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.
