Moore will be promoted from the practice squad to serve as Matt Cassel's backup for the remainder of the season, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. The former Boise St. standout has yet to take a regular season snap in the NFL, but Moore could see some work if and when the Cowboys are officially eliminated from playoff contention in the weak NFC East and begin looking ahead to 2016.
Moore was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Moore was never a serious candidate to take over the starting job in Dallas when Tony Romo (collarbone) went down in September and Tuesday's removal from the team confirms this notion. The former Boise State standout is still looking for his first NFL appearance, and now he's in search of another backup quarterback job somewhere in the league, although there's no guarantee he'll be able to catch on elsewhere.
The Cowboys activated quarterback Kellen Moore from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After putting a number of signal-callers through a tryout Tuesday -- namely, Christian Ponder, Matt Flynn, Josh Johnson, and McLeod Bethel-Thompson -- the Cowboys have opted to promote the in-house candidate. Expect Moore to compete with newcomer Matt Cassel for the backup QB gig to Brandon Weeden, which could provide Moore's first NFL snap during Tony Romo's (shoulder) extended stay on the sideline.
Former Lions backup quarterback Kellen Moore signed with the Cowboys on Sunday, according to Sports Illustrated. Moore was with Detroit since signing with the organization as an undrafted free agent in 2012.
The Lions cut quarterback Kellen Moore and tightend Joseph Fauria on Saturday, according to ESPN.com. Fauria was a third-year player out of UCLA, while Moore was entering his fourth season our of Boise State.
