It was just a few days ago that the Falcons announced the signing of veteran wide receiver Lance Moore. However, to the shock of most people around training camp, Moore announced his retirement Monday morning. And of course, the shocking move created a stir on twitter. Here are some of the best tweets regarding his retirement.

We asked where Moore ranks among the all-time Falcons greats, and well we got some interesting responses.

Lance Moore may have just come to a realization that he does not possess the sauce anymore. He may have took one look at the stallions like Julio Jones, Justin Hardy and Mohammed Sanu and realized he cannot compete. However, Moore played his first eight seasons for the Saints and still considers himself a Saint for life. It would not surprise me if there is a little bit more behind this story. The Saints and the Falcons are one of the best rivalries in football today, and Lance Moore’s retirement might add a little bit more fuel to the fire.
