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.

Broncos placed FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Moore's regular season is over, but he'll have a chance to return if the Broncos make the AFC Championship Game. Moore's injury — essentially internal bleeding in his leg — required emergency surgery early Monday morning. An every-down player before getting hurt, the 23-year-old Moore was in the midst of a workmanlike campaign. He was playing very well in coverage. Veteran Mike Adams will take his place in the starting lineup, while Michael Huff is taking his roster spot.

Broncos FS Rahim Moore (leg) has been diagnosed with lateral compartment syndrome.

It's a very serious issue, one that could have led to Moore's leg being amputated had the Broncos not acted quickly. Moore is expected to miss "several weeks," with the Denver Post reporting injured reserve is a possibility. Mike Adams will fill in at free safety.

Sources tell the Denver Post that Broncos FS Rahim Moore will miss several weeks with a serious lower leg injury.

He could be headed to injured reserve. Moore went down in the second quarter of Sunday's night's win over the Chiefs. He's started each game so far this year, grading out as ProFootballFocus' No. 8 cover safety. Replacement Mike Adams will be a downgrade.

Broncos assistant secondary coach Sam Garnes said S Rahim Moore made a "big jump" as a tackler in his second season.

"His rookie year, he struggled in the tackling department and he went 180 degrees as far as tackling," said Garnes. "He did a great job tackling, which I know contributed to us being pretty good against the run." Despite his notable postseason struggles, Moore had a solid season grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 10 safety. He has intriguing IDP upside in 2013.
