For many, the news that the Pittsburgh Steelers had released receiver Lance Moore from the team on Monday was no surprise.

Moore, who was picked up as a free agent for the 2014 season and was given a two-year, $3 million contract. At 31, Moore had reportedly been frustrated with his lack of playing time and requested his release after rookie Martavis Bryant was able to secure the third receiver position as the team progressed last season.
Moore recorded just 14 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns with the Steelers after spending eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
With Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Bryant stepping to the forefront, it is likely the Steelers will address the wide receiver position, but will not be in the market for a high-dollar free agent and may even fill the fourth spot with an undrafted rookie free agent once training camp arrives.
