NFL suspended Cowboys DE Damontre Moore two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The suspension stems from a December DWI arrest. With Moore, David Irving and Randy Gregory all facing suspensions and the league still deciding the fates of Nolan Carroll and Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys are going to be short-handed early in the year. Moore will be eligible to return against the Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he thinks DE Damontre Moore is "embracing" the opportunity he has in Dallas.

"I think he has matured over the course of his career," Garrett said of Moore, who was cut by the Giants in part because of a fight with a teammate over a pair of headphones and was arrested in December on suspicion of DWI. To his credit, Moore seems to understand he has taken his NFL career for granted to this point, asking himself, "If you really love [football], why aren’t you doing everything to the best of your ability?" The Cowboys desperately need pass-rushing help, and Moore has the talent to be a factor if his head is in the right place.

Cowboys signed DE Damontre Moore, formerly of the Seahawks.

It is a flier for a team in need of help on the defensive line. A third-round pick of the Giants in 2013, Moore has bounced around the league because of off-field and locker-room issues. He was arrested in December on suspicion of DWI and driving with a suspended license, offenses which will likely land him a suspension. Perhaps the Cowboys feel a return home -- Moore attended Texas A&M -- will get the talented rusher back on the right track.
Mar 10 - 8:30 PM

Seahawks placed DE Damontre Moore on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

The injury conveniently coincides with Moore's drunk driving arrest. The journeyman is headed back to free agency in the offseason.

Seahawks DE Damontre Moore was arrested Saturday morning on suspicion of DWI and driving with a suspended license.

A third-round pick of the Giants in 2013, Moore flamed out in New York because of attitude and off-field issues. Waived in training camp this year by the Raiders, Moore has been with the Seahawks for just over a month. He will likely get his walking papers in the near future.

Seahawks signed DE Damontre Moore.

The 2013 third-rounder will provide depth while Michael Bennett recovers from his knee scope.

Free agent DE Damontre Moore will work out for the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Moore entered the league as an early third-round pick in 2013. He's bounced around since getting cut by the Giants last season. Moore would give Seattle some depth up front with Michael Bennett set to miss 2-3 weeks following a knee scope.

Raiders waived DE Damontre Moore.

He lasted only two months on Oakland's roster. Getting cut at this stage is a bad sign for his future, but his pass-rush ability should get him a look on waivers. The Raiders added Tramain Jacobs and LB Lenny Jones in corresponding moves.

Raiders signed DE Damontre Moore, formerly of the Dolphins.

Although Moore has flamed out with the Fins and Giants, he flashed useful pass-rush ability as a rotational player early in his career, and is not yet 24 years old. He's a worthwhile flyer for the suddenly talent-collecting Raiders.

Dolphins waived DE Damontre Moore, RB Jahwan Edwards, and WR Christion Jones.

Moore has never lacked talent -- he was effective in situational duty early in his career with the Giants -- but he's shaping up as a disappointing career underachiever. Moore was cut for "behavioral issues" by New York, and didn't last the offseason in Miami after being claimed off waivers last December.

Dolphins claimed DE Damontre Moore off waivers from the Giants.

Cut by the G-Men over a multitude of attitude-related issues, Moore is a worthwhile flier for the Dolphins with outside edge-rush ability at age 23. Moore is only two months older than Falcons rookie DE Vic Beasley. Although he never earned full-time snaps in three seasons with the Giants, Moore consistently graded out positively at Pro Football Focus, and has piled up 8.5 sacks over his last 24 games. The Dolphins also acquire Moore's contract, which puts him under the team's control cheaply through next season.

Waived ex-Giants DE Damontre Moore was reportedly cut after he got into a fight with fellow DL Cullen Jenkins over a pair of headphones.

As the story goes, Odell Beckham gave everyone on the Giants' roster a pair of Beats By Dre headphones this week. Jenkins claimed two of them, leaving Moore without any. This was the most recent incident involving Moore, but FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo -- a former Giants beat writer -- reports Moore was actually waived due to an "accumulation of incidents." His fight with Jenkins over headphones served as the final straw.

Giants waived DE Damontre Moore.

It was a wholly unexpected move by the pass-rush-starved Giants, parting with a 23-year-old player who's given them some juice off the edge. Moore has three sacks this season in a part-time role, and played nearly 50 snaps in last Sunday's loss to the Jets. A Friday release by the team indicated Moore had "violated team rules," the details of which are undisclosed.

Giants DE Damontre Moore added weight this offseason.

Moore showed up to OTAs at 255, about ten pounds heavier than his playing weight last season. By bulking up, the Giants are hoping Moore can be an every-down player. He logged 5.5 sacks in a part-time role last season. Even at 255, Moore is still one of the lightest players on New York's defensive line.
