CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Browns have signed safety Rahim Moore to a one-year contract.

Moore spent last season with Houston before being released by the Texans earlier this month. He signed a three-year, $12 million deal last year but was benched midway through the season. He was inactive for the team's final nine regular-season games.

Moore is expected to compete for a starting job with Jordan Poyer. The Browns need a safety following the departure of 2014 Pro Bowler Tashaun Gipson to Jacksonville.

The 26-year-old Moore played four seasons with Denver, which drafted him in the second round in 2011. Moore has made 54 career starts in five seasons.

Also, wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and defensive back Don Jones have signed their qualifying offers as restricted free agents.

Pryor played in Cleveland's final three games last season, his first action after converting from quarterback.
