Ex-New York Giants DE Damontre Moore signs with San Diego Fleet of AAF

The Alliance of American Football (AAF), which was founded by former NFL general manager Bill Polian and is set to launch in February, includes a very distinct New York Giants feel.

Former Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis will serve as head coach of the Birmingham Iron, former linebacker Deontae Skinner will also play for the Iron, while former safety Will Hill will suit up for the Orlando Apollos and former punter Austin Rehkow will play for the Salt Lake Stallions.

Additionally, former Giants quarterback Josh Johnson, who returned to the NFL in 2018 and finished the season with the Washington Redskins, was the first overall pick protected in the 2018 AAF Draft.

Son of Giants legend Phil Simms, Matt Simms, will also play in the AAF.

Not enough flavor for you Giants fans? Well, there’s more.

Earlier this week, former Giants defensive end Damontre Moore, who was a third-round pick of the team in 2013, signed with the San Diego Fleet.

Moore, who never materialized in New York, was set to sign with the Fleet in December, but before he jetted off to San Diego, he was brought in by the Oakland Raiders, where he remained until being released one day before Christmas.

In 54 career games, Moore recorded 83 tackles (61 solo), three stuffs, three forced fumbles, 10 sacks, four passes defensed and two blocked kicks.
