You've made quite a dent into the history of an NFL franchise when a fan base is clamoring for the next "you."

Lance Moore seemed like one of the unlikeliest of candidates back for that scenario when he scratched and clawed his way onto the New Orleans Saints' 53-man roster for first-year head coach Sean Payton in 2006. Moore worked his way from undrafted free agent from Toledo to fan favorite after eight seasons with the Saints full of sure-handed catches, creative end zone dances and one Super Bowl title.



There's been a search for the "next Lance Moore" ever since the Saints released him after the 2013 season.

"Yeah, I mean that's a pretty cool thing," Moore said. "And obviously I had a lot of success there and people are looking for somebody to replace me or be the next me there, but they (the Saints) have some really good guys."

He's ALOT more talented than Moore. Moore probably set a record for worst YAC in his first two season. Catch the ball. Fall down.

I don't doubt Lance's toughness for a second, Brees put him in terrible spots and he often came down with the catch.

The thing about Snead is he brings an attitude we've missed, he's a bigger Lance Moore with better elusiveness, I'm looking forward to seeing him going forward.

The "next" label is ridiculous. Moore is Moore and Snead is better!
