Moore started four games this season at inside linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts before being released. But Moore has some pass-rush skills. He had 7.5 sacks over the 2013 and 2014 seasons for the Oakland Raiders.
The Chiefs could use some help at linebacker, where they are playing without injured starters Justin Houston and Josh Mauga. In addition, the playing time of veteran Tamba Hali has been limited because of his sore knees.
Moore might not get much immediate playing time. But eventually the Chiefs might look for situations where they think he could help, at least until Houston returns, which the Chiefs believe could be some time later in the season.
The Chiefs waived linebacker Dezman Moses to clear roster room.
