NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - NFL sources confirm to FOX 8 that the New Orleans Saints will release wide-receiver Lance Moore after nine seasons.
Friday morning Saints wide receiver Lance Moore tweeted, "Thank you for an amazing nine years. Who Dat Nation, the best on Earth!!!!"
With his release, the Saints will save about $2.5 million.
The team is right up against the cap after placing the franchise tag on Jimmy Graham and tendering restricted free agent Rafael Bush.
Moore is a fan favorite, though his production slipped to just 37 catches and two touchdowns in 2013. He's just one year removed from a thousand yard season in 2012.
Moore was the final holdover from the Jim Haslett era.
