The Browns announced that safety Rahim Moore had been signed. In addition, they announced that defensive back Don Jones and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor have signed their qualifying offers as restricted free agents.
Moore (6-foot, 198) is in his sixth NFL season. He spent the past year with the Houston Texans and the first four seasons of his professional career with the Denver Broncos.
“It’s a blessing. It feels like being drafted all over again,” Moore said in a release by the team. “I can definitely sense the aura on how this program is trying to change things around. Before I set foot in the premises, I've known the great history of the Cleveland Browns, from former UCLA great Eric Turner to Don Rogers to Thom Darden, it's a great place to be and I really felt like this was a great opportunity for me and a great fit, so I'm really excited.”
A former second-round pick out of UCLA, Moore has appeared in 64 games with 54 starts. Over five seasons, he has 212 tackles, 22 passes defensed, nine interceptions, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and one sack. This past season, he started in six of seven games and accumulated 16 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception.
Moore went to the same high school that Hue Jackson and Kirby Wilson attended, Susan Miller Dorsey High School in Los Angeles.
“I want to be a guy who comes in every day to work to be the best,” Moore said. “I'm a team guy. I'm a guy that can come help force turnovers, comes in and puts in work in the film room, get in early, leave late, very inquisitive when it comes to the game of football. I'm just a guy that loves the game. I love the history of the NFL. I want to help this program win and compete.”
