Two former Delaware State University standouts are working out with National Football League teams after signing free agent contracts last week.

The NFL's Indianapolis Colts announced the signing of former Hornet wide receiver/kick returner Larrone Moore, while the Cleveland Browns inked former DSU defensive tackle Andre Caroll.

Moore led all FCS players with a 34.8 kickoff return average during the 2010 season. He returned two kicks for touchdowns and had three other returns of 50-or-more yards last year. Moore was named to the 2010 Phil Steele All-America First Team, SportsNetwork All-America Third Team and All-MEAC Second Team as a kick returner. During his DSU career, Moore returned 60 kickoffs for 1,544 yards (27.7 ypr) and three touchdowns. As a wide receiver, the Hyattsville, Md., native had 102 catches for 1,236 yards with the Hornets.

Caroll was a 2010 All-MEAC First Team and SportsNetwork FCS All-America Third Team selection. Last season, he led the Hornets and was fifth in the MEAC in tackles (8.7 pg). He set a Delaware State record for defensive linemen with 96 total tackles a year ago. In addition, Caroll was eighth in the MEAC in tackles-for-loss (1.23 pg; 13.5 total) and 13th in sacks (0.36 pg; 4.0 total). The Neptune, N.J., native was also credited with two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, five quarterbacks hurries and an interception. Caroll was an All-MEAC Second Team pick in 2009.

Philadelphia Eagles center Jamaal Jackson is the only other Delaware State University product currently in the NFL. Jackson is in his ninth season with the Eagles.
