Denver Signs Moore

Broncos Update first reported the Moore signing on March 19, but today the team made it official. Check out the Broncos official press release on their newest wide receiver.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.-The Denver Broncos have signed free agent wide receiver Rob Moore. A 12-year NFL veteran, Moore has played previously with Arizona (1995-2001) and the New York Jets (1990-94). He was released by the Cardinals Feb. 27, 2002, after spending much of the past two seasons on injured reserve with knee and hamstring injuries.

Moore, 33, has started 150 of his 153 career games and caught 628 passes for 9,368 yards (14.9) and 49 touchdowns, including three 1,000-yard receiving seasons (1994, 1996-97) and 23 100-yard games. His best season came in 1997 with the Cardinals when he set career highs for receptions (97), yards (1,584) and touchdowns (8), and posted eight 100-yard games. Moore ranks 19th on the NFL's all-time list for receiving yards and 23rd in career receptions.

The 6-3, 204-pound receiver has also added 15 catches for 202 yards (13.5) in three postseason games, and has been voted to two Pro Bowls, following the 1994 and '97 seasons.

Moore missed the entire 2000 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a preseason game at Minnesota (Aug. 18). Last season he was declared inactive for the first 10 games because of an injury to his right hamstring, and was placed on injured reserve Nov. 30.

Moore was drafted by the Jets in 1990 in the first round of the supplemental draft and played five seasons with the club. He was traded to the Cardinals April 21, 1995, for running back Ronald Moore and two 1995 draft choices (1st round, 4th round).

A three-year letterman at Syracuse, Moore still holds the school record for career touchdown receptions (22), and finished his career No. 1 in receiving yards (2,122). He currently ranks third in yards and fourth in receptions (106).

A native of Hempstead, N.Y., Moore earned all-state acclaim in football, basketball and track at Hempstead High School, and was an all-conference lacrosse player. He and his wife, Drucilla, have three children.

Robert S. Moore was born Sept. 15, 1968 in Hempstead, N.Y.
