DETROIT (BVM) – Former All-Pro wide receiver Herman Moore made his name with the Detroit Lions during his 12-year NFL career. He was a record-setting wideout among the league’s best during the 1990s. Moore called time on his career in late 2002. Where is he now?
The 6-foot-4 star from Danville, Virginia, stayed close to home in Charlottesville while attending the University of Virginia. In his freshman year of 1988, Moore tallied 466 yards and four TDs. And he averaged 19.4 yards a catch, enough to lead the ACC.
The following season he logged 848 receiving yards and 10 TDs. Moore bumped his average to 23.6 yards per catch in 1989. He would lead the ACC once again. The following year he posted 1,190 yards receiving with 13 TDs. That earned him a 1990 consensus All-America award. Over his career as a Cavalier, Moore totaled 2,504 yds and 27 receiving TDs.
Detroit chose him in the first round (No. 10 overall) of the 1991 NFL Draft. Moore went on to have a stellar run with the Lions. No other wide receiver had put together three consecutive years with 100 receptions until Moore did (1995-97). He set an NFL season mark in 1995 as he caught 123 passes. And he topped 100 catches (104) again two years later.
Moore earned four consecutive Pro Bowl bids (1994-97) and claimed three straight first-team All-Pro awards (1995-97). In 11 years with the pride he recorded 670 catches for 9,174 yards and 62 TDs, What’s more, he played on six playoff teams with the Lions during the ’90s. They reached at least 10 wins in three seasons, along with two division crowns.
Lions fans love Herman Moore, but is there a more underrated guy league wide. He should get some hall of fame attention, but I never hear his name mentioned. Moore was an absolute stud. pic.twitter.com/52uddRwRDH

No. 84 notched one quick stop with the New York Giants and retired from the NFL in December 2002.
Away from the field
Away from the field, he’s the founder and CEO of Team 84. It is a metro Detroit-based holding company with features such as production to business advertising and marketing tied in together.
Just recently, Moore struck a business deal with Eagle Casino & Sports. That includes a series of appearances during select NFL games at Soaring Eagle Casino And Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. In addition, he will appear in TV ads for the Lions.
He’s married to his wife Angela and they have two sons. And of course, the Detroit area is where they call home.
