XFL free agents that the Redskins should be interested in signing
5. S Rahim Moore, D.C. Defenders
Remarkably, Rahim Moore is still playing football. Back in 2014, he was suffering from a leg injury that turned out to be compartment syndrome, a dangerous condition that nearly led to the amputation of his left leg.
Six years later, he’s still playing the game he loves. And he’s doing a great job of it for the D.C. Defenders.
Moore was waived before the season by the Defenders but was ultimately re-signed to the roster. And it worked out well for both the player and the team. Moore grabbed the new XFL’s first interception and was a solid playmaker in the back end for the Defenders.

Moore grabbed a couple of interceptions and recorded 15 tackles on the season after eventually earning a big role in their secondary. He proved that he still has something left in the tank and the safety could return to the NFL for the first time since being on the New York Giants offseason roster in 2017.
There are some drawbacks to Moore. Notably, he is 30 years old and he hasn’t found success at the NFL level in quite some time. But as a depth option at the safety position, he could be worth a shot. The Redskins should surely explore adding him to their depth chart and giving him another shot.
After all, he did play for D.C. So, why not give him a chance to prove himself and return to the NFL field in front of a fan base that is now more familiar with him?
