The Patriots’ receiver position is looking pretty good. They re-signed Julian Edelman, and brought in Brandon LaFell as well. But according to Adam Caplan of ESPN, free agent Lance Moore also recently visited New England.

Now I don’t think that this means the Pats will sign him, because as Caplan mentions, Moore is now headed to Pittsburgh. But I do think that it is interesting that New England brought Moore in for a visit, and that may have led them to sign LaFell yesterday. Perhaps they didn’t like what they saw from Moore, and decided to give LaFell a contract. Obviously this is all speculation, but his visit is definitely something worth noting for Patriots fans.
In eights seasons with the Saints, Moore racked up 346 receptions, 4,281 yards, and 38 touchdowns. Of course he has had Drew Brees as his quarterback for all of his career, and Brees makes everybody’s statistics look good.
