DENVER — Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore was watching part of UCLA’s 42-14 win over Colorado and loving it.

“They’re improving,” said Moore, who played at UCLA from 2008-10 before being selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft. “I’ve seen growth. I’m happy. And I’m so happy for (Bruins running back) Johnathan Franklin.”

Moore is improving as well. He’s had his struggles and highlights and was fined $21,000 for his season-opening hit on Pittsburgh receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

“I’m progressing, and there’s good support guys here,” Moore said Sunday in Denver after the Broncos’ 37-6 victory over Oakland. “This is about all the hard work we put in in the offseason.”

Moore trains and works out in Florida in the offseason and hasn’t been back to Los Angeles in a while.

“I have to stay focused,” Moore said.
