Texans land S Moore

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Texans have signed free agent safety Rahim Moore, the team announced Thursday.

Though terms of the agreement were not disclosed, NFL.com reported the deal to be for $12 million over three seasons.

Moore joins the Texans off a solid 2014 campaign with the Denver Broncos, in which the 25-year-old recorded career highs of four interceptions and two forced fumbles along with 49 tackles. He started all 16 regular-season games for the AFC West champions as well as Denver's playoff loss to Indianapolis.

A second-round pick of the Broncos in 2011, Moore had served as Denver's regular free safety in each of the past three seasons and logged eight interceptions during his four-year tenure with the club.

Moore will likely take over at free safety for current unrestricted free agent Kendrick Lewis. He is Houston's second free-agent addition of the new league year, joining former Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Brian Hoyer.
