Lance Moore and Steelers Agree on 2-Year Contract: Latest Details and Analysis

...numerous metrics point to Moore being a good bet. Pro Football Focus' wide receiver rating measured Moore as the No. 30 receiver in the NFL last season. His versatility was key. Moore lined up in the slot and out wide, ranking as an above-average option at both positions.
Football Outsiders' DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) metric had Moore 12th among receivers, though his limited sample of catches depressed his DYAR (Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement) value a bit.
Worked in as a second or third receiver, Pittsburgh shouldn't have much issue cutting Moore a paycheck in 2014. He'll help in the red zone, catch balls reliably underneath and provide a steadying presence in the locker room.
Not bad for a signing that likely won't create a massive ripple amid the glut of deals.
