Lance Moore’s days in New Orleans are apparently done.
Moore, who was the longest-tenured player on the team, took to Twitter on Friday morning and indicated that it’s time to say goodbye.
“Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years. Who Dat Nation, the best on earth,” Moore wrote.
The Saints were shopping Moore in a trade, but it’s hard to imagine any other team giving anything up for a receiver who will turn 31 before the season and had only 37 catches for 457 yards last year. So Moore’s message seems to suggest that he’s going to be released.
Cutting Moore will give the Saints $3.8 million in cap space, and for a team that’s in a very tough cap situation right now, it’s a move that makes a lot of sense. Even if it will be tough for Moore and for Saints fans, to say goodbye after nine good years.
