Moore played 11 seasons in the NFL (2005-15), nine of them with the Saints. He caught 360 passes in his pro career, including a career-high of 78 in 2008. He battled injuries throughout most of 2009, but came back in time to help New Orleans win Super Bowl XLIV. His acrobatic snag of a two-point conversion was key in the Saints’ 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
Moore played for the Rockets from 2000-03, earning first-team All-MAC honors in his junior and senior seasons. As a junior, Moore set then-UT records for receptions (103), receiving yards (1,194) and TD receptions (9). His biggest game came in a 35-31 win over No. 9 Pittsburgh in which he the game-winner in the corner of the end zone in the waning moments of the contest. As a senior, Moore caught 90 passes for 1,189 yards, setting the school mark for TD receptions with 15, including three scores in Toledo’s 35-27 win over Miami in the 2004 MAC Championship Game. Moore was also an excellent student, earning Academic All-America honors as a senior in 2004.
Moore was inducted into the Varsity T Hall of Fame in 2011.
