The question should be...

what happens if he takes Meachum off the field? Do we go to the Superbowl? Does Lance bring something were missing or do we loose something by putting him on the field? To me he's a product of the system. Sure he has great hands but he'd be the 4th receiver in this offense and a situational player at best.

With the emergence of Meachum and the steady hands that Henderson has shown, Moore only gets on the field in short yardarge situations. Still, can he block like the bigger WRs?

I could be way wrong. He reminds me of Wes Welker. Enough said.

If he wasn't a RFA, he'd be decent trade bait.

If Lance is willing to be signed to a multi year deal that isn't too expensive I say yes. If he would have had a similar season to 2008 this year he would have more money. But because he was injured...sign him but not too much money.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

We need to keep everyone together. Add a couple of DT's, a couple of outside LB's and a backup QB and CB in the draft but keep the same team intact. If the Saints can do that they will have a huge advantage over everyone else. If Donavan moves, Philly won't be in the hunt this year and if Favre comes back or not it's still hard on the team not knowing and preparing for it or not preparing for his return. It's just damn confusing. The Cowboys are totally unpredictable and the Giants defense needs alot of work. The Panthers are finished keeping Delhomme and letting Peppers fly. The Falcons should be better after some injuries to key players in 2009 but no where near the Saints. The Bucs will have a new coach after another season of losing. The Redskins will be better but Shannahan is not Breesus. The Lions, oh please. Green Bay will be there at the end but still not the caliber of the Saints or Minnesota. The Cardinals will be 7-9 after the Lineheart experiment. The 49ers will be good on defense but terrible on offense. The Bears will be 8-8 along with the Seahawks, so there you have it. We look pretty good going into the season coupled with a strength of schedule at #27 this season 2010 NFL Strength Of Schedule compared to last years #8 2009 NFL Strength Of Schedule - (SOS), nfl schedules, fantasy football
it looks Breezy once again in the Big Easy.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

I think Lance is a great fit in this offense, but let's face it, this was still the #1 offense in the NFL without him this past season. I think the Saints have a lot of leverage to not overpay for him, and if he asks for a big contract, I'll have no feeling of regret about it. I'd like him to stay, but there's no use in spending big bucks on a guy who is replaceable for cheaper.

Tender him a 2nd round compensation/ 4 accrued seasons.

If we lose him we get a 2nd round draft pick. If we keep him its relatively cheap ($1.759 million)

There are several teams out there needing a good receiver, someone could bite. It's a win/win situation as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

I feel like the FO and Lance will come to some reasonable terms.

And don't forget Lance can step in to receive punts. Remember this season with Lance out and Reggie questionable they were prepping Devery to receive punts just in case. C'mon man, Devery catching punts?
No, I'm sure they'll find some reasonable money to keep Lance. Simply put, he's solid depth that can't be replaced easily. I would say his biggest liability at this point is durability after his injury riddled 09 season.
Can we survive without Moore on the roster? Absolutely. But are we a better team with him on the roster and healthy? No question about it.

Re: Should the Saints pay Lance Moore?

"probably the best hands on the team"? He has the best hands - period. Just watch him catch the ball - EVERY BALL that's in his reach: high, low, behind him, in traffic, off the shoestring still in stride. The article talks about Henderson's new found catchability; mark my word, its just temporary; he still catches the ball with his arms, in his bread basket, and gets separated from it way too often because of it. Moore fought the injury bug "this year" but the other bigger frames (Colst-Meach-Henderson) are much more prone to the i-bug bites. No other receiver we have can get separation at will, like Moore can. Moore is one of our best receivers after the catch. Every players contract is evaluated in relation to all the other contracts that have to get done. I say do all we can to keep Moore on our team to continue to do the unique things he brings to this offense. It seems to me, the more easily replaceable components are Henderson and Meachem.

If we lose Moore, we'll have to find a replacement. Nobody on the team has his entire skill set, as far as I know. His hands are rare, and so is his work ethic.

Great hands yes, but he's no better an NFL WR than Colston, Henderson or Meachem.

And his work ethic is also no better than those 3 either.
