A second-round draft pick out of Oklahoma in 1973, Moore played 13 seasons for the Saints from 1973-1985 and he ranks ninth all-time in games played with 170 in franchise history. Moore earned Pro Bowl honors in 1983. Moore is a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.

Moore, who was inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame in 1991, will be available for autographs and pictures.

The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is located at Gate B on the Plaza level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The museum is open for all Saints home games two hours prior to game time and for 45 minutes following each game. Those holding tickets to each game are admitted free on game day.
