Seahawks sign DL Damontre Moore


The Seahawks have been busy on Thursday. Not only did the team re-sign Josh Gordon, but Seattle also brought back old friend Damontre Moore.

Moore, 27, is a former New York Giants third-round pick back in 2013. He's spent time with six different teams, including a four-game stint with the Seahawks back in 2014. He most recently spent the 2019 season with the 49ers but was limited to just two games after breaking his forearm. Moore has 10 career sacks in 56 career games.

He joins a crowded defensive line with the Seahawks. He's now the third player, along with Gordon and Paul Richardson, to be signed by Seattle at the bitter end of camp. All three figure to steal a roster spot away from somebody.

It doesn't make sense to sign Moore two days ahead of roster cuts if you don't intend on keeping him. So the question is, whose spot will he take? Based on my roster projections, I'll now probably cut versatile defensive back Ryan Neal. Moore is more of a defensive end or 5-tech which means a guy like Brian Mone should be safe.

These late additions certainly add intrigue going into a cut day that once seemed like it would be pretty chalk. Now we have legitimate questions as to how things will play out over the weekend.
