Ezekiel Aaron Moreno (born October 8, 1978) is a former professional American football linebacker.

Early yearsEdit

Moreno, who is of Mexican American descent, attended Castle Park High School in Chula Vista and was a letterman in football and baseball. In football, as a senior, he led his team to a state championship in 1996. It was actually a "mythical" state championship, because the state of California did not have a state championship at the time.[1][2]

College careerEdit

Moreno played college football for the University of Southern California's defense from 1998-2000. Known as "Zeke And Destroy" by many USC-faithful, Moreno was a force in the middle of the USC defense.

Professional careerEdit

Moreno was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the fifth round (139th pick overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft. He played for the Chargers for four years (2001–2004). Moreno was released by the Chargers following the 2004 season and was hampered by injuries while trying to find a home with another team in 2005. He signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League in 2007. He was selected as a CFL All-Star in 2007 and 2008.

On September 9, 2008, Moreno was traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.[3]

On February 19, 2009, Moreno was traded to the Toronto Argonauts in exchange for defensive end Riall Johnson.[4]

On February 21, 2010, Moreno was released by the Argonauts.
