Saints Cut Moore; To Cut Sproles

The Saints are clearing up immense cap room.

The New Orleans Saints have released WR Lance Moore and are expected to release RB Darren Sproles.

Moore has been with the Saints since entering the league in 2005 as an undrafted free agent. In 2013, Moore played in 13 regular season games and totaled 37 receptions, 457 yards, and two touchdowns, respectively.

Sproles signed with the Saints in 2011 following a six-year stint with the San Diego Chargers. In 2013, Sproles played in 15 regular season games and tallied 220 rushing yards, 604 receiving yards, two rushing touchdowns, and two receiving touchdowns, respectively.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who received the franchise tag in late February, expressed his shock on Twitter.

Moore and Sproles have made significant contributions, but with the emergence of young players such as WR Kenny Stills and RB Khiry Robinson, veterans have been expendable.
