Bears cut Kyle Moore

Teams don’t have to be down to 75 players until Tuesday afternoon, but we’re already starting to find out the names of players who will not make it through the initial cuts.

A league source tells PFT that the Bears have released defensive end Kyle Moore. Moore, a 2009 fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers, signed with the Bears in April. He played in all three preseason games for Chicago this summer and recorded a sack against the Raiders last week.

With Julius Peppers, Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin occupying the top three spots in the defensive end rotation, Moore was fighting with rookie Cornelius Washington and Cheta Ozuogwu for the fourth spot in the pecking order. With Peppers and Wootton each missing games this summer, Moore had plenty of opportunities to prove he was the right man for the job but the team obviously felt that his case wasn’t persuasive enough to keep him around.

Moore had three sacks for the Bills last year and has started 14 games over his four years in the NFL.

    The CFL level of talent on this team goes a lot deeper than this cut.

    Be funny if the Packers or Steelers sign him.

    He’ll be playing for somebody this season, he just couldn’t make it onto one of the best d-lines in the NFL. He may be a perfect fit on the Packers second rate, gimmick defense.
