Acquired:
Nick was originally signed by the Lions in 2010 as part of the CFL’s practice roster expansion period. Following three seasons with the Leos, Nick signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He re-signed with the Lions as a free agent on February 11, 2016 and also signed another extension for the 2017 season in February.

 

Highlights:
2017: Despite appearing in only 12 games, Nick was the third leading receiver on the team in 2017. He hauled in 37 passes for 521 yards with two touchdowns. Nick averaged 14.8 yards per reception and the lanky wideout earned CFL Player of the Week honours after snagging 10 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown during a win against the Tiger Cats in Hamilton. Moore’s 220 yards represented career high for yards in a  single game.

 

2016: Off to a terrific start during his second stint of service with the club, Nick recorded 15 receptions for 205 yards and a touchdown before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Regina on July 16.

 

2014-2015: Nick appeared in 24 games over two seasons for the ‘Bombers after being signed as a free agent in 2014. He tallied 120 receptions for 1,452 yards and four touchdowns during his time in Winnipeg.

 

2011-2013: Nick joined the Lions as a free agent in 2011 and appeared in five games that year picking up five receptions for 50 yards. In 2012, he saw action in seven games notching 32 catches for 399 yards and three majors. By the 2013 season, Nick was a fixture on offence for the Leos and enjoyed a career year with 73 catches for 1,105 yards, six touchdowns and four 100-yards performances.

 

College:
2005-2008: Moore was a two-time All-MAC selection and led the Rockets as a senior with 78 receptions in 2008, including a then-Mid-American Conference record 20 catches and 162 yards in a 13-10 upset win over Michigan. He finished his four-year career with 182 catches, putting him fourth on UT’s all-time list.

 

Personal:
Nick makes his off-season home in Tampa, Florida and keeps up his training with plenty of pick-up basketball. Nick also loves to travel and take in as many movies as possible. Coming from an athletic family, Nick’s dad is a karate instructor and his brother, Lance, has spent a number of years in the NFL with New Orleans  and Detroit. Nick is proudest of his 20-reception outing for Toledo in 2008 during the school’s win at Michigan which not only equaled a conference record but set a new standard for the ‘Big House’ in Ann Arbor. Earning a Sports Management degree, Nick sees himself involved in professional sports at some level when his playing days are over.
