The Saints ended up releasing Emmanuel Sanders this season after signing him to a two-year contract last offseason. Unfortunately, the salary cap proved to be too much for Sanders’ $7.5 million per year this offseason.

That leaves the team short a receiver. Of course, they still have Tre’Quan Smith and Deonte Harris — two players who stepped up big time in Michael Thomas‘s absence last year. Then, the team also does still have Michael Thomas, but it doesn’t hurt to have another young star receiver.

The Big 10 receiver totaled over 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards in his freshman season. He also accumulated 12 touchdowns in 13 games. 2018 was undoubtedly Moore’s best season as he only played in seven total games his sophomore and junior year.

However, that didn’t stop the receiver from averaging 13.3 yards per receptions in the four games he played in his sophomore season. Moore’s speed and agility are apparent every time he touches the ball. He is a guaranteed big-play threat every down.
