Robert Sean Moore (born September 27, 1968), is a former professional American football player who was selected by the New York Jets in the 1990 Supplemental Draft. A 6'3", 202-lb. wide receiver from Syracuse University, Moore played 11 NFL seasons from 1990 to 2001. In 153 games played (146 starts), Moore registered 628 receptions for 9,368 yards and 49 touchdowns. In the 1997 season Moore caught 97 receptions for 1,584 yards and 8 touchdowns and en route to an All-Pro selection.[2] He graduated from Hempstead High School in Hempstead, New York.

His younger brother is Linebacker Brandon Moore also played in the NFL.[3]

Footage of Moore appeared in the hit movie Jerry Maguire. The character Rod Tidwell, played by Cuba Gooding, Jr. wore Moore's #85 jersey number.

On January 11, 2010, it was reported that Moore would be named the WR coach at his alma mater, Syracuse University.[4] On February 6, 2014, Moore was added to the Buffalo Bills coaching staff where he will coach receivers.[1] The announcement came one day after National Signing Day, perhaps a courtesy extended to Syracuse by former coach Doug Marrone, so as not to disrupt recruiting efforts Moore had been involved in.
