  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Limited to one catch Sunday

    Moore brought in his only target for 11 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Moore couldn't quite replicate his showing from Tampa Bay's wild-card win over the Eagles, when he posted two receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown. The veteran was mostly an afterthought this season after spending a sizable chunk of the campaign on the practice squad, and the five receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown he produced across seven regular-season appearances were his first stats from scrimmage since the 2020 season. Moore is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and could potentially return on a team-friendly deal if he finds a lack of interest in his services on the open market.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Shines in wild-card win Monday

    Moore secured two of three targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night.

    The veteran was one of two Buccaneers to parlay some impressive run-after-catch prowess into a score, outrunning multiple defenders to the end zone on a 44-yard touchdown grab late in the first quarter. Moore had a nice chunk gain on his other reception as well, and the Lions may have to devote some attention to him in Sunday's divisional-round clash at Ford Field.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Quiet in season finale

    Moore brought in his only target for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    Moore played his usual deep reserve role, logging only one more snap from scrimmage (17) than he did for special teams (16). Moore flashed with a 2-68-1 line in Week 15, but he didn't appear in a regular-season contest until Week 12 and wrapped up the campaign with five receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown on seven targets over seven games. Moore does have postseason experience from his days with the Seahawks early in his career, but he'll likely remain slotted into the No. 4 receiver role during Tampa Bay's wild-card matchup against the Eagles on Monday night.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Disappointing after Week 15 surge

    Moore secured his only target for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 30-12 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

    Moore encouragingly saw an uptick in snaps from scrimmage to a season-high 22, but he still was minimally involved from a target perspective. The 28-year-old does have the type of track record to suggest he could see his numbers improve on any given week, but he'll remain a complementary option for the Buccaneers if Mike Evans and Chris Godwin remain in good health for the final two games of the campaign.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Impressive TD in win

    Moore brought in both targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday.

    The veteran journeyman recorded his first touchdown since 2020 on a nifty 52-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter that sealed the game for the Buccaneers. Moore was added to the active roster earlier in the week after the team used up his three practice-squad elevations, and given the knack for the end zone he displayed early in his career with the Seahawks, the seven-year pro could be a surprise contributor down the stretch if he sees enough snaps.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Headed for active roster

    Moore was signed to the Buccaneers' 53-man roster from their practice squad Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Moore was running out of practice squad elevation opportunities after being promoted for Tampa Bay's last three games. The 28-year-old has one catch for 11 yards on two targets with 32 offensive snaps in that span. He should operate as the team's No. 4 or 5 option at wide receiver in the final weeks of the season.

  • David Moore: Headed back to practice squad

    The Buccaneers reverted Moore to the practice squad Monday.

    Moore was elevated for the third straight game and managed to haul in his lone target for 11 yards while playing a season-high 25 snaps (14 on offense, 11 on special teams). Because this was the third time the Bucs called Moore up from the Moore has now been elevated the maximum three times, the team will have to sign the 2017 seventh-round pick to the active roster if they wish to utilize him again during the 2023 campaign.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Called up for third time

    The Buccaneers elevated Moore from the practice squad Saturday, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

    This is the third straight game Moore has been promoted from the practice squad, which means the Bucs would have to sign him to their active roster if they wanted to play him for the rest of the season. Moore hasn't registered a catch in his two appearances this season and his split has limited snaps between offense and special teams.

  • David Moore: Returns to practice squad

    Moore reverted to Tampa Bay's practice squad Monday.

    Moore was active for Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers, failing to record a stat while playing 11 snaps between the offense and the special-teams unit. The wide receiver will now wait for his next chance to appear in a game with Tampa Bay.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Elevated Saturday

    The Buccaneers elevated Moore to their active roster Saturday.

    Tampa Bay elevated both Moore and Ryan Miller on Saturday, which could be a sign that the team is preparing to be without Chris Godwin (neck) in Sunday's contest. Moore has appeared in one game for the Buccaneers this season, playing a total of 21 snaps (11 offensive and 10 on special teams).

  • David Moore: Reverts to practice squad

    Moore reverted to Tampa Bay's practice squad Monday.

    Moore saw playing time on both offense and special teams but failed to haul in his only target in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Colts. The 2017 seventh-round pick will now wait for his next opportunity to be elevated for a game.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Promoted from practice squad

    The Buccaneers elevated Moore to the active roster Saturday.

    Moore joined the Bucs' practice squad Aug. 30 after being cut by the team one day prior ahead of the 53-man roster deadline. The 2017 seventh-round pick last played in 2021, when he appeared in three games -- two with the Broncos and one with the Packers.

  • David Moore: Gets practice squad opportunity

    The Buccaneers signed Moore to their practice squad Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Moore was surprisingly left off the 53-man roster Tuesday despite a solid preseason in which he recorded eight receptions for 123 yards. The veteran will reside on the practice squad for the time being, and he serves as a solid insurance policy in case any of the trio of young players that beat him out for roster spots -- Trey Palmer, Deven Thompkins and Rakim Jarrett -- don't prove up to the task once the regular season begins.

  • David Moore: Cut by Tampa Bay

    The Buccaneers released Moore on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Moore put together a respectable 8-123-0 line on 12 targets in three preseason games, but the six-year veteran lost out on a depth wide receiver spot to 2023 sixth-round pick Trey Palmer, Deven Thompkins and rookie UDFA Rakim Jarrett. Moore's last impactful season came in 2020 with the Seahawks when he registered 35 catches for 417 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games. He'll look to catch on elsewhere once he clears waivers.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Solid finish to preseason

    Moore secured three of four targets for 39 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night.

    Moore was the runner-up in receptions and receiving yards on the night for the Buccaneers while also tying for second in targets. Additionally, the veteran journeyman's 25 snaps were behind only Rakim Jarrett's 32 with respect to Tampa Bay's wideouts. Moore's 8-123-0 line on 12 targets over three exhibitions seemingly locks him into a reserve receiver role, although whether the coaching staff will opt to go with him or a pair of faster but less experienced players in Deven Thompkins or rookie Trey Palmer in the No. 3 receiver job remains to be seen.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Pair of catches in preseason win

    Moore secured two of four targets for 18 yards and fumbled once but recovered in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night. He also returned one punt for no gain.

    Moore had a relatively quiet night overall while the player who might well be his primary competition for the No. 3 receiver job, Trey Palmer, flashed again with a 33-yard touchdown grab. However, the veteran, who led the team in targets, was reasonably productive overall, and given his experience edge over Palmer, Moore could potentially emerge as the victor in the job battle if he puts together an impressive enough effort in Saturday night's home preseason finale against the Ravens.

  • Buccaneers' David Moore: Could benefit from Gage injury

    Moore could be in line for increased snaps and targets in the wake of the season-ending knee injury Russell Gage suffered in a joint practice with the Jets on Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler and Jenna Laine of ESPN.com report.

    Gage logged 70 targets, including 18 in the red zone, over 13 regular-season games last season, although that also came with Tom Brady at quarterback and both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin missing games due to injury. Nevertheless, Moore, who recorded three catches for 66 yards on four targets over 24 snaps in the preseason-opening loss to the Steelers, is now poised to benefit to some degree if he sticks on the active roster. Moore may arguably even have the inside track to the No. 3 receiver role vacated by Gage; despite the fact he hasn't caught a regular-season pass since 2020, he's still exponentially more experienced than his presumptive primary competitors for the job, rookie Trey Palmer and second-year pros Deven Thompkins and Kaylon Geiger.
