Moore, who was signed by the Patriots in 2011, was active for the first eight games of the season before being waived on Oct. 31 and re-signed to the practice squad. He is best known for breaking up a pass to Baltimore receiver Lee Evans in the waning moments of the AFC Championship.
Moore will likely have a better chance to play in Dallas and his salary of $149,900 will increase to $390,000, assuming he is paid the league minimum.
The Cowboys must keep Moore on the 53-man roster for at least three weeks.
