Moore was claimed off waivers by Miami, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Moore was released by the Giants after a series of on and off the field problems. He has the ability to get to the quarterback so if he can mature quickly and keep his head on straight he could help a Dolphins defensive line that is short a pass rusher since the loss of Cameron Wake (Achilles) for the season.
Moore was released by the Giants on Friday, ESPN's Damontre Moorereports. A former third-round draft pick, Moore was let go by the Giants due to repeated violations of team rules and general maturity issues, according to Graziano. It's unclear at this time if the 23-year-old defensive end will sign on with another team this late into the regular season, but he likely won't have much of an opportunity to contribute on the field, regardless, unless he displays a major change in character.
Giants defensive end Damontre Moore had his right arm in a sling as he watched Texas A&M's Pro Day with other former Aggies, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. More information on Moore's injury was not immediately available. The Giants expect big things from Moore in 2015 after he registered 5.5 sacks and 32 tackles last season. The 6-5, 250-pounder is entering his third season.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday giving defensive end Damontre Moore more playing time could be an option to help a lackluster pass rush, according to NJ.com. "Young Damontre, everybody wants him in the ball game, he did have some success the other day with one sack," Coughlin said. "He should have been playing a little bit more (Week 12 vs. Dallas)." Despite Moore showing at times he could help the pass rush, he has spent a lot of time on the bench this season. "Because there are times, to be honest with you, during the week when you talk about confidence level, whether it's assignment football or whatever, for whatever reason, it hasn't been something that we thought [Moore] knows exactly what he's doing and so on and so forth," Coughlin said. "The practices have to fulfill the idea that we can go ahead and play him under all kinds of circumstances is what we'd like to do, not just on third down."
The Giants have ruled out Peyton Hillis (concussion), Cullen Jenkins (calf) and Jacquian Williams (concussion) out for Week 11 at home against the 49ers. The team also included Damontre Moore (shoulder), Nat Berhe (ankle), Daniel Fells (neck), Rashad Jennings (knee) and Mathias Kiwanuka (knee) on the final injury report, though all five were deemed probable.
