The 29-year-old has spent the last 13 seasons with the Bulls, but he was not offered a new deal and has now signed a 12-month contract with the MS3 Craven Park side.
Langley is Hull KR's fourth signing for the 2014 campaign following overseas trio Michael Weyman, Neville Costigan and Kris Keating.
Coach Craig Sandercock said: "Jamie is an outstanding person both on and off the pitch.
"With us having so many young players in our squad I thought it was important to bring someone in with plenty of experience and Jamie certainly fits that bill.
"The fact that he's played over 220 Super League games bears testament to that and Jamie is a very good player whose experience and leadership will benefit our club enormously."
Langley, who won the Grand Final with Bradford in 2005, is delighted to have secured his future so quickly after learning he would not be staying with the Bulls.
"After my last game at Bradford I was looking to get something sorted pretty quickly. I'd met with Craig previously and got on really well with him," Langley said.
"I was impressed with what he had to say and the direction in which the club is going. They had a good year this year getting into the play-offs and have made some very good signings for next season.
"There are also a lot of good, young players in the squad and I'm looking forward to getting involved and hopefully having a positive influence on both the team and the club."
