Tracy Moore Signs Free Agent Deal with Bengals
MAY 14, 2014, STILLWATER, OK - Despite not being picked up during the 2014 NFL Draft this weekend, former Oklahoma State wide receiver Tracy Moore is heading to the Cincinnati Bengals under a free agency deal stuck on Wednesday, May 14.
Moore has grabbed the attention of scouts throughout his Oklahoma State career, even being dubbed 'one of the best wide receivers in the country right now' by Texas Longhorns coach Mack Brown. Moore ended his Cowboys run with all-star stats, including 144 receptions, 2.064 yards, 18 touchdowns and 14.3 average yards per reception.
'The contract is a great opportunity for me to prove how hard I've worked,' said Moore. 'I want to show the coaches that while I may not have been selected in the draft, I can be a productive part of a great team. My goal is to prove everyone who's doubted me wrong.'
Moore aims to follow in the NFL footsteps of fellow Cowboys wide receivers, including Justin Blackmon (2012 - 5th pick overall) and Dez Bryant (2010 - 24th pick overall).
Moore's agent Derek Spearman shared his enthusiasm for this opportunity.
'Tracy put up terrific numbers during his time at OK State,' said Spearman. 'He has the work ethic that outmatches any other wide receiver in this year's draft. He more than deserves it a chance in the NFL.'
The Bengals will bring Moore in on Monday next where he'll continue to prepare for his time to shine. The team kicks off their regular season on Monday, September 7 against division rival Baltimore Raves in Baltimore.
