Moore participated in training camp with the Patriots before being claimed by Indianapolis off waivers prior to the 2017 season.
In four seasons with the Colts, Moore has become one of the most active players in the greater Indianapolis community. With a passion to help families and youth, he consistently uses his platform to serve others and be a positive role model. Moore participates in Colts Community Mondays, which is a season-long outreach program in which players participate in activities every Monday. Using their only day off from practice, he and his Colts teammates take time to give back to various non-profit organizations across Indiana. Moore has participated in events at Second Helpings, Wheeler Mission and the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center. He partakes in the Colts Community Ticket Block and provides game tickets to various charitable organizations, including A Kid Again, Indy Police Athletic League and Dream Alive.
A native of Valdosta, Ga., Moore is dedicated to giving back to the community that helped mold him into the man that he is today. During the offseason, he routinely goes back to his hometown to spend time with family and friends. Moore’s mantra is 1ove which means inclusion for all and coming together in love. For the last two years, he has hosted a “Day of 1ove” Community Festival and a free youth football camp in Valdosta. In 2019, Moore pledged $12,500 to Reach Georgia, which is a needs-based scholarship and mentoring program that serves 134 school systems around the state.
