Bills signed WR Denarius Moore.
Moore spent the summer with the Bengals after spending the first four years of his career in Oakland. The soon-to-be 27-year-old has blazing speed, but had bad practice habits and drop issues with the Raiders. He caught just one pass for 30 yards in the preseason. Moore will fill a deep reserve role with the Bills. Oct 7 - 10:01 AM

Bengals release WR Denarius Moore.

There was some hope Moore could revive his career under Bengals OC Hue Jackson, who coach him to his best season in 2011. He was unimpressive in OTAs and minicamp, however, and has done next to nothing this preseason. Releasing Moore this early in the process will at least give him a shot to latch on with another team. Bengals also released/waived DT Kwame Geathers, LB Nico Johnson, DE Sam Montgomery, G Chris Jasperse, WR Desmond Lawrence and TE John Peters.

According to, the team was "hoping to see more" from Denarius Moore this offseason.

Moore's roster odds have improved with James Wright (knee) headed to injured reserve, but he was apparently unimpressive in OTAs and minicamp. It's troubling news for a wideout who has never lacked for physical skills. If Moore can't revive his career under OC Hue Jackson, who coached him to his best season in 2011, it's probably never going to happen.
Jul 28 - 3:49 PM

Bengals agreed to terms with WR Denarius Moore, formerly of the Raiders, on a one-year contract.

The deal reunites Moore with OC Hue Jackson, who was his rookie-year coach in Oakland. It was under Jackson that Moore had his best season, and looked to be a future difference maker. Moore's game steadily went downhill from 2012-14, however, with the Raiders making zero effort to keep him this offseason. Moore has the physical ability to be a playmaker down field, but has been wildly inconsistent, and prone to nicks and bruises. Reuniting with Jackson keeps him on the radar in dynasty leagues, but expectations should be low. Moore has the inside track on No. 4 duties in Cincinnati.
Apr 6 - 1:32 PM

Free agent WR Denarius Moore is visiting the Bengals on Thursday.

It's Moore's second-known visit after he checked in with the Jets two weeks ago. The Bengals need depth behind an injury-riddled Marvin Jones, especially with Mohamed Sanu coming off a shaky 2014.
Apr 2 - 1:43 PM

Free agent WR Denarius Moore will visit the Jets on Thursday.

The Jets are the first team to show interest in Moore, who was held to just 12 catches after falling out of favor with the Raiders last year. In New York, he could add a speed complement behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Moore is Rotoworld's No. 5 remaining free-agent wideout.
Mar 18 - 6:04 PM

A source informed ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson that there's no chance Oakland re-signs free agent WR Denarius Moore.

Moore, an Al Davis draft pick in 2011, fell out of favor in Oakland under ex-coach Dennis Allen due to consistency and work-ethic issues. He caught just 12 passes for 115 scoreless yards last season on 237 snaps. Moore is still just 26 and has blazing speed, but has had a dead-silent market to this point.
Mar 16 - 8:22 PM

Denarius Moore (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Denver.

Moore wraps his fourth NFL season with 12 catches for 115 yards and zero touchdowns in 10 games, tumbling down the depth chart. The one-time intriguing deep threat will have to settle for a non-guaranteed contract in free agency. The rest of the Raiders inactives: WR Vincent Brown, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB TJ Carrie, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson and DT Stacy McGee.

Raiders declared WR Denarius Moore, WR Vincent Brown, CM Chimdi Chekwa, OG Tony Bergstrom, OT Menelik Watson, TE Brian Leonhardt, and DT Stacy McGee inactive for Week 16 against the Bills.

Moore hurt his ankle and knee a couple weeks ago at the team hotel. Brown has a groin injury. CB D.J. Hayden (back) is active despite being questionable.

Raiders declared WR Denarius Moore, LB Sio Moore, TE Brian Leonhardt, QB Matt McGloin, OT Menelik Watson, DL Stacy McGee and OL Tony Bergstrom inactive for Week 15 against the Chiefs.

Denarius Moore injured his knee and ankle stumbling down the stairs at the Raiders' hotel last Sunday. Sio Moore (hip), Watson (foot/ankle) and Leonhardt (concussion) were ruled out before Sunday and should be considered week to week. The rest are healthy scratches.

Denarius Moore is sidelined with ankle and knee issues he suffered falling down the stairs at the Raiders' team hotel in Week 14.

Unbelievable. Moore has simply become snakebitten, though he hasn't helped his own cause. Moore has just 12 catches through 10 games this season, and has twice been a healthy scratch. An impending free agent, Moore is highly unlikely to be back with the Raiders in 2015.

Denarius Moore is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 13 game at St. Louis.

Moore has been active the last two games, but hasn't seen an offensive snap. He's in Tony Sparano's doghouse after muffing a punt against the Chiefs two Thursdays ago. The rest of the Raiders inactives: QB Matt McGloin, RB Latavius Murray, CB Neiko Thorpe, S Jonathan Dowling, G Tony Bergstrom and G Stacy McGee.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 11:50:00 AM

Denarius Moore secured his lone target for 13 yards in Week 7 against the Cardinals.

Now rotating with Brice Butler behind Andre Holmes and James Jones, Moore made a third-quarter appearance on a 13-yard reception. Dynasty owners can consider holding Moore because he is an impending free agent and might land somewhere better next year, but he obviously carries zero re-draft value.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 07:43:00 PM

Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano stated Wednesday that Denarius Moore now has a "clean slate."

Moore was deservedly scratched in Week 4 after dropping a game-ending pass in Week 3 that Vince Wilfork intercepted. On the season, Moore has pathetically managed 60 scoreless yards on 20 targets. Until something changes, we're considering Moore the Raiders' No. 4 receiver behind Andre Holmes, James Jones, and Vincent Brown. Brice Butler also ran ahead of Moore before the bye.

Denarius Moore is a healthy scratch for Week 4.

Even for the talent-deficient Raiders, Moore hasn't played well enough this season to be active. In an indication of just how far he's fallen, he's a healthy scratch even with Rod Streater (foot) sidelined. James Jones and Andre Holmes will start in London. Holmes is a nice WR4/5 sleeper for Week 4.
