Dolphins cut Damontre Moore


Defensive end Damontre Moore lost his job with the Giants last season after a fight with teammate Cullen Jenkins, ending a run with the team that featured flashes of pass rushing ability mixed in with a penchant for personal fouls that made it hard to consider his contributions to the team a net positive.

Moore landed with the Dolphins on waivers and saw action in three games before the year was out, but he won’t be building on those outings this offseason. The Dolphins announced Monday that they have waived Moore as they make room for rookie additions to the roster.

Moore has 9.5 sacks as a rotation player in 45 career games since entering the league as a 2013 third-round pick of the Giants. The pass rushing ability may earn him another look, but the total package that Moore has brought to the table doesn’t do much to create optimism that it will all come together for a long and productive NFL career.

The Dolphins also waived wide receiver Christon Jones and running back Jahwan Edwards.

  1. 9.5 sacks in 45 games is just about 1 every 5 games, or 3.5 for a 16-game season.

    I don’t know if that would fit my definition of “pass rushing ability” unless he had an extraordinary amount of hurries and/or (legal) hits.

  2. I just don’t understand why these guys don’t try to change your attitude if it is becoming a problem. If that were me and I was starting to figure out that my attitude problem was becoming a disease within the team I was playing for I would do everything in my power to change that and try to keep on the right path to a great NFL career and give it everything I had to play up to my potential why waste such a great life you can have with the NFL. When you consider how many people struggle out there in the career world especially with the economy as it is today why would you want to throw something that you’ve been blessed with right in the toilet I just don’t understand it and I never will

  3. I said it yesterday in another article that I made a comment on. One out of every 375000 men in America are born with the natural ability to play in the NFL so when you consider that percentage you have to realize that it is very rare to be born with the ability to play in a league like this so you have to make the most out of every second of every NFL season because they are very short. Careers have the lifespan of a housefly nowadays in the NFL
