Sterling Moore (born February 3, 1990) is an American football cornerback who currently plays for the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys waived Moore on August 31, 2013.[1] Before going pro, Moore played college football for Southern Methodist University. He was re-signed by the Cowboys on November 25, 2013.

Professional career[edit]

Oakland Raiders[edit]

He was signed by the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent on July 28, 2011. On September 26, 2011, he was released from the Oakland practice squad.

New England Patriots[edit]

On November 13, 2011, Moore made his NFL debut against the New York Jets, starting every snap at safety for the New England Patriots.

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. 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.[2]

On October 31, 2012, Moore was waived. He was re-signed to the Patriots practice squad two days later, on November 2, 2012.

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Moore was a roster cut on August 31, 2013. The team brought him back on November 25, to play as the fourth corner in passing situations.
