Mark DeWayne Moseley (born March 12, 1948 in Lanevillemarker, Texasmarker) is a former professional American football placekicker in the National Football League who played for the Philadelphia Eagles (1970), the Houston Oilers (1971-1972), the Washington Redskins (1974-1986), and the Cleveland Browns (1986). With the retirement of the Minnesota Vikings' Rick Danmeier in 1982, Moseley became the sole full-time straight on placekicker in the National Football League; there has only been one (Dirk Borgognone, who played two games in 1995) since then. In the 1960s, the newer soccer style was introduced by Hungarianmarker brothers Pete and Charlie Gogolak and it became increasingly popular.

Moseley is a graduate of Livingston High School in Livingstonmarker, Texasmarker. He won the Most Valuable Player Award during the strike-shortened 1982 season. He is the only placekicker to win the award.

In the Washington Redskins' 27-17 victory in Super Bowl XVII over the Miami Dolphins, Moseley kicked two field goals and was successful on all three of his extra point attempts. During the following season, he led the NFL in scoring with 161 points.

In 1986, the popular 38-year old Moseley was released by the Washington Redskins mid-season. He remains their all-time leading scorer with 1,207 points. He signed with the Cleveland Browns and retired at the end of the season.

In his career, Mark Moseley was successful on 300 out of 457 attempts (65%), successful on 482 out of 512 extra points attempts (94%) and scored a total of 1,382 points.

He is now the Director of Franchising for Five Guys and has 5 children. Shelly, Ellen, Megan, Lindsay, and Mark Jr.
