Chiefs Free Agent Watch 2014: Is Lance Moore the Chiefs New #2 Wide Receiver


In case you haven’t been paying attention to the Twitterverse this morning, the New Orleans Saints have decided to part ways with wide receiver Lance Moore.

 

Being released today is actually hugely beneficial for Moore. He is now able to sign with any team he likes immediately without waiting until Tuesday when the market will be bogged down with other talent at the receiver position vying for the attention and the money.

Moore is a couple of seasons removed from his best year in The Big Easy which saw him haul in 65 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns however the 30-year-old receiver from Toledo, Ohio may have something left.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns in 2005, he was cut and then later signed to the Saints practice squad where he worked his way up to the starting roster.

What do you think, Addicts? Does the nine-year pro have anything left to give or should the Chiefs bypass this receiver on the open market.

Sound off below and let us know what you think!

    I’ve said it before and I will continue saying this about agents for older wide outs. This is not the year I would like to represent many of the veteran wide outs. Far too much talent coming up in the draft. Cheaper, although, not as experienced. as the vets, but, few vets are going to receive anywhere near what they had been making with their former clubs. Even Moore was released due to two things. First, a high payout due and, the emergence of rookie receiver who improved vastly in his first year. No, the Chiefs do not need to get older.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      If you gotta have an older guy though, Lance Moore would be the one to nab. We can still snag a receiver in the middle or late rounds.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    I’d take Lance Moore in a heartbeat. He’ll be 31 when the season starts, but that guy has a nose for the endzone, has great hands, and runs good routes. He’d be signed by the end of the day. He’s not going to command heavy coin and he improves the receiving corps.

    • Tristian

      Stacy I agree. Im not one for older guys but if I had to have one hed be it. I think he is capable of having those numbers he had a few seasons ago due to the saints will throw to anyone. If I came out of the stands theyd throw to me. Don’t get me wrong thats great but thats why thier recievers always are replaceable because they will have 7 catches one week and then 1 the next 2 weeks. In our offense he wont come off the field and he has shown at least at times he can dictate coverage or take away double teams from bowe.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        He doesn’t have the straight line speed that Reid typically likes, but he plays faster than he times and can separate with good route-running.

        • Tyson Wakefield

          He doesn’t have the breakout speed that Reid likes, but at the same time Alex Smith isn’t really a big down field passer. I think Moore is a great receiver for Smith. He runs good routes and has great hands. That’s all we need. We had so many dropped passes last year. We just need someone that can hold onto the damn ball.

        • Tristian

          Thats why guys like Aberderins and Marquise Lee will be steals. Your 40 time isnt always an indication of how fast you are. The tape doesent lie with those 2. I dont care if they ran a 4.7 when you turn on the tape they are making plays including running by some folks. Lance moore you’re right Stacy is exactly like that. Look at Marquise Lee’s 2012 tape and tell me thats 4.47 time which is what he ran at the combine. He has football speed and that tape of 2012 shows that and plenty more

  • Daniel Mayfield

    I’d go for him if he’s not demanding a huge amount of $. He’s got the talent and we’ve got Bowe on the other side. Give them better chances for deep passes. Teams won’t double up on Bowe so much. The end side passes and running plays will keep teams more focused on the Charles and the smaller guys, and maybe leave room for Moore and Bowe.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Need another reason to sign him? He’s doing the Nae Nae dance in the photo above.

    • berttheclock

      So, you want to hear some We Are Toonz over the loud speaker, eh? OK, let us try some NaeNae.

  • Troy Utt

    If the $$ is right I’d take a flier… Leaving KC the opportunity to draft/ concentrate on defense if Reid believes he will work out. Maybe not take a WR until later, 3rd or 4th round since the draft is deep in WR depth this year…

  • Jason Seibel

    Still hoping to hear something on this.
