Damontre Moore, Defensive End
This offseason, fans were told that free agent defensive end Damontre Moore, at times, looked like the Cowboys best all-around pass rusher. It was even floated out there that Moore could start the season at right defensive end for Dallas in Week One.
But a two-game suspension for a drunk driving incident last December when Moore was a member of the Seattle Seahawks squashed that speculation. So instead of being the Cowboys newest War Daddy prospect, the veteran was forced to start the season in Week Three, two games late to the party.
Through the Cowboys last four games, Moore has been all but invisible. In fact, he literally vanished in Week Seven, when the Cowboys faced the San Francisco 49ers, as he was placed on Dallas’ inactive list. In fact, Moore’s defensive snaps have been steadily declining.
In his Week Three debut, the former third round pick out of Texas A&M in 2012 played 26 defensive snaps against the Arizona Cardinals. His snap count dropped to 21 against the Los Angeles Rams in Week Four. Finally, against the Green Bay Packers, Moore played just 11 defensive snaps in the Week Five loss.
Coming off the bye week, Moore was a healthy scratch this weekend. That should tell you what you need to know about his status in Dallas. And yet, I somehow still think Moore is better than Taco Charlton.
