Although never reaching his full potential in New York, Rob Moore became an exciting weapon at the wide receiver position for the New York Jets.

New York Jets: Where Are They Now? Rob Moore


Today’s edition of “Where Are They Now?” brings us to another player on the offensive side of the football. He was chosen in the Supplemental Draft, and went on to play for the Jets and the Cardinals before his career came to an end after the 2001 season.

He’s a New Yorker through and through, born on Long Island, and attending Syracuse University before coming to the Jets. Spotlight today is on WR Rob Moore.

THEN

Rob Moore was chosen in the first round of the 1990 Supplemental Draft. For those of you who don’t know, the supplemental draft is basically used to accommodate players that weren’t able to enter the regular draft. Terrell Pryor is an example of a player chosen in the supplemental draft. Moore spent 1990-1994 with the Jets before moving to the Arizona Cardinals. Here are his career NFL stats:
