The Redskins have released 27-year old safety Kareem Moore.  Moore did not play at all this season due to injury.  Moore played in 42 games in four years with the Redskins and he had 113 tackles, 8 passes defensed, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries.  Other safeties have passed up Moore while he was out this year, so that is the reason the Redskins let him go.  If he’s healthy, he shouldn’t have a problem finding a new team.

UPDATE:  (11/15/2011) – The Redskins have re-signed Donte’ Stallworth.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Redskins Talk,Leaving Town by admin on Sunday 4 September 2011 at 6:59 pm

The Redskins have released 26-year old linebacker H.B. Blades.  Blades played in all 16 games for the Redskins last year and he had 18 tackles.  He played in 64 games in his four years with the Redskins and he had 139 tackles, 1 tackle for a loss and 1 pass defensed.  Blades wasn’t much of a playmaker on D and he can also be replaced pretty easily on special teams.  This is a case of addition by subtraction for the Redskins as he was just taking up roster space.
