The Colts auditioned a handful of pass-rushers on Wednesday, and one player emerged with a contract. Veteran FNL reporter Aaron Wilson said that that Indy has signed Damontre Moore.

The 2013 third-round pick has truly settled into journeyman status after spending the first two-plus seasons of his career with the Giants. Since leaving New York, the defensive lineman has spent time with the Dolphins, Raiders, Seahawks, Cowboys, Raiders (again), the 49ers and the Seahawks (again). He also had a brief cameo in the AAF during the 2019 campaign.

The 28-year-old spent the 2020 campaign with the Seahawks. He saw time in 10 games (his highest total since 2015), finishing with nine tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. He also sat out six games thanks to a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. In total, Moore has seen time in 66 games, collecting 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, 12 tackles for loss and 36 QB hits.

The Colts were apparently sniffing around for defensive lineman, as the team also hosted Nick Coe and Davin Bellamy on Wednesday. Colts defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so the organization could simply be looking for some reinforcement. Moore will be joining a depth chart that features Tyquan Lewis, Kwity Paye, Kemoko Turay, Isaac Rochell, Dayo Odeyingbo, Ben Banogu, Kameron Cline and Muhammad.
