Bills sign DE Moore; elevate DB Nesbitt

Posted Nov 15, 2011

After losing a pair of players on their active roster for the remainder of the season, the Bills set about filling those vacancies Tuesday. Buffalo signed DE Kyle Moore filling the void left by LB Chris White, who went on injured reserve with a torn ACL Monday.

Moore has spent the entire 2011 season on the Detroit Lions practice squad after he was released by Tampa Bay during final cuts on Sept. 2nd.

A former fourth-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, Moore (6’6” 272) appeared 15 games for the club including seven starts in 2010. The defensive end logged 29 tackles, six quarterback pressures and a pair of fumble recoveries before a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve in Week 13.

As a rookie Moore registered 14 tackles, three quarterback pressures and a pass breakup.

The USC product was a two-year starter for the Trojans compiling 76 tackles with 13 for loss, seven sacks, two interceptions and eight pass breakups.

Moore will wear jersey number 94.

Nesbitt called up
The Bills also filled the roster opening left by Eric Wood’s move to I-R by elevating defensive back Josh Nesbitt from the team’s practice squad. Nesbitt (6’1” 215), a former college quarterback at Georgia Tech, was an undrafted rookie signed by Buffalo this summer.

The former option quarterback began training camp as a signal caller before switching over to the defensive side of the ball where he’s lined up as a safety. Nesbitt now gives Buffalo five safeties on their active roster.
