Chris Moore, Houston Texans

Let’s be honest, the Houston Texans were a train wreck last season. There weren’t a lot of great reasons to tune in to watch the second-worst team in the league struggle with every opponent they faced.

Through all the struggles, Chris Moore was a bright spot. The 29-year-old was a fourth-round pick of the Ravens in 2016 and was fairly invisible during his first five years in Baltimore, landing with the Texans for 2021 and 2022.

2022 was Moore’s best year as a pro. The six-foot-one wide receiver caught 48 passes for 548 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games played while starting seven of those contests for Houston.

Moore was on a one-year deal with the Texans worth $1.1875 million, making acquiring him a venture that shouldn’t cost a lot of money and it would give him an opportunity to work his way up a depth chart in need of a wide receiver to contribute when his number is called.
