Lance Moore hoping to be back with Lions in 2016

After a disappointing 2014 campaign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, wide receiver Lance Moore bounced back this season with the Detroit Lions and found his love for football again. Moore will be a free agent this offseason, but has stated that he would like to return to the Lions for 2016.

“I’d love to be back here for another year.” Moore said.

The Lions brought in Moore mainly because of his familiarity with then-offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi’s offense from their time together in New Orleans. Even after Lombardi was fired, Moore still found success under Jim Bob Cooter’s offense.

Moore finished the 2015 season with 29 receptions for 337 yards and four touchdowns, including a 100-yard effort in Detroit’s first win of the season against the Chicago Bears. Though Moore did not put up huge numbers week-to-week, he came in and made some clutch receptions when he was needed. He also built a solid chemistry with Matthew Stafford as the season progressed.

It is unclear whether new general manager Bob Quinn will bring back Moore for another season, but there is no question that the Lions’ receiving core lacks depth outside of Golden Tate and Calvin Johnson, who is considering retirement.

Moore is a true slot receiver who did a good job filling the No. 3 receiver spot for the Lions and Moore believes Detroit has a chance to be “scary good” in 2016.

Even if Lance Moore does not get re-signed by the Lions, he is sure to find a spot on another team after a bounce-back year.
