Career highlights and awards

Marty Moore (born March 19, 1971) is a former professional American football player who played linebacker for eight seasons for the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns. Moore was the first Mr. Irrelevant ever to play in a Super Bowl (Super Bowl XXXI).[1] He also became the first Mr. Irrelevant to win a Super Bowl (Super Bowl XXXVI).

Moore did not play in Super Bowl XXXVI because he was on injured reserve due to a torn Achilles tendon earlier in the season. Because of this, Moore is not the first Mr. Irrelevant to both play in and win a Super Bowl, with that achievement going to placekicker Ryan Succop. Succop was the Mr. Irrelevant of the 2009 NFL Draft, and was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting kicker in their Super Bowl LV championship over the Kansas City Chiefs, which was coincidentally the team that drafted him. Moore played high school football for Highlands High in Fort Thomas, Kentucky and college football at the University of Kentucky, playing in the 1993 Peach Bowl and becoming the final pick in the 1994 NFL Draft after his senior season.
