Then fast forward to late this morning, he signs with the Dallas Cowboys for a one-year deal. But Moore has informed the Cowboys that he could not get on the flight, and has retired.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, “Moore could not bring himself to get on the plane and leave his family.” Now, the Cowboys are expected to turn to free agent guard Brian Waters.

“I’m a man of my word,” Moore said. “I hated letting [Cowboys OC and OL coach] Bill [Callahan] down.”

Callahan was Moore’s offensive line coach and assistant head coach with the Jets from 2008 through 2011.

Now, he ends his 10-year career with a 142 starts and a 2011 Pro Bowl.
