What you should know about new Browns DB Rahim Moore

One day after signing linebacker Demario Davis, the Browns added another piece to their defense.

Cleveland on Thursday signed safety Rahim Moore, who enters his sixth NFL season after stops with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans.

Moore, who was a standout at UCLA before the Broncos drafted him in the second round in 2011, should compete for playing time in the secondary following the departure of former Browns safety Tashaun Gipson.

Here's what you need to know about Moore.

1. The basics

Height: 6-0

Weight: 198

Age: 26

College: UCLA

Hometown: Los Angeles

2. By the numbers

NFL seasons: 5

Tackles: 179

Interceptions: 9

Pass breakups: 22

3. College days

Moore was a standout with the Bruins before declaring for the NFL Draft following his junior season. But it was his sophomore year in 2009 when he made a name for himself. That season, Moore led all of college football with 10 interceptions and was named an All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation, the Associated Press and Sports Illustrated.

4. Big season in 2014

Moore, perhaps, had his best NFL season with the Broncos in 2014, when he and cornerback Aqib Talib led the club with four interceptions apiece. Moore, who started all 16 games that year, also made 49 tackles, had five pass breakups and forced two fumbles.

5. Promising future?

Moore, who turned 26 in February, is poised to enter the peak of his career in the coming years.

And while he struggled in his first and only season with the Texans, Moore has shown promise throughout his five years in the league.

Coming out of UCLA — where he was voted an All-American and All-Pac 12 selection — he turned heads at the combine with his athleticism and was regarded as potentially a future All-Pro selection, according to an analysis.
