Damontre Moore was having an up and down season with the New York Giants this year. I use the term “was” because he is no longer a member of the team after being released for allegedly trying to fight a teammate over free Beats By Dre headphones. Doesn’t sound like the smartest idea on Moore’s part.


Multiple sources said Moore was released because he repeatedly violated team rules and had behavior and maturity issues that have not improved during his three years in the NFL.

Sources say the final straw was a recent fight between Moore and defensive linemate Cullen Jenkins. One source confirmed an NFL Network report that the two fought over the distribution of free Beats headphones in the locker room. But that source and others also said Moore had been fined several times by the team this year for rules violations and behavior problems and that the decision to waive him was based on the accumulation of issues, not just one fight.

The headphones came courtesy of Odell Beckham Jr and apparently not every member of the team received a pair. That somehow led to the altercation with Jenkins and Moore to eventually be cut.
