The Dolphins announced (via Twitter) that they have waived defensive end Damontre Moore, a former third-round pick. In related moves, the team has also bid farewell to running back Jahwan Edwards and wide receiver Christion Jones.
Moore, 24 in September, was taken with the No. 81 overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Giants. The Texas A&M product was unexpectedly waived by the G-Men in December of last year after getting into a skirmish with fellow defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins after failing to get free Beats by Dre headphones. That incident alone might have been met with a lesser punishment than an outright release, but it was not Moore’s only clash with team personnel. Moore was “fighting his [Giants] teammates since Day 1 of training camp,” and “yelled at” both head coach Tom Coughlin and GM Jerry Reese, according to one report.
Moore hooked on with Miami in December and appeared in three games for the Dolphins, racking up four tackles and one sack.
