Kashif Moore was recently signed to the practice squad by the Houston Texans. He was an undrafted rookie out of Connecticut who has tremendous speed (4.32 /40) and great leaping ability (43.5 vertical). Moore, at 5’9 180 lbs, is projected as kick returner or possible slot receiver. He was with the Cincinnati Bengals but was cut and later awarded to the Indianapolis Colts on waivers. Moore was released and made another stop in San Diego with the Chargers before he was called by the Texans for a tryout.
The way I see it, Moore was brought in to be on the scout team to help the Texans better prepare for Wes Welker and Danny Woodhead. Moore is about the same size and has the ability of the two Patriots players. Although he doesn’t have the snaps, it helps to have a player simulate how they can and will be used. If Moore is to make this team, it will be as a return specialist (during the 2013 training camp), but he would have to beat out Keshawn Martin to do so, which is highly unlikely.
