Former Houston County defensive end Kyle Moore was released by the Chicago Bears on Sunday as NFL teams made mandated roster cuts.
Moore was a highly recruited player out of high school before choosing to attend the University of Southern California. After a solid college career, he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The former Bear battled injuries during much of his time in Tampa and ultimately spent the past two seasons as a member of the Buffalo Bills where he started seven games a year ago and finished with three sacks.
He was signed by the Bears in April to compete at a loaded defensive end position. With players like Julius Peppers, Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin already occupying the top three spots on the depth chart, Moore was in a competition with two other players for the fourth position.
He will now wait to see if he is claimed off of waivers by another franchise.
Perry softball looks for turnaround
After an 0-4 beginning to the 2013 season, the Perry softball team is trying to turn around an inauspicious start.
The Panthers have reeled off three consecutive wins over Thomas County Central, First Presbyterian Day School and Crawford County since then. Pitching and defense has been key as all wins have come by shutout.
Perry has a busy week on tap as it tries to maintain momentum in games against Jones County, Warner Robins, First Presbyterian Day and Howard.
All games will take place at the Panther Pit except for the county rivalry against Warner Robins.
