Wide receiver Lance Moore, who signed with the Steelers after being released by the New Orleans Saints this offseason, was one of the many players taking part in the first day of Phase One of the offseason program, which consists of strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation activities only.
Moore, who has 346 career receptions for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns, shared his thoughts on a variety of subjects.
On why he signed with the Steelers: "Coming from an organization where you won a championship, you want to go somewhere where you have another opportunity to win. Pittsburgh has six Lombardi Trophies. My job is to do whatever I can to make them get number seven."
On if he was excited to get the offseason program started:** "I feel like I am the new kid in school today. I was in New Orleans for nine years and this being my first real change I couldn't wait to get here and start the journey."
On the large turnout of players for the first day of workouts: "It tells you guys want to win. They are coming in here, working hard, and doing whatever it takes to make this team successful. I am just another one of those guys."
On what he brings to the offense: "I bring a lot of experience. There are a lot of young guys in the wide receiver room. I think I can come in and help these guys get better and teach some things and hopefully learn some things myself."
On how much it will help to have Bruce Gradkowski, who also played at Toledo, helping him get adjusted: "It's going to help a lot. If he were an offensive lineman or a tight end or something it might not be the same, but him being a quarterback and knowing the offense like a coach, it will definitely help me out."
