Solomon Wayne Moore (August 17, 1945 - August 19, 1989) was a former NFL offensive tackle who played nine seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He was a member of the Miami Dolphins' undefeated team in 1972.
In 1970, the Dolphins' new offensive line coach Monte Clark claimed the offensive tackle off waivers from his former team, the San Francisco 49ers, and Moore became an integral part of the Dolphins' success in the 1970s. Over his career, Moore played in three Super Bowls (VI, VII, and VIII) with the Dolphins and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1973.
After his retirement, Wayne Moore became a salesman for a construction company. On August 19, 1989, two days after his 44th birthday, Wayne Moore suffered a heart attack at his home in Miami. He was pronounced dead at Coral Reef Hospital that afternoon.
During his years in college, Moore played basketball—not football—at Lamar University in his hometown. In 1993, Moore was posthumously enshrined in the Cardinal Hall of Honor for his achievements on the basketball court.
