4. David Moore could be a utility lineman for Cleveland Browns
In a bit of a surprise move, the New York Jets waived David Moore, who they just added a couple of weeks ago after he was let go by the Carolina Panthers.
An undrafted free agent, Moore reportedly had a lot of suitors when he was cut by the Panthers and one of the teams trying to claim him was the Cleveland Browns. However, he landed with the New York Jets instead, but Justin Fried from Jet Press said there was good reason Moore was so popular when he hit the waiver wire.
"“Somewhat surprisingly, Carolina waived him this past week just a couple of weeks into training camp. The Jets immediately showed interest, as did three others teams — the Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, and Las Vegas Raiders — who also placed waiver claims on him. Moore was a popular name on the waiver wire, and for good reason.” — Fried, The Jet Press"
Fried also said that Dane Brugler had a fourth-round grade on him entering the draft but the Grambling State product never heard his name called. It’s a bit concerning that he’s about to be on NFL team No. 3 but the Browns apparently liked something they saw in him.
And if we are being honest, this move would be excellent for Moore. While he wouldn’t see the field much, if at all, during his rookie season, he would be working with one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL in Bill Callahan.
Callahan could help Moore develop as both a guard and center and he could even push Nick Harris for the role when J.C. Tretter does end up leaving the team. All those reasons are why this is a name to watch when claims are announced.
