FORMER SAINTS WR ON STEELERS RADAR
The Pittsburgh Steelers are showing strong interest in former New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore. The 30 year old Moore will visit the Steelers on Tuesday, per Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.
Moore, 30, had an injury plagued 2013 season, collecting 37 receptions for 459 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Moore, though, had a strong 2012 campaign with 65 receptions, 1,041 yards and 6 touchdowns. The 5-foot-9 Moore has a lot of playmaking ability and fits the quick passing game the Steelers have developed under Todd Haley.
What’s intriguing with Moore is that he has a knack for finding the endzone. Moore had touchdown seasons of 10 in 2008, 8 in 2010 and 2011, and a 6 touchdown season in 2012.
In his career Moore has 346 receptions for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns.
The Steelers with under $4 million in cap space, are looking for bargains on the free agent market. Moore was due to make $3.8 million this season prior to being released by the Saints.
