Damontre Moore was a third-round pick of the New York Giants in 2013, and even tallied 5.5 sacks for the G-Men in 2014.

And then things went down hill.

He was realized in 2015 after fighting over a pair of free Beats by Dre headphones with a teammate. From there, he bounced around, getting into trouble again, appearing on video after involvement in a street fight, according to the NY Post.

Moore looks hungry for a ticket back to the NFL, and is leaving it all on the field. He’s tallied at least five pressures in his last four games. His 27 total pressures rank third in AAF, and he’s even missed a game.

EDGE defenders are like water. You simply can never have enough. Currently, the position looks stellar on paper with Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon set to chase quarterbacks in 2019, however, all it takes is one injury to mess things up.

The Browns still have Emmanuel Ogbah, although it’s been reported they’re looking into possible trades for the former 32nd overall pick. Genard Avery had 5.5 sacks last season, but it looks like he’ll be counted on to play some strong side linebacker, replacing the recently released Jamie Collins.

Moore’s motor is running high and general manager John Dorsey has shown on multiple occasions that he’s not afraid to take someone with a questionable pass.

His AAF production, along with the chip on his shoulder to once again play under the Shield makes a Training Camp invite a no-brainer. The Browns may not be the only team calling, though.
