Texans re-sign Corey Moore
As an exclusive rights free agent, safety Corey Moore was always unlikely to leave the Texans and word came Thursday that he will definitely be staying in Houston.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Texans have re-signed Moore with the start of the new league year less than a week away.
Moore signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has played in 30 games over the last three seasons. He started 11 of those games, including the first three games of the 2017 season, and has been a regular on special teams. Moore had 27 tackles in 14 overall appearances for Houston last season.
Unlikely, huh? Thanks for the laugh. While I think the Patriots may go after a quarterback in the draft and I try never to say never I feel confident saying they probably won’t be signing Johnny Football. Sure the Patriots can minimize distractions well and give guys second chances. But in this case, with that player, I don’t see it happening. I also can’t see him fitting in with the Patriots offense. At all.
Throughout the time that I’ve been back home I’ve noticed some things in our local government I’d like to see changed, Rouse wrote on his Facebook page. My grandfather was an Army vet. He taught me the principle of leadership by example not to talk about change but to be the change.
A former third-round pick from Virginia Tech, Rouse played four years in the NFL. He had short stints with the Giants and Cardinals. He was also the MVP of the 2011 UFL Championship Game after he had three interceptions for the Virginia Destroyers.
I would not rule out drafting a cornerback, maybe even with the first-round pick. You can never have enough good, cost-effective cover guys. I do think McCourty will compete for a starting job, although Belichick’s game plan/matchup style could see them both starting in various weeks. Whether he’s a starter or not, I think J-Mac (as he’s goes by on the twin brothers’ combined Twitter account) is a solid addition who will very much help the back end. I’m not as high on the depth, though, if Jones is part of the picture. He’s shown me nothing over his two seasons, when healthy, to prove that he’sy to compete as a top-3 cornerback for a team. And now he’s coming off a torn ACL, which won’t exactly help his chances to break out in his third season.
