The New Orleans Saints cleaned house big time and one of the casualties swept out the door was 30-year-old Lance Moore. Moore’s addition to the Steelers replaces a vacancy left by Jerricho Cotchery, who signed with the Carolina Panthers. Moore isn’t exactly overwhelming with only one season surpassing
over 1,000 receiving yards, so it would not be terribly surprising to see the Steelers target a wide receiver in the NFL draft to strengthen that position even further.
In a Thursday conversation with Around The League, Drew Brees waxed nostalgic about Moore’s status as an unsung hero of the Saints’ high-powered offense over the past six years.
Words are touching, but it’s still a bit sad to see the Saints lose so many players in such a short time. And, I’m not sure how much more if any we’ll see Moore in the Steelers passing game, as he was not relied upon much during his final year with the Saints.
Hopefully, his whacky touchdown celebrations will continue.
Excited to be a part of #steelernation Couldn't ask for a better organization to continue my career with!
