turn would mean less need to go out to free agency to fill lots of holes and would have more people leaving to sign elsewhere and thus gain us compensatory picks.

In short, if we wanted to do this, we would have had to been willing to give up on all of our free agents this year and rely solely on the draft (and UDFAs) to fill all of our holes. We haven't lost anyone of note so we wouldn't have gotten much next year even if we hadn't signed anyone.

This might be the only argument for signing Britt: you let him rehab his value here and go elsewhere for big bucks. However, to do that, you have to accept not signing any big names in his place (not necessarily at his position mind you).

Didn't want to start a new thread but according to pft he has been suspended 4 games for substance abuse. Why is everyone on our team a pot head? (I'm assuming its weed)

I heard this in the radio an hour ago on my trek home from Triangle, VA to Silver Spring, MD.

My response is, are we attracted to cheaters or what? Laughing

I'd wait until after the draft and minicamps. If he can beat out the UDFAs, then you let him try to show something at training camp.

However, the bar is much higher for him than one of the UDFA.

If he shows anything, it's worth keeping him around, as you said, there's no reason to cut him. Our 4/5th DE spot is wide open at the moment...

RDE: Bowen, Baker, Jenkins starting? Golston, Clifton Geathers or Worthington?

Nt: Cofield, Baker, Neild

LDE: Hatcher, Jenkins, Golston, Geathers or Worthington?

Anyone looking at this like I am? I know Mknight is and probably Thai also. DE needs to be taken in either rounds 2, 3 or 4.

At the same time, his leash needs to be measured in inches. Any other slipup and out the door. That includes a 5 mph over the speed limit ticket.
