Well, the Detroit Lions may have passed on taking a wide receiver in the NFL Draft, but they did not pass when it came to taking one in free agency.

On Tuesday the Lions signed veteran wide receiver, Lance Moore to a 1-year deal.

Moore, who is 31-years-old, spent his first eight seasons as a member of the New Orleans Saints before going to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2014 season.

As a member of the Steelers last season, Moore had only 14 receptions in 14 games and really struggled to see the field.

Moore will likely compete with Ryan Broyles, Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and TJ Jones for the No. 3 receiver spot.
