He went undrafted in 2005, he was signed and cut by the Browns, the Saints signed him but thought so little of him they sent him over to NFL Europe. Moore overcame all of that to enjoy nine seasons with the Saints, which included a pivotal role in the team's Super Bowl championship in 2009.
Moore is now trying to revive his career after finding himself on his third team in as many seasons, per ESPN.com.
Moore signed with the Steelers after the Saints released him, but after not being able to establish a role within the Steelers' offense he was released. The
“At this point in the game, I just want to play,” Moore said. “I’m not really exactly looking for the biggest pay day. I’m looking for an opportunity to go in and play and help the team win. Detroit made sense for me for numerous reasons."
Moore has 360 career catches for 4,479 yards and 40 touchdowns in his 10-year career.
Many believed that guard and first-round pick
Not so fast.
Jim Caldwell explained why, praising the 32-year-old Ramirez along the way.
"He's a guy that's certainly going to add some girth and power and experience in the (interior)," Caldwell told MLive.com. "But, also, you can just tell from a leadership standpoint, I mean, he's tremendous. Real solid guy, just a person that's well-rounded, has a good sense of what being a real pro is. ... I think you'll see some of that wear off on some of our younger guys."
Ramirez was a full-time starter with the Broncos in each of the last three seasons.
There isn't much
The 31-year-old, though, wants to prove he can fill the void left by the departure of former
"You definitely miss (Ndamukong) Suh and (Nick) Fairley, but I'm here to try to ease that a little bit," he said. "The guys that have been here are kind of showing the younger guys what it's been about here. I think they're doing a great job and hopefully once I catch on I can continue to push the younger guys along and get some wins."
Ngata, who is in the last year of his current contract, is embracing the different schemes he's been involved in. He's being asked to do a number of different things he didn't do for the last nine seasons as a member of the Ravens.
"I love it," Ngata said. "Just the defense that (Teryl Austin is) running here, it's awesome. It's a change for me. A lot of the attack, penetrate, aggressive defense, it's awesome. I still got to get used to it, but so far I'm loving it."
Ngata recorded 31 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions in 12 games last season.
With Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley gone, there will be a lot of opportunities for defensive tackle
Though it's still early during organized team activities, Reid has impressed coach Jim Caldwell thus far.
"I think he's done a tremendous job just in terms of his approach to it," Caldwell said. "He looks good, increased his strength, his lean muscle has gone up, I mean, the whole gamut. So, hopefully we'll see that translate when we get an opportunity to go out there and go after it."
Reid, a fifth-round pick out of Princeton in 2014, has gotten a majority of the first-team reps during OTA's, which defensive coordinator Teryl Austin says ties back to the hard work he put in during the offseason.
"He's trained really hard, he's in really good shape," Austin said. "He looks good right now. Obviously, we'll have to wait and see once we get to pads where we are, but I like what he's done so far."
Reid appeared in 12 games last season and recorded just two tackles.
The 22-year-old is suffering from a severe case of butter fingers. He dropped at least three well-thrown balls and mishandled a high pass that hit his hands.
Ebron, though, is confident he will work through the drops and expects them to be a thing of the past.
"The one over the middle I shouldn't have dropped. Got down on myself, and it made me drop the next one," Ebron said. "That's just stuff that I've been practicing (to prevent), and I let it get to me.
"But it's Day 2 of OTAs. We're just out there competing. I'll settle down. Today was a bit jittery, but I'll settle down and that'll never happen again."
Ebron caught 25 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown in 13 games last season.
