Raiders LB Sio Moore On The Trade Block?

Is Sio Moore on the trade block? According to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur, the idea isn’t so far-fetched.

Moore has struggled to stay on the field since “major” hip surgery that ended his 2014 season. Head coach Jack Del Rio said the team is trying to find a role for the Raiders’ third-year linebacker.

Less than two weeks ago, former NFL general manager, Mark Dominik, had this to say about Moore in an ESPN insider piece:

Moore checks off all the boxes — size, speed, toughness, instincts, desire. Best of all, he’s an excellent tackler, who’s an absolute steal at his current cap number.

Moore was third on the Raiders in tackles (89) last year despite playing in only 11 games. He has two years remaining on his rookie contract.
