Former Ravens LB claimed off waivers by the Steelers

According to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson, the Steelers grabbed former Ravens linebacker Jeremiah Moon off of waivers on Thursday.
We’ll postpone the roster change until after the Super Bowl. In order to create way for tight end Mark Andrews, who is set to return from injured reserve ahead of the AFC Championship, the Ravens dismissed Moon.

The Ravens selected Moon as an undrafted free agent in 2022. In the eight games he played for Baltimore in 2023, he racked up 12 total tackles and two forced fumbles.
Moon was viewed as a raw but athletic talent coming out of Florida. At the NFL Combine, the 6’5″, 249-pound linebacker recorded a 40-yard dash time of 4.76 seconds in addition to a 40.5″ vertical.

Jeremiah Moon #48 of the Baltimore Ravens celebrates after recording a sack against Sam Howell #14 of the Washington Commanders during the first half of the preseason game at FedExField on August 21, 2023 in Landover, Maryland.

Here is what the BTSC scouting report for Jeremiah Moon said in the run-up to the 2022 NFL Draft:

Moon is an agile and adaptable defender that has played EDGE and inside linebacker in the past. He frequently uses his athleticism too much, which can result in bad technique, particularly when taking on blocks. Moon can fire gaps with remarkable speed, but his hand countermeasures are not very good. In a similar vein, he reads the offense slowly even if he covers with good quickness. Nevertheless, Moon puts out a strong effort on the field, and given his physical makeup and defensive versatility, he might be selected as a developmental day three choice.

Moon will join the Steelers after the Super Bowl, which takes place on February 11. On the depth chart in the offseason, his athleticism and flexibility will make him a player to keep an eye on.
