Saints CB Sterling Moore (abdomen) isn't expected to play Week 8 against the Seahawks.
Moore has been one of the Saints' better cover men since signing ahead of Week 1. B.W. Webb will now get the start opposite Ken Crawley, with De'Vante Harris likely to see snaps as the No. 3 corner. This presents a prime opportunity for the Seahawks' offense to get right in a dream spot at the Superdome. Wed, Oct 26, 2016 12:39:00 PM

Saints signed CB Sterling Moore.

Moore didn't survive final cuts in Buffalo. He's a piece of experienced depth for a cornerback corps that has very little of it.

Bills released CB Sterling Moore.

Moore, 26, was competing for the slot job in Buffalo after starting nine games for the Bucs last season. Nickell Robey is expected to man the slot now.

Bills signed CB Sterling Moore, formerly of the Bucs, to a one-year contract.

The ex-Cowboy started nine games in Tampa last season. He was workmanlike in the slot. Moore also has plenty of experience on the boundary, but the inside is where he will try to carve out a role in Buffalo.

Pewter Report expects the Bucs to move on from impending free agent CB Sterling Moore.

Moore became a surprise starter for midway through last season as the Bucs tried to shake up their secondary. He played well in the starting role and is only 26. If Tampa does decide to move on, Moore will find interest on the open market.

Bucs agreed to terms with CB Sterling Moore, formerly of the Cowboys, on a one-year contract.

Moore had also visited the Steelers and 49ers. Moore played both inside and out as a cornerback for the Cowboys last season, but also has experience at safety. He's best suited to the slot. Moore has a leg up on Leonard Johnson for No. 3 cornerback duties. He'll be on the field plenty in 2015.

Free agent CB Sterling Moore will visit the 49ers on Wednesday.

That's if he escapes his Tuesday Steelers visit without a contract. Moore turned in 752 largely solid snaps for the Cowboys last season.

Free agent CB Sterling Moore will visit the Steelers on Tuesday.

Given how horrendous the Steelers' corner play was last season (the secondary gave up the sixth-most passing yards in the NFL), it's surprising they haven't addressed it already. Plenty of big names came and went while the Steelers stood idly by. Moore is a competent backup, but he won't move the needle much. The secondary figures to be a focus during the draft.

Free agent CB Sterling Moore is visiting the Buccaneers.

Henry Melton mentioned this in his introductory press conference. Moore and Melton were teammates in Dallas. Moore started seven games for the Cowboys last season, finishing the year with 46 tackles and two fumble recoveries. He'd fit in as a nickelback or a backup corner in Tampa Bay.

The Cowboys will not tender CB Sterling Moore, making him an unrestricted free agent.

He was a restricted free agent. Moore can play perimeter corner, slot corner, and even some safety, but does none of those things at a starting-caliber level. Still, he will draw interest due to his youth (25 years old) and versatility.

Cowboys re-signed CB Sterling Moore.

TE Andre Smith was waived in a corresponding roster move. With Morris Claiborne (hamstring) ruled out for Thursday's game against the Raiders, Moore provides an extra body at the back end of Dallas' secondary. He was waived at final cuts.

Cowboys CB Sterling Moore had surgery on his left knee, but is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs.

Moore appeared in 13 games this past season, eight with the Patriots and five with the Cowboys. He recorded 22 tackles and two passes defended while playing limited snaps on defense. Moore can play both safety and corner.

Cowboys signed CB Sterling Moore off the Patriots' practice squad.

Last year's Patriots playoff hero for breaking up a would-be Lee Evans TD in the AFC Championship Game, Moore was a scapegoat for New England's early-season pass defense woes. He's versatile enough to play three defensive back spots.

Patriots waived DB Sterling Moore.

The Pats' nickel back, Moore's the first scapegoat for New England's abysmal pass defense even though he's graded out neutrally in Pro Football Focus' coverage ratings. A hero in last year's playoffs, Moore may not slip through waivers unclaimed.
