NASHVILLE – The Titans have added veteran depth in the secondary – and on special teams – in former Texans defensive back A.J. Moore.

Moore and the Titans agreed to a one-year deal.

Moore, 26, played the past four seasons with the Houston Texans, working at safety and on special teams.

An undrafted safety out of Ole Miss in 2018, Moore played in 55 games for the Texans, with five starts. He's been credited with 67 tackles, one sack, one pass defensed and two forced fumbles.

Moore (5-11 200) played in 12 games for the Texans in 2021.

Moore's biggest role from 2018-2021 was on special teams, where he's expected to help bolster Tennessee's special teams units.

Moore initially signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent following the 2018 draft, but he was waived at the end of the preseason as part of the team's final roster cuts. He was then claimed by the Texans.

In his rookie season Moore appeared in all 16 of the Texans regular season games, playing exclusively on special teams and making a team-leading 11 tackles and recovering one fumble.

Moore was named a team captain by the Texans for the 2020 season.

Moore has an identical twin brother, C.J. Moore, who was also a defensive back at Ole Miss and now plays for the Detroit Lions.
