Sterling Moore was one of the best acquisitions the New Orleans Saints made in 2016, but there's no guarantee he'll return for 2017.

Although Moore has expressed interest in re-signing with the Saints, he's expected to test his value on the free-agent market when the new league year begins Thursday at 3 p.m.



Moore joined the Saints in September after injuries ravaged the team's cornerback group, and his 12 starts were the most of any player at the position. He also led the team with 13 passes defensed, caught two interceptions and made 56 tackles.

Sterling is solid depth at the position. Please get this man resigned in New Orleans.

Re: Saints CB Sterling Moore expected to test free-agent market

Can't blame him; he had a career year.
Still, I don't see him as a starter on too many teams.

Rotoworld:
Free agent CB Sterling Moore wants to re-sign with the Saints.
He says the interest is mutual. Signed just ahead of Week 1 as depth, Moore ended up leading all Saints corners in snaps and received the best coverage grade of the group from Pro Football Focus, though he was still 71st in the league among 120 qualifiers. Moore won't command much on the open market. Feb 22 - 10:55 AM

Me: Sterling Moore was our best CB last season!

Loomis: We're gonna let him test free agency.

"I see myself growing with these guys and just doing something special, so I don't look at myself necessarily as a free agent even though my contract is coming to an end," Moore said then. "I have full intention on coming back."

Let him take a few phone calls and set the market. With our high-draft-pick-MASH-unit secondary, I'd love him to stay.

I just think that not a lot of teams are looking for a 5'10" journeyman CB from the worst pass defense in the league

Not inviting him back at the small salary he commands would be a slap in the face for all the work he put in for us last year where he was thrown into the fire to cover #1 receivers. He rarely got penalized and did a formidable job considering the quality of competition he was lining up against.

At worst Sterling is a good #3 and solid depth.

They would invite him back for a small salary. He just wants to know how small it needs to be. There is a good chance somebody overpays with all the cap money washing around the lesgue this year. We have 30ml and are still one of the poorer teams
