ESPN’s Rich Cimini lands first interview with retired Brandon Moore Dan Leberfeld

Former Jets guard Brandon Moore agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, he decided to retire instead.

ESPNNewYork.com’s Rich Cimini landed the first interview with Moore after he retired.

Kudos to Cimini for that.

And here is what Moore told ESPNNewYork.com . . .

“I was wrestling with it all day, going back and forth with my wife and family. Finally, we decided, ‘Let’s go ahead and do it.’ I didn’t sleep at all. I was wrestling with it. I realized it was too late in the game to uproot my family. I called my agent and said, ‘I can’t do it,’ ” Moore told Cimini.

“I played the game for 10 years. I lived in a house. I didn’t have to go from team to team, so this would’ve been a big transition for me. You really don’t grasp it until you actually agree to something. Then it was like, ‘Wow, I have to leave tomorrow for California.

“I’ve been truly blessed. I don’t have any regrets about my career. I gave it my all. I’d like to be known as a dependable guy who showed up for work every day and gave it his all.”
