Kyle Moore Could Help Out Rookie Tackles

August 4th, 2010

Last year was pretty much a wasted year for Bucs defensive end Kyle Moore. The rookie out of USC was hurt off and on and as a result Moore could rarely be found in uniform.

A Kyle Moore sighting on the field was about as rare as a spotting of Sasquatch.

This year may be a very different story. Now in the same type of defense since the end of the heinous Jim Bates Experiment and seemingly healthy, Moore appears to be making headway. At least, that’s the point made by eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune as he posted from training camp this afternoon on the TBO Bucs Twitter feed.

DE Kyle Moore keeps making plays out here in the heat. At this point, he looks like the starter on the left side.

This is encouraging. Until today, just about all the talk of the Bucs defensive linemen was the rampage that rookie defensive tackle Brian Price has been on.

It would help the rookie tackles immeasurably if the Bucs can bring heat from the defensive end position. If Moore can live up to his success at USC, this could be significant for the Bucs.

    Went to camp on saturday and during live oline vs dline snaps Kyle absolutely shotgunned some olineman. Serious power from the dude.

    I look forward to watching this guy kill it this year.

  2. Gary Says:

    Moore and white need to bring it this year, they will have to make up for what is sure to be inconsistent play from the DTs.

    I really don’t understand why they didn’t keep Wilkerson around!! He was a solid DE for us and they really don’t have a sure replacement for him.

  4. The D Says:

    The reason we dropped Wilk was because of his knee. The Saints grabbed him, but then re-signed Bobby McCray after they had already cut him because Wilk’s knee isnt ready, is what im guessing.
