A former Saints Super Bowl winner, Lance Moore, wants to help the wide receiver room in whatever way he can.

Lance Moore was a crucial part of the New Orleans Saints sole Super Bowl Victory in the 2009 season. Lance Moore was the guy who scored the 2-point conversion that put an entire 7 points instead of five between the Saints and the Indianapolis Colts.

Now, he wants to help the team amidst their injury woes.

The Saints have faced lots of injuries this season, particularly in a wide receiver room that was supposed to look somewhat threatening. Michael Thomas has missed multiple games. Jarvis Landry missed Week 5 and hasn’t been a participant this week either, again. Now, Chris Olave is out in concussion protocol.

So, why not Moore? He wants in.

He’s only 39 and hasn’t played in 7 years, after all!

Lance Moore isn’t coming back, but he has an idea of who the Saints should employ

Lance Moore clarified with fans that he was being tongue-in-cheek, but he followed up with help in the form of a legit idea for how the Saints should rectify their receiver room: Odell Beckham Jr.

OBJ has been connected to the Saints due to legitimate interest and routine speculation, especially because Beckham played his college ball at LSU and grew up in Louisiana. It would only add to the story of LA homecomers with Landry and Tyrann Mathieu both signing with the black and gold this summer.

Unfortunately, it wouldn’t really be a means to an end for the injury issues. Beckham is still recovering from a knee surgery this summer, and it’s one of the primary reasons he hasn’t been signed yet.

The Packers or Chiefs could be a destination for him, or he could find himself back with the Rams.

Who knows how the Saints will fill the gaps, but it’s not looking pretty out there.
