We have been awarded DE Damontre Moore off waivers from the New York Giants.
To make room on the roster, we waived C/G Jacques McClendon.

The Dolphins needed some pass-rushing help, so it will be interesting to see what Moore can do for them down the stretch.
Moore, 23, is in the third year of his four-year, $2.8 million rookie contract that included a $575,252 signing bonus. He’ll make a base salary of $585,000 this season and another $675,000 in 2016.
This year, Moore has appeared in 11 games and recorded 23 tackles, three sakcs, a forced fumble and a recovery for the Giants. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 42 defensive end in a 4-3 defense out of 52 qualifying players.
