The Bills announced that they have signed Sterling Moore. With Moore in the fold, the Bills have now signed their third defensive free agent in two days. It’s a one-year deal, per Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (via Twitter).
Moore, 26, starting nine games at nickel for the Buccaneers in 2015. In total, Moore racked up 45 tackles, six pass breakups, an interception and three forced fumbles. Moore first broke into the league as a UDFA out of SMU in 2011 with the Raiders. However, he did not see regular burn until the 2014 season. In 2014, Moore ranked 22nd out of 108 qualified cornerbacks during his time at the position, per Pro Football Focus. Last year, Moore placed 64th out of 111 qualified corners, per PFF (sub. req’d).
Now, Moore will aim to see even more time on the field in Buffalo, though it’s currently a crowded group. The Bills have nine cornerbacks under contract as of this writing.
