Moore was signed to the Panthers' 53-man roster Saturday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Moore had been residing on the team's practice squad so far this season. The 27-year-old takes the roster spot of offensive lineman John Theus (concussion), who was placed on injured reserve, and should serve as a depth option on the defensive line.
The Panthers claimed Moore off waivers Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Moore will be entering his fourth year in the NFL, but he's logged a total of just three tackles in his career, all of which came in 2014 with the Patriots. After relatively unsuccessful stints with the Cowboys and most recently, the 49ers, Moore will now head to the Panthers, where he'll have a shot to battle for a roster spot during training camp.
Moore was released by the Cowboys on Monday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Moore only spent a little over a week on the Cowboys' active roster, but will once again be demoted due to the return of Randy Gregory at defensive end.
Moore was cut by the Vikings on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Moore was competing to add depth at left defensive tackle. He lost out in a position battle with Danielle Hunter. Moore was drafted by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
