Rob Moore was a wide receiver from Syracuse drafted by the Jets with their supplemental first round choice in 1990.  A physical specimen, Moore, was 6″3′, 202 lbs, had solid hands and speed. Over 10 seasons he’d play for the Jets and Cardinals, notching a career high 97 catches in 1997 and going over 900 yards 6 times in his career. Moore would go to the Pro Bowl in 1994 and 1997, with the latter also having him named All-Pro. After football he’d spend time coaching receivers in junior college, broadcasting Cardinal games for ESPN and finally landing a job as the wide receivers coach back home at Syracuse in 2010, where he still holds many record and career marks and is beloved for his 80 yard grab and dash against Penn State in 1987 as a Freshman. Moore is from my ‘golden age’ of football as I love the Action Packed Rookies series of that time frame. When I located Rob, I did not hesitate to send him out a few cards.
