Lance Moore signs 2-year, $3 million contract with Steelers Tuesday

His $645,000 bonus is the only guaranteed money of the deal.

The Steelers signed wide receiver Lance Moore to a $3 million contract over two years, including a $645,000 signing bonus. That's the only guaranteed money of the deal, meaning he got about half of what Jerricho Cotchery did from the Carolina Panthers.

Must Reads

Moore was released by the New Orleans Saints this offseason, losing out on the $3.8 million he was owed this season.

Injuries led to a statistical decline in 2013 after having set a career high with 1,041 receiving yards in 2012.

The Steelers lost both Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders this offseason, counting on the addition of Moore and development of second-year WR Markus Wheaton to fill in for their 113 catches, 1,342 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Also expected to step up will be veteran tight end Heath Miller, recipient of a new three-year contract his offseason after spending most of 2013 playing less than 100 percent. Second-year RB Le'Veon Bell will shoulder some of the burden in the passing game as well after a rookie season that saw him catch 45 passes for 399 yards, both marks good for fifth on the team in just 13 games.
