Buccaneers Sign Free Agent CB Sterling Moore

You can scratch another free agent defensive back off of your Pittsburgh Steelers want list as former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Sterling Moore has now agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Jenna Laine of Sports Talk Florida.

Laine reports that Moore signed a one-year deal that can potentially total out $1.525 million.

Moore, a former undrafted free agent out of SMU, visited with the Steelers on Monday before visiting with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday.

Moore, who originally entered the league in 2011 with the Oakland Raiders, started seven games last season for the Cowboys. The undersized slot cornerback registered 46 total tackles in 2014 to go along with 12 passes defenses and one forced fumble.

Moore is probably best known right now as being the New England Patriots defensive back who knocked the ball out of the hands of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans in the end zone on second down with 27 seconds left to go in the 2011 AFC Championship Game. On the very next play, Moore knocked down another pass intended for Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta just short of the goal line. Those two plays wound up leading to a Patriots win and the right to play in Super Bowl XLVI as Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field goal that would of tied the game on the ensuing fourth down.

Moore has played in a total of 30 regular-season games during his career.
