Early years[edit]

College career[edit]

Moore played college football in Division II at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.[4]

Professional career[edit]

Seattle Seahawks[edit]

In the 2017 NFL Draft, Moore was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round, 226th overall.[5] Two weeks later on May 12, the Seahawks signed him to a four-year, $2.48 million contract that included a signing bonus of $87,365.[6] Moore was waived on September 2, and assigned to the practice squad the next day.[7][8] He was promoted to the Seahawks' active roster on November 22, 2017.[9]

Against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4 of the 2018 season, Moore recorded his first two professional receptions for 39 total yards.[10] In the following game against the Los Angeles Rams, he had three receptions for 38 yards and his first two professional receiving touchdowns.[11] In Weeks 6 and 8, he recorded a receiving touchdown against the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions.[12][13] In Week 12, he had his first game going over the century mark with 103 yards and a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers.[14] Moore finished the 2018 season with 26 receptions for 445 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns.[15]

In the 2019 season, Moore finished with 17 receptions for 301 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.[16] He re-signed with Seattle on a one-year contract on April 22, 2020.[17]

During the Seahawks' Week 2 game against the New England Patriots in 2020, Moore caught an improbable 38-yard touchdown on the sideline. The catch probability was rated as 6.3%, the lowest since Tyler Lockett's toe-drag reception in 2019 against the Rams.

Carolina Panthers[edit]

On March 18, 2021, Moore signed a two-year contract with the Carolina Panthers.[18]
