Dallas Cowboys defensive end Demontre Moore will return to the field Sunday after a two-game suspension to start the season. And according to the Dallas Morning News, he's talking tall heading into his season opener.
"I feel like I was in prime condition before I left, and I stayed working with [strength and conditioning coordinator Mike Woicik] and just kept working hard," Moore said, "so I feel like I can hit the ground running."
Moore, who has 10 sacks in his four-year career, recorded two sacks in the preseason.
"Moore will likely play defensive end, but he's open to taking snaps at tackle or outside linebacker if necessary," wrote the News.
The former Rowlett and Texas A&M standout signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys in March. Moore previously played for the Giants, Dolphins, Raiders and Seahawks.
"I'm in the best shape of my life," Moore said. "I've been learning. I feel like I've become more of a student of the game. It's about improving each and every year. If you stay the same, you get replaced. For me, I'm not trying to get complacent at all. I feel like this will be the best year of my career."
Moore answered questions in front of his locker Wednesday wearing a red hat with "#betonyourself" written in white letters.
"I bet on myself," he said when asked about the hat. "I control what I can control, do what I can do. And at the end of the day, if I can go out there and do what I can do, everything will take care of itself."
