During his career he was a tight end, fullback, and long snapper. Moore played in his only Pro Bowl in 2007 as long snapper for the NFC. Moore scored one of the first ever touchdowns in Raymond James Stadium, a 44-yard one-handed touchdown reception against the Chicago Bears on 20 September 1998, to inspire a comeback victory. Moore had 28 receiving touchdowns. That equates to one touchdown every 7 passes he caught. To date, Moore is ranked #4 all time for games played by a TE in NFL history with 220 games. Moore retired after attending the Pro Bowl in 2007.
Beginning with the 2007 football season, Moore began working for the Buccaneers Radio Network.

In 2007, Moore refereed "The MDA Bowl", a charity game, at Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island, New York to help raise money in finding a cure for muscular dystrophy. The game was between the students of the school, who were known as The Buccarunies, and their teachers, who called themselves The Farrell Faculty. The Buccarunies defeated the teachers 6 to 3.
