Lions signed WR Lance Moore, formerly of the Steelers, to a one-year contract.
The longtime Saint spent 2014 with the Steelers, catching just 14 passes in 14 games. Moore was a healthy scratch for Pittsburgh's Wild Card loss. Going on 32, Moore will be reuniting with ex-Saints assistant Joe Lombardi in Detroit. Signed for his sure hands and veteran status, Moore won't be assured of making the 53-man roster.

Steelers released WR Lance Moore.

With Antonio Brown catching everything in sight last season, Moore became an afterthought in the Steelers' passing game. Falling behind Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton, Moore finished with just 14 catches, his lowest total since 2009. Moore's release saves Pittsburgh $1.5 million in cap room. Coming up on his 32nd birthday, Moore will have a weak free agent market.
Mar 2 - 4:11 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports WR Lance Moore has requested his release from the Steelers.

Pittsburgh will likely willingly grant Moore his wish. 32 in August, Moore caught just 14 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with the Steelers. He was a routine inactive down the stretch and for the playoff game loss to the Ravens. Releasing Moore will clear over $1 million in cap space.
Feb 2 - 8:44 AM

Lance Moore was a healthy scratch in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Ravens.

Signed to fill the Jerricho Cotchery role, Moore instead flopped. The ex-Saint caught 14 passes for 198 yards with two touchdowns, falling far behind both Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant. Moore, who turns 32 in August, is no lock to return to Pittsburgh for the second year of his two-year deal. "I just want to play," he said. "Whether it is here or somewhere else, to me it doesn't matter. I'd love to be here."
Jan 6 - 8:29 AM

Lance Moore caught two passes for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.

Moore saw just the two targets. His score came on a fake WR sweep-turned-reverse to Antonio Brown where Brown hit Moore in stride for the three-yard touchdown. Moore has touchdowns in back-to-back games, but isn't a fantasy option as the Steelers' No. 3 or 4 receiver. He's merely a role player.

Lance Moore caught 1-of-6 targets for a 26-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 6 loss to the Browns.

It was the first time all season Moore drew more than one look. Perhaps now he'll finally move ahead of Justin Brown on the depth chart, who has been brutal from the opening snap this season. Neither will come into fantasy value across the season's final three months.

The Steelers believe Justin Brown is a better receiver than Lance Moore.

Some have been wondering why Moore, expected to play the Jerricho Cotchery role, has played just 28 snaps all season. The answer is simply that the Steelers prefer Brown, their 2013 sixth-rounder. Both players are far off the fantasy radar as No. 4/5 options for Big Ben.

Lance Moore played one snap in Sunday night's Week 3 win at Carolina.

Moore missed the first two games due to a groin injury, so perhaps the Steelers were just easing him back in. Or maybe he's lost No. 3 duties to Justin Brown. Either way, no one can complain as the Steelers hung 37 points on one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Lance Moore (groin) is probable for Week 3.

Moore will make his debut on Sunday night against the Panthers. He'll be the Steelers' No. 3 receiver behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 08:40:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has resumed practicing in full.

Moore missed the first two games, leaving Justin Brown to act as the No. 3 receiver. The veteran should be fine to return as a fourth option behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 12:25:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 2 game against the Ravens.

Moore will miss his second straight game and has yet to resume practicing. He'll have 10 days to get ready for Week 3.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 04:11:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remains sidelined at Steelers practice.

Moore missed Week 1 and looks like a long shot to play Thursday against the Ravens on a short week. He'll then have ten days to get ready for Week 3.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 08:26:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) is listed as out for Week 1 against Cleveland.

Expect the Steelers to turn to Justin Brown at slot receiver, although they may just focus on two-tight end sets of Heath Miller and Matt Speath, with Markus Wheaton and Antonio Brown outside. The Steelers have provided no details on Moore's injury, but he was never on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 03:06:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remained out of Steelers practice Thursday.

With Martavis Bryant (shoulder) also sidelined, the Steelers are looking like they'll be thin at wideout for Week 1. It could be a nice boost for Heath Miller.
Thu, Sep 4, 2014 03:51:00 PM

Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Moore played in the Thursday's preseason finale, so this looks to be a minor injury. Justin Brown has been getting the majority of his slot reps. Moore could return to practice later this week.
