The Pittsburgh Steelers have been looking for someone to replace Jericho Cotchery since he left for the Carolina Panthers and it appears they’ve found their man. According to NFL Network’s Albert Breer and CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora, the Steelers have signed former New Orleans Saints wideout Lance Moore to a two-year deal.

Lance Moore will likely replace Jerricho Cotchery in Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown’s the clear cut No. 1, and club likes Markus Wheaton a lot.

It’s and interesting signing to say the least, as while Moore has the ability to be an explosive and reliable option, his best games in New Orleans were spent indoors at the Superdome. He also had Drew Brees slinging passes to him in an offense that featured as many as three other bigger threats on the field at a given time.
Still, Moore could fit well for the Steelers despite playing outdoors, and if nothing else Pittsburgh has added a target that Ben Roethlisberger and rely on.
