College career

At Mississippi State University, Moulds caught 117 passes for 2,022 yards (averaging 17.1 per catch). Moulds was the 1994 NCAA Division I-A kickoff return champion with a 32.8 yrds/return average.[1]

Professional career

Buffalo Bills

In 1998, Moulds led all AFC receivers with 1,368 receiving yards.

In the playoffs Moulds had a team record 240 yards against the Miami Dolphins, though he lost a fumble on the Bills' first play, a 65-yard pass from Flutie. Buffalo lost 24-17.

Since then, Moulds established himself as one of the premier receivers in football, amassing 675 career receptions (as of the end of 2005) and has been selected to three Pro Bowls.

Houston Texans

On April 4, 2006, Moulds was traded to the Houston Texans, in exchange for their fifth round draft pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

On February 28, 2007, Moulds was released from the Texans after a disappointing 2006 season. After his release, Moulds criticized then-Texans QB David Carr by saying "The quarterback has to show that he can carry (the team)."

Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans signed Moulds on July 25, 2007 [2], and at the beginning of the season he had earned a starting position. That season, he played in all 16 games, having the 4th most receptions on his team, 2nd most by wide receivers, with 32 catches for 342 yards.

Moulds was released after the 2007 - 2008 season. He had a workout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in May 2008 without being picked up by them. It would appear his NFL career has come to an end after 12 years.

Performance:

  • “I don’t know if the other guys quit on the play, but I was always taught when I came here with Marv Levy that you don’t stop fighting. Guys like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith always showed me that you don’t stop no matter what the score is because that uniform you’ve got on is bigger than your name.”
    “I don’t know if guys realize that. Maybe I did a poor job of letting them know that. I think I have to bring up the fact that there were great players here that played before (them) and (they)’ve got to respect those uniforms.” Press conference October 24, 2004
