A Sacramento native who attended Fresno State, Moore said his priority will be to establish himself on special teams. As a gunner with the Dolphins, he lined up outside and used his speed to cover punts and kickoffs. Moore, who has eight special-teams tackles the past two years, ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash at his pro day in 2010.
"The 49ers have one of the NFL's top gunners in safety C.J. Spillman. Last year, safety Colin Jones, who starred as a gunner on kickoffs for the 49ers in 2011, was traded to the Panthers.
"For the most part, they know what I'm capable of with my offensive ability and my special-teams ability," Moore said. "If I can come in here and make a name for myself on special teams, first. Then I can come in here and do a lot of work on offense, second. That will help me solidify a spot on this team and that's what I'm looking forward to doing."
Moore could be a candidate to return kicks, which is an area of some uncertainty with Ted Ginn expected to sign elsewhere. At Fresno State, Moore returned 16 kickoffs (22.8 yards per return) and 11 punts (14.6). He returned two kickoffs for 51 yards with Miami in 2010."
