The Bills have released Moore. Moore, who did not catch a pass in six games with the Bills this season, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth wideout/return option.
Wide receiver Denarius Moore has been signed by the Bills, according to WKBW in Buffalo. Moore didn't play a single offensive snap throughout the final eight games of the 2014 season with the Raiders, and will serve in a depth role with the Bills. Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, and Robert Woods carry the load at wide receiver for the Bills, so barring a couple injuries, don't expect Moore to have much fantasy relevance.
In addition to the moves the Bengals made Monday, most notably releasing receiver Denarius Moore, the team cut seven more players to get down to the 75-man limit, per ESPN.com. The team released WR Desmond Lawrence, LB Nico Johnson, DT Kwame Geathers, DE Sam Montgomery, OG Chris Jasperse, TE John Peters and WR Tevin Reese. The team put FB Mark Weisman and WR Onterio McCalebb on the waived/injured list, LB Sean Porter on the reserve/PUP list and OT Cedric Ogbuehi on the reserve/non-football injury list.
The Bengals have waived receiver Denarius Moore, whom they picked up in the offseason in an attempt to add more speed to their receiving corps, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Moore was expected to click with Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, his former coach with the Raiders, under whom he caught 97 passes for 1,436 yards in 2012-13. But Moore struggled in camp and caught just one pass in the preseason. The move puts veterans Greg Little and Brandon Tate in a better position to hang on to a roster spot.
Free-agent wide receiver Denarius Moore will sign a one-year deal with the Bengals, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moore, who also visited with the Jets, caught just 12 receptions for 115 yards in 10 games with the Raiders last season. He was targeted much more from 2011-2013, accounting for over 600 yards in each of those seasons. Moore will be reunited with his former coach in Oakland, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.
