Free agent CB Sterling Moore worked out for the Lions on Thursday.

He also worked out for the Colts on Tuesday. Moore has a connection to Lions GM Bob Quinn, who was a scout for the Patriots during his tenure with New England. The 27-year-old was let go by the Saints last week.

Saints released CB Sterling Moore.

Moore had an up-and-down 2016 but was easily the Saints' best corner last year. He suffered a pectorals injury in Week 2 and hasn't played since. New Orleans has a new No. 1 corner in first-rounder Marshon Lattimore. Moore is 27 and can play in the slot and outside. He should get another shot.

Saints CB Sterling Moore suffered a pectoral injury in the Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

The team is still trying to determine the severity of the injury. Moore is the Saints' No. 3 corner and was the team's highest-graded cover man by Pro Football Focus last season. They can ill afford to lose Moore.

Saints re-signed CB Sterling Moore to a one-year contract.

Pulled off the scrap heap before Week 1, Moore was forced into heavy 2016 snaps. He provided steady, if far from spectacular, play. Ideally, the 27-year-old would be the Saints' No. 4 cornerback in 2017.

Free agent CB Sterling Moore wants to re-sign with the Saints.

He says the interest is mutual. Signed just ahead of Week 1 as depth, Moore ended up leading all Saints corners in snaps and received the best coverage grade of the group from Pro Football Focus, though he was still 71st in the league among 120 qualifiers. Moore won't command much on the open market.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 2, 2016 11:47:00 AM

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.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 01:40:00 PM

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.
