Exp. 8yrs.. Lance Moore. 16. player. 55. Lance Moore is entering his 9th season and first with the Steelers.  Moore was a steady hand with the New Orleans Saints for his entire career there.  Aside from his injury blip in 2009, Moore has stayed somewhat healthy and nabbed over 50 passes a season from Drew Brees.  2013 was certainly a down year for Moore.  That dip in stats was due to less of a drop in overall skill and more of an emergence of teammates Marquis Colston and Jimmy Graham getting the bulk of the work load.  Moore’s been primarily a slot receiver, and that is the role he will play in Pittsburgh – Jerricho Cotchery 2.0.  Moore’s expectations are just that – filling the shoes of a guy who caught over a third of the offenses touchdowns.  The expectation will be no less, and anything but close to a repeat of what Cotch did in 2013 will have many in Steeler Nation reeling that the front office could not keep Cotchery in town for one or two more seasons..
