As I wrote when Eddie Moore was placed on injured reserve last season:
Eddie Moore will forever be remembered as the "great prospect" from Tennessee who was oft injured in college, and in fact was rehabbing from injury when the Dolphins made him their first overall pick in 2003. And, because he was oft-injured in the pros, too. He was injured in his first preseason game and spent the year on IR. He made it back last year, and actually played in about 11 games - with 4 starts no less - only to get injured again and wind up on IR. This year, he had particpated in 6 games, and, well, ended up on IR this week. Future players who have similar distinguished careers can earn the coveted "Eddie Moore award" for ending every season on IR.
Today, Moore was traded to the Saints. I would say he played his last down in Miami, except its not clear he actually played a down here. So much for another Wanny decision...
[update on 5/11] Moore failed his physical and was returned to the Dolphins this afternoon, nullifying the trade.
