Steelers, WR Lance Moore agree to terms on two-year deal
For the first time in Lance Moore's nine-year career, he'll be playing for a team that's not the Saints. The 30-year-old agreed to a two-year deal with the Steelers on Friday.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost two wide receivers during free agency, now they've finally added one. The Steelers announced on Friday that they've agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Saints receiver Lance Moore.
Moore had two-years left on his deal with New Orleans when he was released by the Saints on March 7 in a cost-cutting move. The financial terms of Moore's deal with the Steelers haven't been disclosed yet.
The 30-year-old caught 37 passes for 457 yards for the Saints last season. Those numbers were Moore's lowest total in New Orleans since 2009 when he only caught 14 passes for 153 yards in a season where he only played in seven games.
During his nine-year career, Moore earned his money in the red zone, catching 346 passes for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns.
The addition of Moore means Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have at least one person to throw to in 2014 besides Antonio Brown. Two of Pittsburgh's three leading receivers from last season -- Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders -- have both signed on with new teams since free agency began on March 11. Cotchery is in Carolina and Sanders signed with the Broncos.
Moore won't have to wait long to face his old team. The Steelers will be hosting the Saints sometime during the 2014 season. The exact date of the game should be announced in late April.
