UT's Moore, Herbert get deals

Two former University of Toledo football players have signed undrafted free-agent deals with NFL teams.

Wide receiver Nick Moore has signed with the Minnesota Vikings, and safety Tyrrell Herbert has signed with the Buffalo Bills.

In 2008 Moore led the Rockets with 78 catches and had 779 receiving yards with one touchdown. He started all four years for UT and had eight touchdown receptions in 2007.

Moore, 6-foot-4, 193 pounds out of Westerville, Ohio, is fourth on UT's all-time receiving list with 182 catches.

His brother, New Orleans Saints receiver Lance Moore, is first.

Last season Herbert led the team with four interceptions, including a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in UT's victory over Michigan. A 6-foot-2, 201-pound Pittsburgh native, Herbert forced two fumbles and was third on the team with 79 tackles in 2008. He was a three-year starter at free safety for the Rockets and a two-year captain.

"I'm very excited," Herbert said. "I'm going to do my best to make the team. Hopefully, I'll be sticking around."

Both will participate in rookie minicamps with their teams this weekend.
