After repeated penalties, Giants waive DE Moore

RECOMMENDED READING


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Giants waived talented but frustrating defensive end Damontre Moore on Friday.

"We made the move … in the interest of both parties," general manager Jerry Reese said.

Moore, 23, a third-round pick from Texas A&M in 2013, was in his third season with the team. He was benched for a late hit in October, and he picked up roughing-the-quarterback penalties against the Saints and Buccaneers in consecutive weeks in early November.

In all, Moore played in 42 games, with 47 tackles, 81/2 sacks and 21 special teams tackles.

CARDINALS want MORE: A shaky win over the Vikings on Thursday clinched a playoff berth for the Cardinals. Now, they're looking to fly much higher. "Somebody texted me, 'Hey, you punched your ticket,' " coach Bruce Arians said. "I said, 'Yeah, we're trying to upgrade to first class.' " At 11-2 and winner of seven straight, Arizona seeks the No. 2 seed in the NFC and a first-round playoff bye. The Vikings, led by Teddy Bridgewater's career-best 335 passing yards, trailed 23-20 late and drove to the Arizona 31. Trying to get closer for a field goal, Bridgewater was hit as he tried to pass and lost a fumble, and the Cardinals ran out the final five seconds. Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said he considered kicking with 13 seconds left but pointed out that a miss would have been second-guessed and indicated he disagreed with coordinator Norv Turner's play-call. "In retrospect, probably could have called something else or we could have kicked the field goal or whatever," he said.

TERSE PATRIOTS: Key offensive weapons Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman were back on the practice field, and Gronkowski has a chance to play Sunday night at Houston. The tight end, who has missed one game since hurting his right knee in a loss to Denver on Nov. 29, was listed as questionable. Coach Bill Belichick was asked how Gronkowski looks and replied: "We'll list on the injury report whatever his situation is." Edelman, who has missed three games with a broken left foot, is out for Sunday. As Edelman talked with reporters, a metal stool used by camera operators fell over. "Oh, there goes my foot. Thanks, buddy," he said.

Jaguars: Linebacker Paul Posluszny is out for Sunday's game against the Colts after having three plates inserted into his broken right hand this week. The team believes he might play next week against the Falcons with his hand wrapped. Second-year pro Jordan Tripp will make his first NFL start Sunday.

JETS: Cornerback Darrelle Revis fully participated in practice for the first time since suffering a concussion three weeks ago and is probable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

SEAHAWKS: Running back Marshawn Lynch rejoined the team as he continues to recover from abdominal surgery last month. Coach Pete Carroll said it will be week to week regarding when Lynch can start practicing.

FINES: Steelers kicker Chris Boswell was fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness after tackling the Colts' Quan Bray on a return. … Giants guard Justin Pugh was fined $17,363 for a leg whip that resulted in an unnecessary roughness call against the Jets. … Titans tight end Phillip Supernaw was fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness against the Jaguars.
