Saints Nation: Saints Re-Sign Lance Moore to One Year Tender, Release Running Back Christian Ducre

Wide receiver Lance Moore, pictured outstretched reaching for a crucial two point conversion in the last SuperBowl, has signed his one year restricted contract tender and is now officially back with the New Orleans Saints team. Like Pierre Thomas and Roman Harper, he hopes to sign a long term deal in the not to distant future, but this contract will do for the time being. This news was confirmed by Jeff Duncan's twitter page, which also announced the corresponding roster subtraction of rookie free agent running back Christian Ducre of Mississippi State. I'm a little disappointed to see him go because I was looking forward to seeing him compete in the preseason, but evidently the Saints saw enough in OTAs to decide he wasn't worth keeping around.

None the less, it's great to see Lance Moore back and hopefully it's for more than just a year. With that signing Jammal Brown is now the lone remaining restricted free agent that's still unsigned by the Saints.
