Pittsburgh Steelers have today signed former New Orleans wide-receiver Lance Moore as the AFC North team pick up the former Super Bowl winner. 

Moore spent eight seasons with the Saints but he was surplus to requirements for the 2014 season as New Orleans look to go in a new direction. 

The loss of Emmanuel Sanders and Jericho Cotchery to the receiving corp meant the Steelers were left short of talent, making the signing of Moore even more valuable. 

Moore has had a mixed career with the Saints dependant his role in the team. In some years he had been the team's third best receiver and others he had been as a low fifth on the roster. 

In 2008, Moore gained 928 yards and that statistic was only been bettered by the former Saints man in 2012 when he earned 1014 receiving yards, the only time he's had a 1,000 yard season in his career

The Steelers need as much help as possible right now, and as it stands he would be their number two wide-out behind Antonio Brown.

NFL reporter Albert Breer explained, "Lance Moore will likely replace Jerricho Cotchery in Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown's the clear cut No. 1, and club likes Markus Wheaton a lot."
