The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed former New York Giants defensive end Damontre Moore. The Giants originally selected Moore in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Moore was last seen playing for San Diego Fleet in the Alliance of American Football in an effort to revive his career. The league of course ceased operations without making it through a full season.
Moore obviously caught the eye of the 49ers, who just signed him for the third time since April. After being signed on April 5, Moore was waived on May 16. He was signed again on July 24 before being waived again on August 24. The injury to Ronald Blair opened up the spot for the 49ers to sign Moore again on Tuesday.
Moore, of course, started his career with the Giants in 2013 and played for them for nearly three seasons before being cut on December 15 due to violating team rules after an apparent altercation with fellow defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins.
Since then, Moore had brief stints with the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys prior to playing in the AAF.
On top of the conduct issues with the Giants, Moore has also faced suspension due to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy during his time with Dallas. The 49ers have had Moore on and off their roster twice in the calendar year, so they are likely familiar with the 27-year-old defensive end.
