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.
