New Orleans Saints' Lance Moore On His Way Out

In this article…

The New Orleans Saints will release veteran wide receiver Lance Moore after nine seasons with the team, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter

Moore was due to make $3.8 million this season and had 2 years left in his contract. With his release, the Saints gain about $2.5 million in cap space, and could possibly save the entire 3.8 if they designate the move post-June 1. 

The veteran wide receiver tweeted his goodbye to the fans on Friday morning. The move comes as no surprise considering the Saints are close to the salary cap after giving tight end Jimmy Graham the franchise tag and issuing the restricted free agent tender to safety Rafael Bush. Moreover, Moore fell out of favor due to the emergence of rookie receiver Kenny Stills. Last season, Moore caught 37 passes with 457 yards receiving and two touchdowns in 13 games. 

Moore was the longest tenured player on the Saints, having signed on with the team's practice squad in 2005. Moore served mainly as an effective secondary weapon for Drew Brees. The undrafted receiver from Toledo finishes with 346 receptions (4th in team history), 4,281 yards (6th), and 38 touchdowns (5th). He had first and only 1,000 yard season in 2012, where he accumulated 1,041 receiving yards with 65 receptions and six touchdowns.

Moore will be missed in New Orleans for his awesome touchdown celebrations.
