The team announced on Saturday they agreed to terms with Moore on a five-year deal that will keep the safety in Atlanta through 2016. According to the Associated Press, the deal is worth a maximum of $32 million, with $14 million guaranteed. Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the deal.
Moore, our 26th-ranked free agent, was a guy the Falcons simply had to re-sign provided the dollar amount was right. As I noted in the Falcons free-agency preview, bringing back one or two of their own guys was critical for the Falcons this offseason.
Moore had four interceptions in 2012 and is a safety on the rise; he's not one of the top guys in the game or anything, but he's certainly a better-than-average option for Atlanta in the defensive backfield.
