Steelers will host ex-Saints WR Lance Moore Tuesday

CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora Tweeted the Steelers will bring in free agent wide receiver Lance Moore Tuesday, indicating the team is at least looking beyond Jerricho Cotchery, in the event the veteran receiver isn't re-signed.

Moore's numbers fell off quite a bit from 2012 to 2013, having only 37 catches for 457 yards and two touchdowns last season. He had a career-high 1,041 yards in 2012. Moore has been with the Saints since 2006, after spending the 2005 season on Cleveland's practice squad.

Moore was a teammate of Steelers back-up quarterback Bruce Gradkowski at Toledo, and is from Columbus, Ohio, like Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell.

How serious would the Steelers be in Moore? The team needs a solid receiver if Jerricho Cotchery isn't coming back. He has a meeting with the Carolina Panthers scheduled for Monday.

Carolina must really be hurting with the cap, they are in a bind in the receiver department

It's strange, James Jones announced to the world that he wanted to play for Carolina with Cam and they (as of the weekend) hadn't contacted him at all.

Like Mitch said, maybe their cap issues are such that they plan on only using draft picks.

He would be a good fit there, they just lost a similar player in Emmanuel Sanders.

Moore has better hands than Sanders. Denver overpaid him. He is younger and all that but Lance is more reliable player.

Their salary cap is bad. Real bad. They had around $8 million before siging Harper, but almost nobody they could cut to make any room. Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams have enormous dead money. Hardy and Johnson account for $30 million on their own. Even cutting Steve Smith didn't save them a single dime.

They could save 2 million by cutting Greg Olsen, or another 2 million cutting Charles Godfrey, but those are two of their best players. And they have lost their top 3 wide receivers and 3 starting OL.

They were stupid to franchise Hardy. Should've let him go. He's not 16 million dollars good.

Be interesting to see if they can cobble together the money to keep Cam Newton when his contract expires.
