Sports are my life. SMU is my passion. Football is my religion. Mustangs in the Pros. Here's the 411!
Sterling Moore currently plays for the Tampa Bay Bucs.
On November 30, 2012, Moore was signed by the Dallas Cowboys.
Sterling made an impact in his first season on the Hilltop. He had a team-high 11 pass breakups on the year, added 35 tackles, and played in 11 games, starting 10. He missed the final two games of the regular season with a knee injury, but recovered in time for SMU’s Hawaii Bowl win, starting and notching seven stops against Nevada. He also added seven tackles in SMU’s win at UAB, as the Mustangs snapped a 17-game Conference USA losing streak and a 15-game road losing streak and recovered a fumble in the end zone for a TD against Navy.
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 resigned to the Patriots practice squad and on December 23, 2011 he was promoted to the active roster. On 1/1/2012, Week 17 of the 2011-12 NFL season, Moore recorded two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills, 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 most likely caught the ball and sent the Ravens to the Super Bowl. After the incomplete pass, Billy Cundiff missed a potential game tying field goal as the Patriots went on to win 23-20. He received his AFC Championship ring.
Sterling was released by the Cowboys on August 31, 2013 as a part of the final roster cuts.
He was resigned to the Cowboys on November 25, 2013, and then to the Bucs on March 19, 2015 during FA.
