Weatherspoon offers William Moore update

FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon has been in contact with former pro and college teammate William Moore, who was released by the Falcons over the offseason.

“It happens,” Weatherspoon said. “I’m sure they felt (a certain) way when I wasn’t here last year. … But when I sit in the room and look up, he’s on the wall in there because he made the Pro Bowl. I get to see him in the defensive meeting room. That’s my dog.”

Moore was drafted by the Falcons in the second-round of the 2009 draft and Weatherspoon was added in 2010. Both played at Missouri.

“We always talk,” Weatherspoon said. “We always get together. He’s still here in Atlanta working out and stuff. He’s trying to figure out the next step.

“He’s doing good. That’s my ace. Like, no joke about it, I’m going to miss playing with him. It was tough for me last year, but ultimately, the business is the business.

“I love Will.”
