Jeremiah Moon (born August 18, 1998) is an American football linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Florida.

College career

Moon's freshman season was cut short after two games due to a season ending injury, leading him to redshirt for the rest of his season. After recovering, he started in five games in 2017 and 13 games in 2018. However, more injuries caused him to sit out for both the 2019 and 2020 season.[1] Thanks to his three injury-shortended season and the extra year of eligibility, due to COVID-19, he returned for a sixth year in 2021.[2]
