The Falcons will sign veteran wide receiver Lance Moore.
Can confirm the Falcons intend to sign former Saints wide receiver Lance Moore, as Profootballtalk reported…. https://t.co/VlTygqOFmp

Moore spent eight seasons with the rival New Orleans Saints. He was a reliable slot receiver for Drew Brees and caught for over 1,000 yards in 2012. However, his last two seasons outside of New Orleans have been less than spectacular. He caught 29 balls for 337 yards and 4 touchdowns for the Lions last season. Moore will likely battle with second-year receiver, Justin Hardy, for the number three receiver role. Hardy impressed in a small role for the Falcons last year, and if nothing else, Moore will provide a nice veteran presence to mentor Hardy and the rest of the receiving core.
