The Giants officially announced that they’ve placed DE Damontre Moore on waivers.
“We made the move today in the interest of both parties,” said Giants general manager Jerry Reese.
- Dan Graziano reports that the Giants cut Moore for violating team rules.
Earlier in the day, Garafolo mentioned that Moore was not at Giants’ practice on Friday, and it wasn’t clear as to why he wasn’t taking part in the session. However, it appears as though the Giants elected to move on from the former third-round pick.
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.
NFL teams will have an opportunity to claim Moore of off waivers in the coming days.
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.
