The Patriots promoted Sterling Moore from the practice squad to the 53-man roster today, as he filled the void left by Josh Barrett. He’d been around for a while, but obviously, today was different.
Of course, the 5-foot-10, 205-pound former SMU student was pretty psyched.
“Man, it’s just a great feeling,” Moore said today. “Thankful for the opportunity. Just gotta go out there and try to make the best of it, make plays, and show them I deserved to be there.”
Barrett was a starter at safety, which leaves a void there. Part of me wonders if Moore, who has played some safety, could fill in. He’s small for position, but not that small. And he’s played in the slot, which is similar.
