(May 2, 2017) -- Former UTSA safety Jordan Moore was one of 21 undrafted college free agents that have agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons, the National Football League (NFL) franchise announced on Monday.

Moore, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 225 pounds, is the first Roadrunner to be announced as a new member of an NFL club this spring and he becomes the seventh player in program history to join the professional ranks.

The former NCAA All-American in track & field earned honorable mention All-Conference USA accolades in his first collegiate campaign playing defense last fall. He appeared in all 13 games with 12 starts, registering 49 tackles (22 solos/27 assists), three pass breakups, one interception and a forced fumble. Moore also averaged 20.2 yards on five kickoff returns, including a season-long 32-yarder at Colorado State (Sept. 10).

He posted a season-best eight stops at No. 22 Texas A&M (Nov. 19) and added seven tackles at Colorado State (Sept. 10). Moore also picked off a pass and racked up six stops at Middle Tennessee (Nov. 5).

Moore is a native of Atlanta.
