Dallas Cowboys: Cowboys player profiles: Maturity issues have limited former A&M DE Damontre Moore; can he break through with Dallas? – Dallas Cowboys News

Damontre Moore

Position: Defensive end

Size: 6-5, 250

Age when season starts: 25

College: Texas A&M

Drafted: Third round in 2013 by New York Giants

Experience: Fifth season

Contract status: In the first year of a two-year deal worth $1.65 million

2016 recap: Spent training camp with the Oakland Raiders but was cut, reportedly after a scuffle at practice. Worked out for the Cowboys last August, but was not signed. The Dallas-area native resurfaced with the Seattle Seahawks in November and played four games, recording seven tackles and .5 sacks before a foot injury caused him to be placed on injured reserve.

2017 outlook: Moore believes a meaningful turning point will finally come this season, playing for his hometown team. He has 10 career sacks, including 5.5 for New York in 2014, but he’s bounced around and underachieved because of maturity issues. The Giants cut him after a locker room fight with a teammate over headphones in December of 2015. He was waived by Miami after the 2016 draft and was arrested on suspicion of DWI last December in King County, Wash. But Moore impressed during organized team activities and minicamp at right end while Benson Mayowa and DeMarcus Lawrence rehabbed injuries. Dallas is even looking at him as a gunner on punt coverage. He spent part of his of his offseason at Von Miller’s pass rush camp. He and the Denver Broncos star and Super Bowl MVP are longtime friends.
