Former Pittsburgh Steeler Mewelde Moore signed with the Indianapolis Colts today. The signing reunites Moore with former Steelers’ offensive coordinator Bruce Arians who now has the same position with Indy.
While never a game-changer, Moore did an excellent job in Pittsburgh in his role as a third down specialist. With Baron Batch expected back from his ACL injury and the addition of rookie Chris Rainey, Moore became expendable.
Moore was a really solid locker room guy who got along with everyone and was respected for doing his job well and always being prepared.
Personally, I think this is good pick up for the Colts. By adding Moore, they get a veteran presence who knows the Arians’ system and should be a tremendous asset for rookie QB Andrew Luck.
Moore will not be a guy who is sorely missed by fans in the Steel City but he deserves our gratitude for his hard work and simply knowing his role and doing it well.
