Moore never lived up to the team’s expectations and he wound up being a healthy scratch for a long stretch of the season and was cut by the team this previous March.
Despite Moore‘s ineffectiveness, Houston fielded a solid defense in 2015 and the back end of the secondary played a big role in that. For 2016, the majority of the players will be the same, the main question will be who has earned enough trust to see the field more this year.
