Free Agent guard Brandon Moore insisted that he was not going to retire, and wanted to continue to play football.
Less than two weeks later, he has signed with the Dallas Cowboys. Moore reached a one-year contract with the Cowboys.
It was expected that Moore or fellow free agent Brian Waters was going to sign with the Cowboys.
Moore was asking for a $4 million dollar pay day, but teams balked at that idea. So, Moore had to lower his price to sign with the Cowboys.
He previously garnered interest from the Detroit Lions and the Miami Dolphins.
The Cowboys are without their two starting guards at this time, as Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau are on the shelf. And Moore was the next available option, even though he was a free agent.
Moore also is not the only free agent that the Cowboys have talked to recently. Jerry Jones’ and his staff have talked to free agent Brian Waters.
This is the first time that he will be playing for a team other than the New York Jets. He was a member of the Jets from 2002 through the 2012 season, and even had a Pro Bowl season in 2011.
He has played in a 144 games, including a 142 starts for the Jets.
