Report: Redskins release Brandon Moore after suspension

Defensive end Brandon Moore hadn’t been a member of the Redskins for long before he was given a four-game suspension by the league for violating the substance-abuse policy.

He wasn’t a member of the team for long after getting the suspension, either. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Redskins released Moore on Tuesday.

Moore spent preseason with the Chargers last year and earned a spot on their practice squad, but has not played in an NFL regular season game. The suspension and release will limit the likelihood that he ever plays in a game as any interested team would have to wait for him to serve the suspension before he’d be able to contribute to the team.

For a player who went undrafted last year and doesn’t have much NFL tape to show prospective employers, that’s not a particularly good foundation for a lengthy professional career.

    There’s a reason that the Chiefs released him…

    Can you say, “Would you like fries with that?”

    wait a minute… he is a big defensive end, so he would say, “Where do you want this couch, ma’am?”

    Not a big loss. He was below average at best.

    The redskins lead the league in suspensions while everyone harped on Seattle as soon as they passes them,mind your they barely passed the redskins total by 1 player and all the sudden Seattle is cheaters even stupid redskins fans saying it . Theirs one player currently on Seattle who was ever suspended for anything . He’s from the DC area JS.

    Glass houses people remember that next time your conjure Up more excuses why
    One team is better than yours.

    Why would he have to wait? Tank Johnson had a 4 game suspension to serve when the Lions released him, and the Cowboys picked him up later in the season without any games off. That’s right; it’s the Cowboys. My bad.

    Redskins can’t even copy the Seahawks correctly.

    Chip Kelly states it was purely a “football move”.

    Talk about throwing the lottery ticket away. Hope the weed was worth it, moron.

    Happens every day in every profession. Someone, for whatever reason, uses some substance, and gets suspended. Don’t act like you know better, the world needs ditch diggers too and I feel I can say with a fair amount of certainty that they get UA’d as well.

    Who said the Redskins were trying to copy Seattle anyway……

    surprised at all of the negative comments, you all do know how it works right? The team is out nothing until the player actually makes the roster… so what’s the harm in signing a player to give them a chance, and when they get suspended releasing them.

    It’s not like they gave him a multi-year guaranteed deal
