Career NFL statistics as of 2012
Evan James Moore (born January 3, 1985) is an American football tight end, currently a free agent in the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football and college basketball at Stanford.
Moore attended Brea Olinda High School in Orange County, California and was an All-American in both football and basketball. He led his basketball team with 24.5 points per game and his football team with 13 touchdowns his senior year. He was named the "Orange County Athlete of the Year" for his performance in the athletic arena. Other notable recipients of this award include Tony Gonzalez (Atlanta Falcons) and DeShaun Foster (Carolina Panthers). His high school career propelled him into a position to play both football and basketball on a full scholarship at Stanford University. He chose Stanford over USC and UCLA.
At Stanford, Moore was the starting wide receiver for Stanford. He had a solid sophomore season, leading his team in touchdown receptions. The following year (his junior season) he suffered a serious injury, a dislocated hip, which sidelined him for the entire season. He was able to receive a medical redshirt for his junior season. At Stanford, Moore graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science (with a concentration in pre-law) and a Master's degree in Sociology (with a concentration in Business and Organizational Behavior).

He was promoted to the active roster December 5. In Moore's NFL debut against the San Diego Chargers, he caught 6 passes for 80 yards and was the team's leading receiver on the day. After playing in only 5 regular season games with the Cleveland Browns in 2009, Moore led all tight ends in receptions and yards on the season and was among the team's top receiving targets. He was released by the Browns on August 31, 2012.
