The 2017 off-season doesn’t seem to stop for the Dallas Cowboys.
Friday afternoon it was announced that defensive end DaMontre Moore is being suspended for two games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

The former third-round pick was once considered a potential top-5 talent, but fell precipitously after a shockingly poor combine performance. He was released by the Giants following a number of on-field penalties and an incident involving defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. Since being cut, he has bounced around the league, having been on the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks before landing with Dallas.
Moore joins fellow defensive ends Randy Gregory (one year) and David Irving (four games) on the suspension list, as well as linebacker Rolando McClain (one year), wide reciver Shaquille Evans (four games), and potentially running back Ezekiel Elliot — not to mention receiver Lucky Whitehead, who was released despite no wrongdoing. Moore’s suspension is a blow to a defense that was counting on him to provide some pass rush off the edge.
