Colts acquired LB Sio Moore from the Raiders in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2016.
We're going to go out on a limb and guess this deal works out better than Colts GM Ryan Grigson's Jerry Hughes and Trent Richardson trades. For whatever reason, Moore was immediately disliked by the new Jack Del Rio coaching staff in Oakland despite piling up 7.5 sacks, 140 tackles, and two forced fumbles in his first two NFL seasons. The 66th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Moore turned 25 years old in May. He can play inside and outside linebacker and should become a contributor as the season moves along. The Colts also acquire Moore's contract, which puts him under Indy's control for near-minimum base salaries the next two seasons. The Colts should win this one pretty handily. Sep 4 - 8:14 PM

Coach Jack Del Rio said LB Sio Moore is "competing to be a role player somewhere."

Moore missed the entire offseason and most of training camp recovering from hip surgery and an undisclosed injury. He’s been passed on the depth chart by Malcolm Smith. Moore started 22 games his first two seasons, but isn’t guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster.

The San Jose Mercury News speculates Raiders WLB Sio Moore could be on the trade block.

Moore was held out of the first two preseason games with a hip injury and did not appear to play any defensive snaps in the third exhibition contest. Coach Jack Del Rio said Moore was "competing to be a role player" after missing most of the preseason.

Raiders WLB Sio Moore (hip) is practicing on Saturday.

Aug 1 - 1:48 PM

Raiders placed WLB Sio Moore (hip) on active/PUP.

Moore underwent "major" hip surgery in the offseason and needs more time. He was initially expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Moore provided some pass-rush juice opposite Khalil Mack last season, but was bottom-five among 4-3 outside linebackers in missed tackles. The Raiders signed LB Malcolm Smith as insurance and competition for Moore this summer.

May 26 - 4:12 PM

Raiders WLB Sio Moore (hip) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Moore will likely miss the majority of OTAs recovering from December hip surgery, but should be close to 100 percent for the start of camp. He had 90 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in 11 games prior to going on I.R. Moore will return as a starter in new coach Jack Del Rio's scheme.
Feb 18 - 6:00 PM

Raiders placed ILB Sio Moore on injured reserve with a hip injury, ending his season.

Moore's injury isn't believed to be overly serious, but he wasn't going to be ready for the season's final two games. An 11-game starter, Moore made plays for one of the league's worst defenses, tallying 90 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. He graded out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings, but made improvements as the year wore on. Regardless of who's calling the shots for Oakland in 2015, Moore will be back as a starter.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Sat, Dec 6, 2014 07:12:00 PM

Raiders LB Sio Moore (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Nick Roach (concussion) is questionable for the game after missing the last four weeks. Miles Burris has been filling in at middle linebacker for Roach, but will likely shift outside with Moore down. Kaluka Maiava could start in the middle if Roach is unable to go. The Raiders have given up a league-high 400 rushing yards through the first two games of the season.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (neck) returned to practice Tuesday.

Moore was carted off the field during Friday's preseason opener. X-rays later revealed he only suffered a neck strain. He should be good for Week 1.
Tue, Aug 26, 2014 03:53:00 PM

Raiders LB Sio Moore reportedly suffered a neck strain in Friday night's third preseason game.

It was the best possible outcome after Moore had to be carted off the field during the second quarter. X-Rays were negative, and Moore was allowed to fly home with his teammates. His status for Week 1 is uncertain.

Raiders LB Sio Moore (neck) was carted off the field during Friday night's preseason game at Green Bay.

Moore was chasing down a play when he got blocked awkwardly up high by Packers fullback John Kuhn. His neck was stabilized by the training staff and he was stretchered to the locker room. Moore, who was replaced by Miles Burris, was later diagnosed with a neck strain. His status for Week 1 is uncertain.
Fri, Aug 22, 2014 09:16:00 PM

Sio Moore has been working as the Raiders' second-team weak-side linebacker in training camp.

Miles Burris is running with the ones at "Will," with rookie Khalil Mack at Sam 'backer and Nick Roach in the middle. Moore flashed promise during his rookie season, but isn't a natural fit on the weak side, and may be limited to a pass-rush specialist role. Moore had 4.5 sacks in 11 starts last year.
