Wednesday, October 5th, 2011 at 9:53 am in Oakland Raiders.
For those who aren’t following me on Twitter, just wanted to mention that cornerback Sterling Moore was signed by the New England Patriots and placed on their practice squad.
Moore was signed by the Raiders before training camp as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Methodist, and he remained on the team until the final roster cut. He was re-signed one day after he was cut and placed on the Raiders practice squad.
He was on Oakland’s practice squad until 10 days ago, when the Raiders released him and signed defensive back Ron Parker.
Moore, a local product out of Deer Valley High School, played well throughout camp and in Oakland’s four exhibition games. However, the Raiders opted to keep drafted rookies Chimdi Chekwa and DeMarcus Van Dyke, as well as Joe Porter instead.
I am headed out to practice in a few minutes. Stay tuned for several updates throughout the day, with the first one coming in about an hour.
