Re­port: Red­skins sign line­backer Moody

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Ac­cord­ing to Pro Foot­ball Talk, the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins signed line­backer Nick Moody on Tues­day.

Moody, 26, most re­cently played for the Seat­tle Sea­hawks in the 2015 sea­son, par­tic­i­pat­ing in just three games. Drafted with the 180th-over­all pick in the 2013 draft by the San Fran­cisco 49ers, Moody’s most pro­duc­tive sea­son came in 2014, when he par­tic­i­pated in all 16 games, in­clud­ing two as the 49ers’ start­ing line­backer. Moody recorded 16 tack­les that year. As an un­re­stricted free agent this year, Moody was sus­pended for the first four games of the sea­son this year for vi­o­lat­ing the NFL’s drug pol­icy. An ar­rest war­rant was also is­sued for Moody ear­lier this year for fail­ing to show up to court to tes­tify against for­mer team­mate Al­don Smith in his DUI and flee­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent charges he faced in April. The ar­rest war­rant was dropped af­ter a week once Moody ap­peared in court.

Red­skins line­backer Will Comp­ton is deal­ing with a pos­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment, while line­backer Su’a Cravens is deal­ing with a brachialis strain, an in­jury to the deep mus­cle lo­cated be­tween his bi­cep and el­bow. Both play­ers are “week-to-week,” ac­cord­ing to Red­skins coach Jay Gru­den.
