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. May 9 - 5:34 PM

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.
May 2 - 4:07 PM

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.

Giants DE Damontre Moore didn't report to voluntary workouts because he's enrolled at classes at Texas A&M.

Moore won't be around the Giants' facility until the semester ends on May 15. He wouldn't be able to participate in workouts anyway because he's still recovering from an offseason clean-up procedure on his shoulder. The Giants are banking on Moore taking the next step in his development in his third season.

Giants DE Damontre Moore recorded two sacks, a tackle for loss, and a fumble recovery in Friday night's preseason game against the Jets.

Moore now has four sacks this preseason. He is stuck behind veterans Jason Pierre-Paul and Mathias Kiwanuka, but Moore has shown enough to earn a role as a sub-package rusher. Moore is fully recovered from offseason shoulder surgery.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano does not believe second-year DE Damontre Moore will be "starter-ready" when the season begins.

The Giants are after defensive ends that can defend the run to bookend Jason Pierre-Paul. Mathias Kiwanuka and Robert Ayers offer more in that regard at this point. Despite his concerns about Moore today, Graziano does believe he could grab a starting spot as the season goes on. Moore is currently recovering from shoulder surgery, but should be ready to go for training camp.

Giants second-year DE Damontre Moore said his surgically repaired shoulder is at 95 percent.

Moore excelled as a special teamer as a rookie but played just 136 defensive snaps. With Justin Tuck in Oakland, the Giants need Moore to make his mark on defense. Moore is questionable for OTAs but should be good to go for training camp.

ESPN.com's Dan Graziano reports the Giants are hoping for a "big leap" from DE Damontre Moore this season.

A 2013 third-round pick, Moore was limited to special teams as a rookie, playing just 136 snaps. With Justin Tuck gone, Moore is the favorite for the Giants' starting left end job opposite Jason Pierre-Paul and has the potential for a breakout year. Moore underwent shoulder surgery in February and is questionable for OTAs.

Giants second-year DE Damontre Moore underwent shoulder surgery after the season.

"It sucked, I couldn't get to sleep. It was horrible," Moore said of the minor offseason procedure. He's yet to be cleared to lift weights, but Moore is staying in shape by doing plenty of cardio. Once he's cleared, Moore wants to pack on 15 pounds of muscle for his sophomore season. The 81st pick in last April's draft could see an increased role if free agent LE Justin Tuck isn't re-signed.
Tue, Feb 11, 2014 01:57:00 PM

The Giants are grooming third-round pick Damontre Moore to be a hybrid stand-up outside linebacker and down defensive end.

Moore played both 3-4 rush 'backer and 4-3 end at Texas A&M as the Aggies switched schemes during his career. The Giants' current hybrid SLB/DE is Mathias Kiwanuka, though he's moving to end this season. At one point a projected first-round pick, Moore's stock fell due to questionable work ethic.
Sun, May 12, 2013 06:09:00 PM

Giants signed No. 81 pick DE Damontre Moore to a four-year contract.

Although Moore needs work in an NFL weight room, he was a legitimately great college football player, posting eight of his 12.5 sacks against SEC competition last season. As a rookie, he'll be developed as the No. 4 end behind Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Mathias Kiwanuka. Moore is nearly 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds with long arms. He's a likely nickel rusher at worst by 2014.
Fri, May 10, 2013 12:24:00 PM

Giants selected Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore with the No. 81 overall pick.

Moore (6-foot-4 1/2, 250) terrorized the SEC en route to 21 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and two kick blocks in 2012. He led the Aggies in tackles (85), impressive for a defensive lineman. Unfortunately, Moore lacks marquee athleticism and explosion, and was exposed at the Combine with a 4.95 forty. He also managed just 12 bench-press reps, suggesting Moore has lots of work to do in the weight room. He does play relentlessly and showed "Joker" traits in college, rushing productively off the edge, to the inside, and as a stand-up outside 'backer. Moore was once considered a top-ten pick. He'll be a rotational rusher behind starters Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul.
