Free agent S William Moore told ESPN's Vaughn McClure that he'd "absolutely" be interested in re-signing with the Falcons.
Moore hasn't attracted much interest since getting cut by Atlanta in February, though he did work out for the Patriots a few months back. With rookie SS Keanu Neal (knee scope) on the shelf, the Falcons may consider a reunion with Moore. It's unclear how much the 31-year-old has left in the tank after missing 14 games due to injury over the past two seasons. Aug 26 - 1:19 PM

Date:

Free agent S William Moore recently worked out for the Patriots.

It's the first bit of known interest Moore has received since he was released by the Falcons about 100 days ago. Moore turned 31 on Wednesday. His body has betrayed him since a promising start to his career. One of the more injury-prone players in the league, Moore simply may not have much left.
May 18 - 3:12 PM

Falcons released SS William Moore.

OLB Justin Durant has also been cut. The No. 55 overall pick of the 2009 Draft, Moore began his career as a playmaker, but has proven to be one of the most injury-prone players in football. He missed five games in 2015, and 29 over the past five years. Going on 31, his play has steadily eroded. The move clears up $3.2 million in cap space, but leaves behind $3.3 million in dead money. Moore could compete for a job next season, but shouldn't be signed as a starter.
Feb 8 - 2:56 PM

Falcons placed SS William Moore on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

It's the second straight year Moore has landed on injured reserve in December. Moore also ended 2009 on I.R., and spent the majority of 2014 on I.R./return. Going on 31, Moore is one of the most injury prone players in the league, while his effectiveness has waned. Due $4.9 million between salary and bonuses next season, he'll almost certainly have to take a pay cut to remain in Atlanta. The Falcons could opt to move on altogether.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 03:21:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore was forced from Atlanta's Week 14 game against the Panthers with an ankle injury, and will not return.

Ever injury prone, Moore missed two games earlier this season with a groin issue. He should be considered week to week.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 03:14:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8.

Moore plays the Kam Chancellor role in coach Dan Quinn's Seahawks-style system, primarily aligning in the box but also taking on tight ends in pass coverage. Moore's loss upgrades the fantasy outlook for Bucs players.
Fri, Oct 30, 2015 01:38:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore left Week 7 against Titans with a groin injury.

The Falcons are calling his return questionable. Kemal Ishmael replaced Moore.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 02:15:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore (illness) missed practice on Thursday.

Moore will be expected to suit up as normal on Sunday as the Falcons travel to New York to face the Giants. New HC Dan Quinn has revitalized Moore's fantasy value in IDP leagues following a season-ending shoulder injury last year, using him in a Kam Chancellor role in his defensive scheme. He'll be an upside DB3 play this week.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 11:00:00 AM

Falcons SS William Moore (shoulder) is practicing at OTAs.

Moore had "significant" shoulder surgery in January. Tuesday was his first action of the offseason program, and he'll be ready for the start of training camp. Moore will play the Kam Chancellor position in coach Dan Quinn's defense.
Tue, Jun 9, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore (shoulder surgery) has yet to resume practicing.

Moore underwent a "significant" shoulder operation in January. He'll likely sit out the Falcons' entire offseason program before returning for training camp.
Tue, May 26, 2015 01:31:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore is expected to be ready for camp after undergoing a "significant" shoulder surgery in January.

Moore spent Weeks 5-12 on injured reserve/designated to return with a shoulder injury. He returned for three games before being sent to injured reserve for good late in the season. Moore should return as the Falcons' starting strong safety.
Sat, Mar 7, 2015 10:36:00 AM

Falcons placed SS William Moore on injured reserve with a right-shoulder injury, ending his season.

S Sean Baker has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. The move ends an injury-plagued and ineffective season for the sixth-year pro Moore, as he was limited to 327 snaps by shoulder issues. Moore spent Weeks 5-12 stashed away on injured reserve/designated to return. Although he's going on 30, Moore is signed through 2017. He'll be back as a starter next season, though he could need surgery. Kemal Ishmael will start Sunday's winner-take-all tilt against the Panthers.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 04:45:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore exited Week 16 against the Saints with a shoulder injury.

Moore was on injured reserve/designated to return with a shoulder injury earlier in the season. He is questionable to return.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 03:25:00 PM

Falcons SS William Moore (foot) is active for Week 16 against the Saints.

Moore was limited on Thursday and Friday but will give it a go in the Falcons' most important game of the year. The Falcons declared G Jon Asamoah, QB Sean Renfree, LB Tyler Starr, S Charles Godfrey, CB Ricardo Allen, LB James Anderson and DE Stansly Maponga inactive for Week 16.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:35:00 AM

Falcons activated SS William Moore from the injured reserve-designated for return list.

They waived OT Cameron Bradfield to make room. Moore has been out since Week 4 with a shoulder separation. He should immediately slide back in as Atlanta's starting strong safety. Moore is solid IDP producer when healthy.
