Maulty Moore (born August 12, 1946), is a former professional American football defensive tackle who played for five seasons with the Miami Dolphins, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Undrafted on graduating Bethune-Cookman College in 1970, he began a year of conditioning that added 50 pounds to his undersized frame before trying out for the Dolphins as a free agent. He was signed to the Dolphins' taxi squad in 1971, and promoted to special teams the next year.[1][2] He blocked a Roy Gerela field goal attempt during the Dolphins' 1972 AFC Championship Game victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.[3] Waived by the Dolphins in 1975, he spent a year with the Bengals before finishing his career in 1976 with the then expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.[4] Moore went on to teach in the Broward County school system.[5]
