The Washington Redskins made a somewhat surprising decision on Tuesday, releasing safety Kareem Moore one day before they were forced to decide whether to activate him off the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen.

Moore had not played yet this season, having been placed on the PUP list to start the year. That required the Redskins to leave him off the active roster for at least six weeks. He had not been activated since that day passed.

Moore was the Redskins' starting free safety last season, but suffered a knee injury in training camp in 2010 and ended up having a poor season. Because of his struggles, the Redskins signed Oshiomogho Atogwe to start at free safety, relegating Moore to the bench. Now, Moore won't even be on the team, as the club decided it would rather keep rookie DeJon Gomes around.
