Dave Moore: Pro Bowler!

Jan 25, 2007 -

Over the course of 15 seasons and 220 regular-season games, Dave Moore has visited virtually every outpost in the National Football League. The one missing location on the map of his football travels: Honolulu, Hawaii.

That, of course, is where the league plays its annual all-star game, the Pro Bowl.

And that is where Dave Moore will be spending the week that follows Super Bowl XLI. On Thursday, the NFL announced that Moore had been added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster and will serve as the team’s long-snapper during the Feb. 11 game.

Each year, the coaching staffs of the two Pro Bowl teams are allowed to add one “need” player each to their rosters. If the elected roster already includes a long-snapper, the need player must be a defensive lineman, linebacker or defensive back. If the elected roster does not include a long-snapper, then one must be added as the need player.

This year, the NFC Pro Bowl team will be coached by the New Orleans Saints staff, and Head Coach Sean Payton chose to add Moore, one of the most experienced tight end/long-snappers in NFL history. Moore has handled all of the Buccaneers’ deep-snapping chores for the past three seasons and, barring his two years as a Buffalo Bill (2002-03), for much of his career.

Tampa Bay will now have two players in the Pro Bowl, as Moore joins teammate Ronde Barber, who will start at cornerback for the NFC. Barber will be playing in his fourth all-star game and his third in a row. First alternates Derrick Brooks and Torrie Cox (special teamer) could still be added to the roster if selected players at their positions are unable to attend the game for any reason.

Only two tight ends have played more NFL games than Moore: Trey Junkin (281) and Pete Metzelaars (239). Moore has played 190 of his 220 games as a Buccaneer; he appeared in 30 games for the Bills, catching 23 passes for 223 yards.

While his primary work in his second stint with the Buccaneers has been the long-snapping job, Moore also still sees occasional action on offense in multiple-TE sets. During his first stretch as a Buccaneer, from 1992-2001, Moore developed into one of the most prolific pass-catchers in team history.

His 184 receptions as a Buccaneer rank third all-time among franchise tight ends after Jimmie Giles’ 279 and Ron Hall’s 209. Moore also ranks fourth in team history in receiving touchdowns and eighth in total touchdowns, with 24. His ratio of one touchdown for every 7.7 receptions is the best in Buc annals among players with at least 50 catches.

Moore becomes just the second tight end in team history to earn a Pro Bowl berth, and the first since Giles went to the game in 1985, the last of his four all-star trips. Moore is the first Buccaneer to be chosen for the Pro Bowl as a long-snapper, and just the third special teams performer to earn an invitation, joining kicker Martin Gramatica (2000) and punter Josh Bidwell (2005).

Awww, man that's awesome.

So glad he gets to make the trip, as this appears to be pretty much his swan song this year.

Congrats, Dave!
