When the Dallas Cowboys cut former Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore back in late October, Moore was reported to be in an altercation at a nightclub. Video of a wild street brawl involving Moore just days prior has now been released.
At the time, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said that the decision to part ways with Moore had nothing to do with Moore protesting the national anthem or any off-the-field incidents.
However, that’s hard to believe as the fight occurred on Oct. 20, just four days before he was cut by the team. TMZ got a hold of some footage from the fight and made it public on Thursday.
Note: The video below contains some profane language.
While confronting a group of three men, Moore is punched in the face by one of them. Moore eventually comes after the same guy wearing black and rams him into a car.
Moore is struck a few times while being held by others. He’s then seen trying to reach through the sunroof of a Porsche before the men speed away in a car. In that moment, a possible gunshot can be heard.
Moore was a third-round pick of the New York Giants in the 2013 NFL Draft. In his five seasons in the NFL, he also played with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks before joining the Cowboys.
The 25-year-old, DeSoto, Texas native has appeared in 52 games, recording 55 tackles, 10 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.
