Former starting linebacker Sio Moore is no longer a member of the Oakland Raiders. The embattled linebacker has been traded to the Colts for a 2016 late round draft pick. It is reportedly a 6th round pick according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Sio himself tweeted a goodbye earlier today to the team that drafted him and the fans who supported him.

Sio said via tweet Friday "This has been more than a home to me... So much [of] my heart is in the bay... My teammates RaiderNation Yall are family to me. Will miss yall."

He recently started his new Twitter account after having deleted his previous account. Not long after this tweet, he deleted all of his tweets, but I managed to get a screen shot of the tweet prior to its deletion.

Sio Moore farewell

Sio didn't play on defense in the team's third preseason game and played only one defensive drive late in the game Thursday night against the Seahawks.

Following the game, Jack Del Rio said that those who saw the field the most were the ones who "earned it".
