Bears interested in Lance Moore?
5) Lance Moore/Wide Receiver/New Orleans Saints
Possible Suitors: Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins
Analysis: Moore, who has five years of service, would be a restricted free agent under the 2010 free-agency rules. While the Saints want to re-sign him, Moore should receive significant interest elsewhere once free agency starts if he’s unrestricted.
The Bears need to add at least one veteran wide receiver, so Moore would make sense to pursue. He would be a nice fit for offensive coordinator Mike Martz’s scheme.
The Browns could use a sure-handed wide receiver like Moore. He could quickly become one of Colt McCoy’s favorite targets. It doesn’t hurt that Moore hails from Columbus, Ohio.
If the Giants lose Steve Smith in free agency, signing a similar player like Moore would make some sense. However, third-round pick Jerrel Jernigan, whose style of play is similar to Smith’s, might have been selected because the Giants felt they could lose Smith.
The Seahawks really could use the sure-handed Moore in their offense. They really don’t have a proven player such as Moore on their roster.
As for the Redskins, Moore would fit in well with Washington’s timing-based West Coast offensive scheme. Plus, they have major depth problems at wide receiver.
This would be a good potential move, IMO.
