EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today waived defensive end Damontre Moore.
"We made the move today in the interest of both parties," said Giants general manager Jerry Reese.
The 6-5, 250-pound Moore was in his third season with the team. This year, he played in 11 of the team's 12 games; he was inactive vs. Dallas on Oct. 25. Moore registered 17 tackles (12 solo), 3.0 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and five special teams tackles.
Moore had a season-high five tackles (three solo), plus a special teams tackle, last week vs. the Jets, and 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble in a victory over San Francisco on Oct. 11.
Moore joined the Giants as a third-round draft choice from Texas A&M in 2013. In three seasons, he played in 42 games and contributed 47 tackles (34 solo), 8.5 sacks and 21 special teams tackles.
The Giants did not immediately announce a replacement for Moore on their roster. They return to action Monday night in Miami.
