After spending three seasons on the sideline in Detroit, quarterback Kellen Moore is heading to Dallas.
Moore told the Idaho Statesman he is signing with the Cowboys’ practice squad. The move reunites Moore with Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, who was the Lions’ offensive coordinator for Moore’s first two years in Detroit.
The Lions cut Moore on Saturday and reportedly wanted to bring him back to their own practice squad, but Moore chose Dallas instead. It’s not clear if the Cowboys offered Moore more money than the typical practice squad salary of $6,600 a week, or if Moore just thought Dallas was a better place for him to advance his career.
Moore spent the last three years with the Lions after signing as an undrafted rookie in 2012, but he was never active for a regular-season game.
