Oakland Raiders[edit]

Moore was signed by the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent on July 28, 2011. He was waived on September 3 and re-signed the next day to the practice squad.[1] He

New England Patriots[edit]

On October 5, 2011, he was signed by the New England Patriots to their practice squad.[2] On October 15, he was signed to the active roster and made his NFL debut against the New York Jets on November 13, starting every snap at safety for the Patriots.[3]

On December 10, 2011, Moore was released by New England. On December 14, 2011 he was re-signed to the Patriots practice squad and on December 23, 2011 he was promoted to the active roster. On January 1, 2012, in Week 17 of the 2011-12 NFL season, Moore recorded two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills and returning one for a touchdown. Late in the AFC Championship against the Baltimore Ravens, he knocked the ball out of Lee Evans' hands, saving a touchdown. Had Moore not made the play, Evans would have caught the ball and sent the Ravens to the Super Bowl.[4] After the incomplete pass, Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying field goal as the Patriots went on to win 23-20, giving him an AFC Championship ring.[5]

On October 31, 2012, he was waived and re-signed to the Patriots practice squad two days later.[6]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

On November 30, 2012, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys from the New England Patriots practice squad to replaced an injured Orlando Scandrick.[7] He played in the last five games of the season mostly in passing situations.

Moore was released on August 31, 2013, in favor of rookie fourth round draft choice B.W. Webb.[8] The team brought him back on November 25, to play as the fourth corner in passing situations.[9]

In 2014, after being mostly relegated to a reserve role during his career, he was named the team's nickel back during Orlando Scandrick's suspension and kept the role after Morris Claiborne suffered a season ending knee injury. He played in 16 games (7 starts), registered 49 tackles and led all Cowboys defensive backs with 14 passes defensed.[10]
