The Colts decided they no longer wanted linebacker Sio Moore around earlier this week and released him after he started the first four games of the season for Indianapolis.

The Chiefs are hoping Moore can do a better job in Kansas City. The team announced on Friday that they have signed Moore and released linebacker Dezman Moses.

Moore had 30 tackles for the Colts this year before being released as the team shook up their defense in hopes of getting better results. He also played 12 games for the Colts last year after being acquired in a trade with the Raiders. Oakland drafted Moore in the third round of the 2013 draft and he had 140 tackles, 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 26 games for his new team’s divisional rival.

Moore will wait at least a week before making his debut with his new team as the Chiefs are on a bye this week. Moses had two tackles in three appearances this season.

    I Like the Signing, Now let’s sign a veteran corner to add to our group. Our young pup corners could use some veteran leadership around them.

    I never could stand this undisciplined clown when he was with the Raiders and if he plays for K.C. he will be a liability. Maybe Reid has some sentimental feeling toward Moore because that tool almost lost a game for Oakland against the Chiefs in 2014 with his ridiculous dance after a late-game sack.

    Man. I don’t know if I can stomach Grigson & Pagano much longer. They try to shake up the defense by getting rid of the team’s leading tackler that has been all over the field and played well.

    He’ll be cut within two weeks. He was bad in college, bad with the Raiders, and horrible with the Colts. The opposing QB gets up to the line and looks for this guy, then runs or throws right at him. Of course he’ll lead the team in tackles, but they’re all ten yards downfield. This guy looks like a monster on the stat sheet, but a complete reject on the tape.
