He finished fifth team history in receptions, seventh in receiving yardage, fourth in touchdown receptions, eighth in total touchdowns (39) and ninth in 100-yard receiving games.No Saint who went undrafted recorded as many receptions, receiving yards or touchdowns as Moore.

His best season was 2012 when he finished with 65 receptions, 1041 yards and six touchdowns. After leaving the Saints, Moore played for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014 and the Detroit Lions in 2015.
