Browns Come to Terms with Safety Rahiem Moore on One-Year Deal

While the Browns dumped some players on Wednesday, they also came to terms with one, inking free agent safety Rahiem Moore to a one-year deal.

Moore comes to the Browns after playing with the Texans in 2015, he was a second-round pick of the Broncos in 2011, and played four years with the Broncos before going to Houston.

The Texans brought Moore aboard with a three-year deal worth $12 mil, but he lasted just one season with the Texans and was released on March 3rd.

The 26-year-old played just seven games in Houston, making 16 combined tackles and intercepting one pass.

Bleacher Report states that Moore nearly lost his leg last season due to acute compartment syndrome.

The problems for Moore began back in November, when he nearly lost his leg as a result of acute compartment syndrome. The MMQB’s Joan Niesen described it as a condition in which pressure builds up in muscles. As a result, cells inside the muscles die altogether. Niesen added that had he waited another day later or longer to go to the hospital, Moore’s leg likely would’ve been amputated, and his life could’ve been in grave danger.

Moore will battle it out at free safety with Jordan Poyer.
