Moore has been with the Saints for a productive nine seasons and fit the system in New Orleans well. He worked well with Sean Payton and his offense and developed a good relationship with Drew Brees on offense. He will have to work in with a new system as he becomes a free agent. He will get an opportunity to shine in a different jersey, but the Saints offense was a perfect fit for him. Hopefully he finds a good fit on another roster.
