Claim to Fame: Selected by the Ravens in the sixth round (199th overall) in the 2004 draft. Three-year starter for the Lumberjacks holds school career records with 3,042 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns. Also lettered in indoor track, and won the Big Sky Conference triple jump championship as a sophomore.
If He Doesn't Make It: "Work at Sam's Club?" Moore said with a laugh. "I don't know. I really have no idea. I was a triple jumper, so maybe I'd try to pursue my track career. But this is something that I've focused on, this being my only option. Right now, it's all I got."
Chances of Making the Team: Fair. Moore is part of a group that is battling for the fourth, and possibly final, receiver spot. He is easily the tallest wideout on the team, and has put that advantage to good use. He had a 21-yard catch during Friday's scrimmage.
TE Todd Heap (knee contusion) did not participate in team drills.
Odds and Ends
T Orlando Brown was excused from yesterday's practices because of an illness in his family. Ethan Brooks worked with the first-string offense in his place. . . . Four players who had been limited or held out of practices at times last week returned to the field: CB Gary Baxter (offseason hernia surgery), LB Ed Hartwell (quadriceps), CB Fred Weary (quadriceps) and LB Bart Scott (knee) all participated in full-squad drills. "They have to work back into the flow, especially when you've missed that kind of time, but that's what this week is about," Coach Brian Billick said. . . . QB Kyle Boller was efficient in Friday's scrimmage (10 of 13 for 110 yards) but was intercepted during 11-on-11 drills by rookie free agent LB John Garrett. That prompted one fan to yell, "Boller, what were you thinking of? Wake up!" . . . Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a former Princeton football captain, stopped by the morning practice. . . . Between practices, the Ravens got a look at the popular videogame Madden NFL 2005, which will be available in stores on Thursday. LB Terrell Suggs squared off against Moore, with Suggs taking the Ravens and Moore taking the Dolphins. There was one rather surreal moment: A Raven sacked Miami QB Jay Fiedler, but Suggs had no idea which player was responsible for the sack. "Who's that?" Suggs cried, as he zoomed in for a replay, only to find that the player responsible was . . . Suggs. . . . The Ravens have adopted new screening procedures at M&T Bank Stadium that will go into effect at Thursday's preseason game. All fans, employees and media members will be subject to a modified "pat-down" before entering the stadium, and Ravens officials are advising fans to arrive earlier than they have in the past. Fans are allowed to bring binoculars, cameras and video cameras along with small purses, diaper bags, blankets and tarps, flags and banners, coats and jackets, and medical supplies. Backpacks and tote bags of any size are prohibited, as are coolers, camera cases, large purses, bottles and cans, and umbrellas.
