Damontre Moore claimed by Miami Dolphins, per report

New, comments

The former Giant reportedly has a new home in South Beach.

The New York Giants' game against the Miami Dolphins may have gotten a bit harder.

It's a move that makes sense for a couple reasons for the Dolphins. First, ace pass rusher Cameron Wake has been sidelined with a torn Achilles tendon, so adding a young defensive end with Moore's potential upside is not a bad move.

Second, Moore could give the Dolphins inside information on the Giants' game plan as well as defensive or offensive calls or tendencies.

The Giants don't have to worry about facing Moore on the field, however. The move to claim him is "deferred" and won't become official until Tuesday.

Moore is the second defensive lineman from New York who will be looking for a fresh start in Miami. The Dolphins had previously claimed former Jets defensive lineman -- and miscast linebacker -- Quenton Coples.
