The Raiders pressed their luck one too many times with Sterling Moore. Either that or they just didn’t think he was ever going to make much of an impact. Twice the Raiders parted ways with Moore. The first time he was still there for the picking. This time Moore has moved on.
Today the New England Patriots signed Moore to their practice squad.
Now I’m not here to say that Sterling Moore, an undrafted free agent, was going to be the deciding factor in this team taking the AFC West crown. However he did show plenty of promise in the preseason and in the humble opinion of this Raider fan deserved a roster spot ahead of Joe Porter.
But that really is irrelevant in the big picture. The Pats are among the few teams with a defense worse than Oakland’s. Both teams need all the help they can get and as usual are continuing their personnel swapping.
