Damontre Moore was a former Giants player. It’s no secret that Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, feels very strongly that the Anthem and Flag should be respected. And he expects the Cowboys to honor that notion. Moore, along with an another player, raised a fist at the the end of the Anthem. That may or may not have had something to do with why he will never ever don a Cowboy uniform again. One thing is certain, karma got him.
“The Cowboys had to cut somebody to make room for kicker Mike Nugent. It just so happened it was defensive end Damontre Moore.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Moore’s release had nothing to do with anything off the field. Moore has given the team little to nothing so far this season.
He was suspended the first two games, made seven tackles and four quarterback pressures in three games and was inactive Sunday against the 49ers.
“We had to make a roster move and we just felt like the best decision for our team was to release Damontre Moore,” Garrett said.”
Dagger News also found out that Damontre Moore was involved in a snafu at an Uptown club as reported by the Dallas News:
“Moore was also involved in an altercation at an Uptown club Thursday evening, sources say, a confrontation those same sources insist had nothing to do with Tuesday’s release. Club officials are convinced the defensive end wasn’t at fault.”
We may never know if Damontre was released in part for lifting a fist and defying Jerry Jones, but one thing is for sure, Damontre won’t be around to do it again.
Welcome, Mike Nugent, to the Cowboys. Are you still boycotting the NFL? Drop a line below and let us know.
