Redskins claim DL Brandon Moore from Chiefs | Comcast SportsNet Washington
Moore, 23, is an undrafted rookie out of Texas who is listed at 6 foot 5, 317-pounds. He spent the majority of the 2013 season on San Diego’s practice squad before being released in November. He then was signed to Denver’s practice squad but was released by the Broncos on Dec. 31. Moore, who began his college career at Alabama, transferred to a junior college and spent the 2012 season playing for the Longhorns, has never appeared in an NFL game. He projects as a defensive end in the Redskins’ 3-4 scheme. "Naturally large man with long limbs and good overall weight distribution. Scheme versatile. Flashes a powerful bull rush to push the pocket," write Rob Rang of NFLdraftscout.com "Possesses just average burst but shows surprising straight-line speed once he gets going. Untapped potential."

The Redskins Blog | Riggo Ponders The Nature Of Friendship
The old camaraderie returned when the "Diesel" hobnobbed with "Grimey," Donnie, "Jake" and Jeff – also known as Grimm, Don Warren, Joe Jacoby and Jeff Bostic. "The best way to sum it up is that when we left there after a couple of hours on the beach I swear… it felt like I would see those guys at 10 o’clock in the morning at the Park," Riggins said. "I mean, you just go right back to where you were. It was uncanny. I get goosebumps telling you that. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something that I think in all of us that they say when you are a young child it’s in the DNA, and it’s just something that’s a reflex action. It’s a great feeling to have. I love being around them just for that reason, just to feel like, ‘Okay, we’re going back and we’re doing it again.’"
