Redkins Release Kareem Moore; Bring Back Donte Stallworth, Darrion Scott
Kareem Moore spent nearly a year waiting for his opportunity to once again play for the Washington Redskins – an opportunity that will not come.
Moore, a 5-foot-11, 215-pound free safety, was released by the Redskins yesterday afternoon after spending the team’s first nine games on the physically-unable-to-perform list, according to a team source.
He originally injured his left knee during the 2010 preseason, rushed back to play for the Redskins after missing two games and was hampered by issues all season. He was placed on injured reserve before the final week and underwent offseason surgery, but issues persisted, leading to him opening the season on the PUP list yet again.
He was eligible to return from the PUP list after six weeks, at which point he began to practice with the team, but facing today’s deadline to activate players from that list or lose them for the year, the Redskins instead chose to release him.
The team also officially placed receiver Leonard Hankerson (hip) and defensive end Kedric Golston (torn MCL) on injured reserve, ending their seasons. To replace them, they re-signed receiver Donte Stallworth and defensive end Darrion Scott, each of whom were released by the Redskins a week ago.
