David Edward Moore (born November 11, 1969) is a former American football player who played for the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Buffalo Bills. During his career he was a tight end, fullback, and long snapper. Moore played in his only Pro Bowl in 2007 as long snapper for the NFC. Moore scored one of the first ever touchdowns in Raymond James Stadium, a 44 yard one-handed TD reception against the Chicago Bears on 20 September 1998, to inspire a comeback victory. He retired from playing on June 7, 2007.

Beginning with the 2007 football season, Moore began working for the Buccaneers Radio Network. He serves as the color analyst (replacing Hardy Nickerson from 2006) and works alongside play-by-play legend Gene Deckerhoff. In 2007 Moore refereed "The MDA Bowl", a charity game, at Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island, New York to help raise money in finding a cure for muscular dystrophy. The game was between the students of the school, who were known as The Buccarunies, and their teachers, who called themselves The Farrell Faculty. The Buccarunies defeated the teachers 6 to 3.

Moore also hosts his own fishing show on SunSports entitled "One Moore Catch" with his wife Annmarie Moore and owns a restaurant "The Island Way Grill" in Clearwater, Florida, with former teammate and close friend FB Mike Alstott. He has also been a coach at a little league team in St. Petersburg, Florida called Azalea Bulldogs. However, he is currently the head coach of the Shorecrest Chargers, a small private school in St. Petersburg.
