While playing at Vanderbilt, he garnered First Team All-SEC honors from the Associated Press in his sophomore and junior years.[1][2] He was also named an All-American in his junior year,[3] as he helped lead Vanderbilt to victory in the 2008 Music City Bowl, exactly 53 years since the team's last victory at a bowl. In an interview following the game, Moore announced that he would forgo his senior season to enter the NFL draft.[4]

Professional career[edit]

Chicago Bears[edit]

Moore was selected by the Chicago Bears in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.[5] On May 29, 2009, he signed a 4-year deal with Chicago, signing him through 2012.[6] Moore appeared in three games in his rookie season, serving as a backup cornerback behind Charles Tillman and Corey Graham at the left cornerback position.[7] During the 2010 Season, Moore has seen considerable playing time contributing as the nickelback when the team leaves its base 4-3 coverage. He intercepted two passes from Tony Romo during a game against the Dallas Cowboys. On October 24, 2010, he intercepted a pass from Donovan McNabb of the Washington Redskins and ran it back 54 yards for a touchdown. Moore also returned another McNabb interception for a touchdown, but it was nullified due to a holding penalty.[8] In the 2011 season against the Detroit Lions, Moore was ejected from the game for starting a brawl after Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford pulled him down by the helmet.[9]

After the 2012 season the Bears decided not to resign Moore.[10]

Carolina Panthers[edit]

On March 19, 2013, Moore signed a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers.[11] He was released on October 21, 2013.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

On February 14, 2014, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Moore, reuniting him with his former coach in Chicago, now with Tampa Bay, Lovie Smith.[12]
