The Buccaneers have added another piece for their secondary.

Tampa announced Thursday that they have agreed to terms with cornerback Sterling Moore. Moore visited with the Bucs as part of a free agency tour that also included stops with the Steelers and 49ers.

Moore became a free agent when the Cowboys opted not to tender him as a restricted free agent. Moore played 16 games and made seven starts for the Cowboys last season, making 46 tackles and forcing a fumble as a useful part of the Dallas secondary. He played his first NFL games with the Patriots in 2011 when current Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht worked in New England.

Moore will likely be competing for time in sub packages with the Bucs and could be their third cornerback come September. Mike Jenkins and Leonard Johnson are the other experienced corners behind Alterraun Verner and Johnthan Banks.
