Brandon Moore visiting Cowboys, Lions

After leaving a visit with the Dolphins without a contract, free agent offensive lineman Brandon Moore has lined up a couple more visits.

Moore will visit the Cowboys and the Lions, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Although Moore is best known for being one half of Mark Sanchez’s infamous “Buttfumble,” he could be a strong addition to some team’s offensive line. Moore has been a dependable player since becoming a starter for the Jets in 2004, starting 137 straight games since then — the longest such streak for any offensive lineman in the NFL. Moore has been a Pro Bowler, a team captain and a recipient of the Jets’ Ed Block Courage Award.

In addition to the Cowboys, Lions and Dolphins, the Bears are believed to be interested in signing Moore.

    Moore graded our in 2004 as the 4th best guard in the NFL last year according to PFF and he was ranked as the top FA available this year,

    His loss will be a huge loss to the Jets. Not only does he play at a high level, but he is regarded as a leader and high character guy and he always shows up,

    Lions need to sign this guy….good for the line and good for the locker room! Get it done.

    A key fact that many people ignore while joking about Sanchez and the Buttfumble was that Vince Wilfork pushed Moore very strongly towards Sanchez.

    The Dolphins are doing alot of window shopping but they just aren’t buying anymore.My guess is they’re waiting for the price to come down.

    For the Detroit Lions, now starting at right guard … Brandon Moore.

    I actually just told a few people that Dallas needed to kick the tires on Brandon Moore b/c their OL needs help! Not a Cowboy fan though, GO EAGLES!!

    Good luck Stafford! This guy got Sanchez killed last year.

    “A key fact that many people ignore while joking about Sanchez and the Buttfumble was that Vince Wilfork pushed Moore very strongly towards Sanchez.”

    Actually, Wilfork didn’t. Moore was pushed back maybe half a yard, but the TV announcers acted like Wilfork had thrown Moore back 4 yards into Sanchez.

    The real problem was that Sanchez slid right into Moore because he mis-judged how close Moore was.

    We’ll definately miss him. Solid O-Lineman. Good pass protector. Not that it mattered with Sanchez in there….

    He’ll be a plus for any team that signs him.

    The Cowboys need a guard to say the least but Jerry has salary cap issues making it tough to sign a free agent.

    Moore has a very impressive resume but he has been in the NFL for 10 years. He probably has a couple good years left so if the price is right, then it may be a decent more for Dallas.

    The Lions signing this guy would mean so much come draft time!! We would have many options at #5

    extend Romo, sign Moore and Winston, cut/move Free. I’ll feel better about going 8-8 this year than years past.

    Detroit, make it happen

    Sounds like a Brian Waters/Logan Mankins type of player. Wonder if Pats sneak in on this on or not.

    He’s not been able to get the stench off his rear since Sanchez did that to him.

    What can the Cowboys offer?
    They have no caproom and have already restructured pretty much everybody but Romo.

  17. andylucksneck says: Mar 23, 2013 9:05 PM

    He will be a Redskins before the season begins.

    This guy has been available all along? The Cowboys should have cut free day 1 anyway. This guy can be signed, probably for cheaper than worthless Free and open up cap space as well as upgrade at the same time. Extend Romo to add more space since they want him as QB anyway. I wish Jerry would stop overspending for some of those players and we wouldn’t have this problem.

    Who’d know better than you?

    Dallas needs this guy. Our offensive line needs an upgrade to help Romo out. Will be tough, but Jerry will do what he can, Go ‘Boys!!!
