The undrafted pass-catcher out of Toledo joined the Saints in 2006 after spending his rookie season as a free-agent addition with the Browns. Over the past two seasons, Moore operated as a role player for the Steelers and Lions before signing with the Falcons last week. Projected to push Justin Hardy for snaps in the slot, Moore was a long shot to make Atlanta’s roster.
He won’t be crowned in Canton, but Moore enjoyed the kind of career plenty of NFL players would be thrilled with: 10-plus seasons, a highlight reel of big plays, a Super Bowl ring and the chance to team with one of the game’s finest quarterbacks in Brees. Moore has plenty to look back on.
Last week, Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon introduced a child into the world, and named him Brady.
Brady was born on August 3, which just so happens to be the same day four-time Super Bowl championship quarterback Tom Brady was born 39 years ago. It seems likely that the Glennons named their child after the Patriots quarterback, because, well, it just makes sense.
The Glennon camp is denying these allegations, but a certain teammate provides some interesting insight.
“Mike said he didn’t name it after Brady,” Jameis Winston told MMQB on Saturday. “But I know he was hoping that baby was born on Tom Brady’s birthday. I know that for a fact.”
The Cowboys were excited about undrafted rookie wide receiver Andy Jones in the spring, and he has done nothing to disappoint so far in training camp. He won’t crack the top three spots held by Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley, but considering the time Tony Romo is putting in with Jones, you can see the veteran quarterback likes what he sees. Jones is not the fastest, but he can create separation and does not drop any passes. “It’s not too big for him,” said executive vice president Stephen Jones. “And certainly all you have to do, he’s one of those that you look at in a uniform and go, ‘Wow.’ That’s pretty good and then he goes and plays and it’s still really good.” — Todd Archer

Quarterback Eli Manning is having a strong training camp. It has been 11 days since his last interception, and with star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. back after missing several days with a leg injury, the offense has really been humming. Manning and Beckham tore up the defense Monday. On Tuesday, the defense will be in search of a little redemption after a rough few days. — Jordan Raanan
