    Chargers dust off Brandon Moore

    Posted by Mike Florio on December 21, 2010, 4:56 PM EST

    Out of the NFL since 2007, linebacker Brandon Moore is back.

    The Chargers announced that they have signed the player who last played in an NFL game for the 49ers three years ago, and who has spent the last two seasons with the UFL’s Las Vegas Locomotives. Moore played for the Niners from 2002 through 2007.

    To create a roster spot for Moore, the Chargers cut linebacker Darry Beckwith.

    Moore is the latest former UFLer to join the NFL, a process that began once the UFL dropped its transfer fee from $150,000 to $25,000.

    Chargers sign LB Moore
    BY KEVIN ACEE
    TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2010 AT 4:38 P.M.

    The Chargers signed linebacker Brandon Moore, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2007.

    Moore (6-1, 240) spent six years with the San Francisco 49ers and played the 2009 and ’10 United Football League seasons with the Las Vegas Locomotives. Las Vegas won the league title both seasons.

    Moore replaced Darry Beckwith on the roster and is likely expected to primarily be a special teams contributor.

    Man, that's a REAL indictment against Beckwith. Unless this bozo is Kurt Warner Redux at the LB slot.

    Hey, you never know. It could be another Antonio Garay, Antoine Barnes type. I guess Beckwith wasn't that great I guess OR this Moore guy has some gas in the tank left.

    Is this the same Brandon Moore who was a linebacker at Oklahoma?
