Saints Release WR Lance Moore

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have released veteran receiver Lance Moore.

Before the move was announced Friday, Moore all but confirmed it with a note on Twitter.

Moore wrote: "Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years. Who Dat Nation, the best on earth!!!"

Moore entered the NFL with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2005 and joined the Saints' practice squad later that season.

Moore recorded his last 1,000-yard season in 2012, when he made 65 catches for 1,021 yards and six TDs.

Last season, however, Moore began to lose playing time to rookie receiver Kenny Stills and finished with 37 catches for 457 yards and two TDs, his lowest output in four seasons.
