Safety Kareem Moore Pushing for a Starting Job

The Post reports that it looks like safety Kareem Moore is pushing for a starting spot for the club:

Throughout the offseason program, Redskins free safety Kareem Moore impressed coaches with his coverage range and ability to make plays on deep balls. Moore is off to a good start in training camp in his bid to become a starter in his third NFL season, and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett sees a lot to like in his performance. “He’s athletic and he’s big, he’s 215 pounds,” Haslett said. “He can run, he’s a playmaker, I think he’ll tackle. I’ve seen him tackle. I think he’ll be a good guy in the back end and he’ll give you some options.” If Moore retains his position atop the depth chart at free, he would be the only non-first-round pick in the first-team unit. The Redskins selected Moore in the sixth round (180th overall) of the 2008 draft. “I’m just trying to take advantage of every opportunity the coaches give me,” Moore said. “I’m trying to make plays when they’re there, but I just want to play the defense the way it’s called, do my job and help my teammates as much as I can.”
