Although Moore is steeped in Oakland's 4-3 defense, he was billed as scheme versatile entering the league -- boasting the ability to play any linebacker position. He's an interesting fit in Indianapolis as a run-thumper with coverage and pass-rushing skills.
Moore struggled this summer despite finishing third on the team in tackles in only 11 games last season. He was also an All-Rookie selection in 2013.
With Moore sidelined following major hip surgery, defensive coordinator Ken Norton installed free-agent acquisition Malcolm Smith as the offseason starter at weakside linebacker.
Moore landed in the new coaching staff's doghouse after he spent too much time in the trainer's room during camp.
Coach Jack Del Rio made it clear last week that Moore was competing to be a role player, limiting the third-year linebacker to special teams duty in the regular-season dress rehearsal.
