Sinorice Moss

Sinorice Moss On His Way To Becoming An Actor

The New York Giants drafted wide receiver Sinorice Moss in the second round of the 2006 NFL draft with the hope that his blazing speed would allow him to develop into a dominant slot receiver. To make a long story short, Moss' career was marred by a slew on injuries that never allowed him to emerge as a consistently productive member of the roster. Moss did play in 13 games in 2007, the year that Big Blue shocked the world and took home a Lombardi Trophy. However, after suffering from a sports hernia prior to the 2010 season, Moss was placed on the injured reserve and subsequently released after receiving an injury settlement.

Moss attempted to continue his football career elsewhere, namely with the Philadelphia Eagles and Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. Neither opportunity yielded a job opportunity, as Moss has been out of football for the last several months. With Moss' football career likely in his rearview mirror, he's began focusing his time on establishing an acting career.

In 2006, before the NFL became a realistic career path, Moss made his acting debut as an extra on "General Hospital". He took a break to focus on football over the next several years, until appearing as Daniel in a short drama entitled "This Time," which documented a soldiers' attempt to win back his wife after returning from war. Moss is also credited as an executive producer on the film.

Lastly, Moss played a small role in a 2012 film entitled "The Last Fall," which ironically enough, chronicles a professional football player's attempt to move on in life after his time in the NFL is prematurely cut short.

Obviously, Sinorice Moss is not the next Tom Cruise or Tyler Perry. However, it's encouraging to know that he's found a small niche in his life to help him stay active without playing professional football. For every Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz who makes it big time in the NFL, there are several other players who, for one reason or another, wash out of the league. Moss was unfortunately one of those players, but his ability to shift his focus elsewhere in life is a lesson that many of former athletes can learn from.

After playing football for one's entire life, it's understandably difficult to cope with washing out of the professional ranks at a young age. Many players do so without a college degree, without a viable support system, without another source of income and no idea how to adjust their standard of living to reflect their new, and likely significantly reduced salary. Nobody knows how Sinorice Moss has personally with being out of the league, but he seems to have found a new passion in life to apply himself to. That's more than most other former NFL athletes can say for themselves.

South Miami LB Korey Moss following in his family’s footsteps

Santana Moss, Sinorice Moss and DeMarcus Van Dyke all used their speed to make it to the NFL.

Korey Moss is hoping his strength will be the ticket to follow in his family’s footsteps.

Moss, a 5-9, 220-pound senior linebacker at South Miami, is the nephew of the Moss brothers — stars at Carol City and the University of Miami — and a cousin of Van Dyke, a former Miami Monsignor Pace star who plays with the Oakland Raiders.

“I’m one of the biggest ones in the family,” Moss said. “My uncles and my cousin were fast and played wide receiver in high school. But I’m the powerful one. I’m the one that likes to kill the guy running with the ball.”

Moss showed his strength and skill as a linebacker to record more than 100 tackles and 10 sacks last season in a breakout year for him and the Cobras.

Moss led Miami-Dade County in tackles for the first seven weeks of last season before being hobbled by an ankle injury. His efforts were key during a turnaround season in which South Miami won its first playoff game since 1987.

Moss keeps in contact with Santana when his schedule with the Washington Redskins permits, and with Sinorice, who currently plays for Saskatchewan in the Canadian Football League.

Although Korey said he doesn’t have a college picked out yet, the University of Miami, where his three famous relatives played, is a school he grew up watching.

“Even though I’m not the same type of player they are, I learned a lot from watching them growing up,” said Moss, who would like to study veterinary medicine in college. “They’ve taught me how to stay focused when I’m on the field and what to do off it so I can make it big in life.”

Moss has yet to attract offers from major colleges but is hoping a big senior season to follow up last year’s performance will draw more attention from college recruiters.

Moss will still be a key cog for South Miami, which changed coaches in the offseason, hiring David Gray following the departure of Lamont Green to Southridge. Gray inherits a defense (led by Moss and senior linebacker Matt Delavega) that returns several starters.

The Cobras will have to account for the loss of some major weapons on offense because quarterback and all-around athlete A.J. Leggett graduated and leading running back Johnny Hankins transferred.

If a new quarterback emerges, he will have a solid receiving core led by junior Keyshaun Taylor.

Moss believes there is still enough talent to keep the Cobras in contention for another playoff run in District 14-8A.

Columbus is the heavy favorite to win the district again, coming off a state semifinal appearance in what was its best season since 1982.

But the Cobras (9-3 in 2011) appear to have as good a chance as last year to vie for the runner-up spot with Coral Gables, Miami High and Coral Park.

“We lost our coach from last year, but we’ve been doing well with Coach Gray, and we pretty much have the same team,” Moss said. “We expect another great season if we keep showing our dedication and heart.”

Sinorice Moss anxious to play for the Roughriders

Former New York Giants receiver Sinorice Moss is to make his pre-season debut with the Roughriders on Friday against the visiting Calgary Stampeders. Moss missed the Riders’ pre-season opener in B.C. with a groin injury. Here is what he had to say about suiting up for the Riders on Friday:

How itchy are you to finally get a chance to play in one of these CFL games that you’ve heard so much about? “I’m very excited — very, very anxious and very excited. I’ve been preparing myself for a couple of weeks now. To finally have an opportunity to come out here and be special for the team is great excitement for myself. Playing football up here is amazing and an adrenalin rush, and something that I’m anxious to be a part of.’’

What has piqued your curiosity in particular? “Just being out in the atmosphere. I heard the city of Regina and Saskatchewan and the fans are amazing, so I just want to be out here in the atmosphere and feel the energy of the fans and come out here and have a great game.’’

Has it been a little frustrating not getting the opportunity until now and having one pre-season game pass? “I won’t say it made me upset at all or anything. I’ve been preparing myself in practice and making a lot of plays in practice and doing what I have to do to learn the system. Now I finally have a game to come out here and play and showcase my talents. That’s what it’s all about.’’

What do you want people to see? What do you want people to be saying about you after tomorrow’s game? “I really don’t listen to what people have to say. I just want to come up here and be a key acquisition for this team, come out here and make some plays and, when given the opportunity, go out and make the best of it.’’

When the Riders played in B.C., you were resting a minor groin injury, right? “Yes. They thought it was best for me not to participate in that game. It was the coaches’ decision. Now it’s my time to come out here and have some fun.’’

Saskatchewan Roughriders hope Sinorice Moss produces wins along with other NFL ties

REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders are attempting to find the next Weston Dressler without recruiting someone of his description.

Dressler made a seamless transition from the college ranks to the CFL in 2008, earning rookie-of-the-year laurels after catching 56 passes for 1,123 yards — an average of 20.1 yards per reception.

Fast forward to 2012. Having made it a priority to increase team speed, the Roughriders’ wish list includes an impact receiver — someone who can emulate Dressler by scorching opposing secondaries. But this time, the team is concentrating on signing players with NFL credentials, as opposed to hopefuls who have yet to play beyond the university level.

The list of off-season signees includes two pass-catchers who were second-round NFL draft choices. Dwayne Jarrett was chosen 45th overall by the Carolina Panthers in 2007. The following year, the New York Giants claimed Sinorice Moss with the 44th pick.

Like Moss, Justin Harper was selected in the 2008 draft. He went in the seventh round to the Baltimore Ravens. Harper and Taj Smith — who has seen active NFL duty with the Indianapolis Colts — join Jarrett and Moss on Saskatchewan’s training-camp roster for 2012.

In the case of each player, the Roughriders are hoping that the resume translates into results. Although the pedigrees are intriguing, a cautionary note is advisable. As former Roughriders GM Roy Shivers used to say about recruits with NFL ties: “These guys are up here for a reason.’’

At some point, for some reason, they have been found wanting by the NFL. That does not disqualify someone from making an imprint north of the border. Hugh Campbell, Rhett Dawson, Matt Dominguez, Chris DeFrance, Curtis Marsh and Don Narcisse are among the pass-catchers who have excelled for the Green and White after being waived through the NFL.

That list may very well be expanded as the 2012 season unfolds.

Jarrett, who was ninth in Heisman Trophy voting in 2006, was a two-time all-American at USC before joining the Panthers. In four NFL seasons, he caught 35 passes for 428 yards and one touchdown. Moss posted similar numbers — 39 catches for 421 yards, with three touchdowns — as a member of the Giants. Smith (who dressed for five games) and Harper (two games) have also worn an NFL uniform.

The same can be said of Dallas Baker, who was obtained from the Montreal Alouettes midway through the 2011 season. Baker earned a Super Bowl ring after dressing for eight regular-season games with the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers.

There is something to be said for any player who appears on an NFL active roster, regardless of the duration. If you stockpile players of that calibre, the odds of finding a bona fide starter or two become favourable.

Keep in mind that the Roughriders do not need all of the aforementioned newcomers to pan out. Three of the five starting spots are already spoken for, thanks to Dressler, Chris Getzlaf and Rob Bagg. Efrem Hill, who caught 66 passes for the Roughriders in 2011, will also make a strong bid to retain his starting spot. Hence, the receivers who remain are likely vying for one or two roster spots.

Jarrett, Harper and Baker are all 6-foot-3 or taller, and are therefore inviting targets. Smith, at 6-foot-1, exhibited his elusiveness and route-running ability at a recent mini-camp. The 5-foot-8 Moss turned more heads than anyone, given his blinding speed.

But the question remains: Are those players’ skill sets transferable to the CFL game?

There is something to be said for an advanced comprehension of Canadian professional football. Non-import slotback Andy Fantuz was largely ignored by the Chicago Bears during a tryout in 2011, yet the erstwhile Roughrider — now a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats — is one of the CFL’s premier receivers.

Despite a lack of NFL validation, Fantuz is ideally suited to the Canadian game. The rules are second nature to him. The waggle — the ability of players to be in motion as the ball is snapped — also works to his advantage.

Although the likes of Jarrett and Moss are not as accustomed to the nuances of the CFL, they should provide the Roughriders with a running start once training camp begins.

Sinorice Moss could fill void for Roughriders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders' No. 83 jersey is still assigned to someone with a highly recognizable name.

But that number now belongs to Sinorice Moss - not Andy Fantuz.

When the entire football universe is taken into consideration, Moss is better known than Fantuz, even though the latter was a popular and productive member of the Roughriders from 2006 to 2011 before signing with the Hamilton TigerCats as a CFL free agent.

Fantuz's departure created a void - but also an opportunity - for the Roughriders. Although the team faces a formidable challenge in attempting to replace a slotback of Fantuz's calibre, there is always the possibility that the Green and White will strike it rich while infusing a faster player into the lineup.

Could that person be Moss?

That is a question worth posing following the Roughriders' mini-camp, which was held Wednesday on Taylor Field and Thursday at the Moose Jaw FieldHouse. Moss, who committed to Saskatchewan shortly before last week's sessions, quickly turned heads by displaying the kind of speed that prompted the New York Giants to select him in the second round (44th overall) of the 2006 NFL draft.

"Once he learns how to play this game, I think that he can be an excellent player up here,'' Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin said. "I think he can be a star in this league, just because of all the physical attributes that he has.''

Those attributes enabled the former University of Miami Hurricanes star to spend five seasons with the Giants. The younger brother of Washington Redskins star receiver Santana Moss caught 39 passes for 421 yards and three touchdowns with the Giants while also serving as a kick returner.
Moss was released by the Giants in November of 2010, upon reaching an injury settlement with the team. He latched on with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, only to be among their final cuts. Now he is hoping to make an imprint north of the border.

"It was an opportunity that presented itself,'' said Moss, 28.

"Loving the game of football, you always want to continue playing ball. Being in the NFL for the past six years, I was weighing my options there. When this opportunity presented itself, I prayed about it and spoke to my family. I wanted to make the transition and see where my future lies in the CFL.

"The NFL was still an option as well, but I just wanted to move forward and do what I had to do that was best for me. Coming here and taking this opportunity was best.''

The 5-foot-8, 185-pounder established contact with the Roughriders via his cousin, Greg Moss, who is a former defensive back with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Ottawa Renegades. Saskatchewan general manager Brendan Taman was Winnipeg's GM when Greg Moss - who had an interception against the Roughriders in the 2007 Grey Cup - played for the Bombers. Chamblin was Winnipeg's defensive backs coach in 2007.

Greg Moss's inquiry intrigued Taman, who promptly approached Chamblin and said: "Remember Sinorice Moss? He wants to play football in Canada.'' Shortly thereafter, Saskatchewan assistant GM Jeremy O'Day contacted Sinorice Moss's agent. A deal was done.

Where does all this lead? Who knows?

Not even a year ago in this space, Terrence Nunn was being touted as a sure-fire replacement for Fantuz - who missed the first half of the 2011 CFL season while trying out for the Chicago Bears.

In Nunn's case, the hype that surrounded him during training camp and in the pre-season proved to be unjustified. He was a nonfactor, and eventually a non-Roughrider. It was that kind of year.

Like Nunn, Moss is a smaller receiver - albeit one with more impressive credentials and, as was evident during the mini-camp, eyebrow-raising speed and quickness. On one squareout route in particular, Moss exploded out of a cut, scorched a would-be defender, and hauled in a pass.
"There's some jets to that engine,'' Taman observed.

The Roughriders desperately need a player of that description, as Chamblin has acknowledged during the off-season. Team speed was one of the team's primary deficiencies during a 2011 season in which the Roughriders finished with a 5-13 record, missed the playoffs for the first time in 10 years, and were excruciating to watch on offence.

That nightmarish season has led to a full-scale facelift, which has produced reputable recruits such as Moss.

"He comes from a family of speed,'' Chamblin said. "He's a guy who can run. I'm more impressed not with his speed, because a lot of guys have speed, but with the fact that there's not a lot of balls on the ground around him. I'm impressed with how he's matching his hands with his speed. I'm excited to see how it turns out with him.''

Moss sounds comparably enthused. Remember that he was the one who reached out to the Roughriders, with his cousin serving as the intermediary, in the hope of continuing his pro football career.

"The NFL was a lot of ups and a lot of downs and a lot of in-betweens,'' Moss said. "I've definitely enjoyed myself playing professional football and I plan on enjoying myself here as well.''

Roughriders Agree To Terms With Sinorice Moss

REGINA -- Sinorice Moss is looking to kick-start his football career in the CFL.

The receiver who earned a Super Bowl ring with the 2007 New York Giants signed was among three import players to agree to terms with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Tuesday. The others were offensive lineman Johan Asiata and linebacker Daniel Sheffield.

The five-foot-eight, 185-pound Moss was a second-round pick (44th overall) of the Giants in the 2006 NFL draft. The Miami native spent five seasons with New York, registering 39 catches for 421 yards and three touchdowns.

Moss played his college football at Miami, finishing with 68 receptions for 1,106 yards and nine touchdowns.

The six-foot-four, 300-pound Asiata spent time the last three seasons on the Chicago Bears practice squad after his college career at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

The six-foot-four, 210-pound Sheffield played three seasons at Troy University, lining up at safety and linebacker. He accumulated 147 career defensive tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception.

The Riders also released import receiver Ernie Wheelwright on Tuesday.

Sinorice Moss defines his own style and path

Former New York Giants wide receiver Sinorice [sih-naw-riss] Moss traded in his football uniform for something a little more personalized. Now an actor and a philanthropist, Moss defines his own style and path.


If asked to describe a professional football player, one might be inclined to use words like “imposing,” “hulking” or “intimidating.” When describing the former New York Giants wide receiver, Sinorice Moss, on the other hand, appropriate descriptors could include “inspiring,” “enthusiastic” and “role model.”
A warm, wide grin crosses his face when he discusses his next moves. He’s passionate about his charity, the Dare to Dream Foundation, and equally enthused about his second film, “The Last Fall,” which debuted at South by Southwest, and Nomadic Music, his independent music label formed with best friend Jesse Boykins III.

Your name is so unique. Do you think having such a different name has helped to shape you in any way?
I love having such a unique name, one you don’t hear often. With a name this unusual, the first time you hear it, it kind of grabs you and you want to know the origin and you just want to know more.

How would you define your personal style? Did you always have this look, or has it changed and evolved as you have?
I would say that my style until now has been very traditional. I consider my style very conservative, very business-like at times, but I can adapt to whatever style or trend is in. I’m still discovering my personal style. I believe that your style can include the people that you hang around with, the places you shop, what you eat, your hobbies, the books you read – that’s your personal style. It all comes together to define the person that you are.
