Damontre Moore Cut By Giants For Fighting Over Not Getting Free Beats By Dre
The New York Giants cut third-year defensive end Damontre Moore for a violation of team rules Friday, according to ESPN’sDan Graziano. Almost immediately the reason why started to surface, Odell Beckham gave out free Beats By Dre headphones to his teammates, Moore didn’t get any. He decided to fight about it.

More from ESPN’s Graziano:
Sources say Moore routinely clowned around on the practice field in front of everyone from teammates to Giants owner John Mara and responded poorly to efforts by teammates and coaches to get him to take practice more seriously.
Sources also said Moore feuded openly with some team officials, including general manager Jerry Reese, when confronted about his behavior. Reese is fiercely loyal to his draft picks, so for him to cut a former third-rounder during the third year of his rookie deal would likely require extreme circumstances.
