Giants signed S Rahim Moore, LB Curtis Grant, RB Daryl Virgies and OG Martin Wallace to reserve/future contracts.
Moore is still only 27 (next month), but spent 2016 out of the league after flopping mightily with the Texans in 2015. He'll be unlikely to crack the Giants' 53-man roster. Jan 12 - 7:16 PM

Browns released S Rahim Moore.

He got beat out by UDFA Derrick Kindred behind starters Jordan Poyer and Ibraheim Campbell. 26-year-old Moore will resume hunting for backup work.

Browns signed S Rahim Moore to a one-year, $1.85 million contract.

Moore was a disaster his only season in Houston, getting benched after seven games and playing just 451 snaps. With Tashaun Gipson gone, he'll give Cleveland veteran insurance opposite Donte Whitner. One of the worst run-stopping safeties in the league, Moore's role should be limited to sub packages.

Texans released S Rahim Moore.

Signed to a "three-year, $12 million" deal last March, Moore's Texans career ended up lasting all of seven games. He was benched for Andre Hal after performing as one of the league's worst defensive backs. Moore is still only 26, but he's going to be limited to one-year, incentive-laden offers after a disastrous 2015. Combined, the Texans' cuts of Moore, Arian Foster, and Garrett Graham have saved the team nearly $12 million in cap room.

The Texans are expected to release FS Rahim Moore.

Signed to a three-year, $12 million deal last March, Moore was a total dud in what'll likely prove his only season in Houston, losing his starting job to ex-cornerback Dre Hal early last November. Releasing Moore will save the Texans over $2 million in salary cap room. Moore could perhaps intrigue the Raiders. He had the best season of his career under Jack Del Rio with Denver in 2014, and Oakland has one of the NFL's worst safety depth charts.

The Texans have benched FS Rahim Moore in favor of Andre Hal.

Hal is a converted cornerback. The Texans signed Moore to a three-year, $12 million deal in the offseason, but he has been a missed tackle machine while failing miserably in coverage.

Texans signed FS Rahim Moore to a three-year, $12 million contract.

Moore became the best safety available after Devin McCourty re-signed with the Patriots. Still just 25, Moore is a liability against the run, but he has plus coverage skills and top-notch ball skills. Few safeties man center field as effectively as Moore. The Broncos have now lost three defensive starters from last season (Moore, Nate Irving and Terrance Knighton).

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans are "closing in" on a deal with free agent FS Rahim Moore.

It's not a surprise after Moore visited Houston on Wednesday. Moore enjoyed a breakout year with the Broncos last season, leading the team with four interceptions. He'll join a strong secondary that already includes Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph.

Free agent FS Rahim Moore is visiting the Texans on Wednesday.

With Danieal Manning and Kendrick Lewis free agents, the Texans are in the market for a starting free safety next to big hitter SS D.J. Swearinger. Moore is easily the best safety available after Devin McCourty re-signed with the Patriots.

The Giants are showing interest in free agent FS Rahim Moore.

Devin McCourty is the crown jewel of free agent safeties; Moore is the next best thing. The Giants plan to pursue both, though signing McCourty would come at a greater cost. Moore is expected to command $5-8 million annually while McCourty could go for as much as $10 million a year. Even if Moore doesn't end up in New York, it's a near certainty he's done in Denver.

The Denver Post anticipates free agent FS Rahim Moore commanding more than $5 million annually on the open market.

The Post names the Eagles as a potential suitor, as new Philly DBs coach Corey Undlin was Moore's position coach the past two years. Philadelphia is flush with salary cap space and has a perennial need at safety. The Broncos already have big money committed to CBs Aqib Talib and Chris Harris, as well as SS T.J. Ward. Moore leaving Denver is seen as a foregone conclusion.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold expects the Broncos to let FS Rahim Moore walk in free agency.

Moore tied for the team lead in interceptions in 2014, but with Demaryius Thomas also headed for free agency, Moore isn't the team's top priority. Denver is already loaded at defensive back with Pro Bowlers Chris Harris Jr., Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, so it isn't the end of the world if they lose Moore. The Eagles, Ravens and Redskins could all use upgrades in the secondary.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore is completely recovered from the lateral compartment syndrome that ended his 2013 season.

Moore nearly lost his leg as a result of the rare and scary injury, but now all that remains is a large scar. He's penciled back in as the starting free safety, a role he shined in last season.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) has yet to be cleared for a running program.

Moore suffered a recent setback with his leg injury, putting his chances of returning for the postseason in jeopardy. He isn't eligible to come off injured reserve until the AFC Championship game, and would likely be limited to a situational role if he manages to get cleared. Mike Adams will continue to start in his absence. Moore graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 8 cover safety prior to going down and would provide an upgrade to the Broncos' secondary when healthy.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) said he expects to be medically cleared in January.

Moore is currently on short-term injured reserve and will miss the entire regular season, but is on track to return for the playoffs. He hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from lower leg surgery and was cleared to resume weight training this week. An every-down player before getting hurt, Moore should immediately regain his starting role from Mike Adams when healthy. He had 44 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games prior to going down.
