This represents the same path the 29-year-old passer took earlier this year when Dallas released him post-training camp. The Cowboys brought Moore back soon after his September release via their practice squad and promoted him to their active roster soon after.
It’s possible Moore could return to the Cowboys’ active roster soon enough, and this latest set of transactions shows the team values the left-handed signal-caller as an in-case-of-emergency option. The Cowboys run the risk of another team poaching the Boise State product, but Moore was free to sign with anyone on multiple occasions this year — including in March when the Cowboys retained him on a one-year deal — and he ended up staying in Texas.
