New Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Lance Moore is looking to prove he's not quite done yet.

The Steelers signed Moore in March shortly after he was released by the New Orleans Saints in a salary cap move. The 30-year-old Moore spent eight years with the Saints, catching 38 touchdown passes and helping them to a Super Bowl title.

Moore believes he can make an immediate impact in Pittsburgh. He is the leading candidate to replace Jerricho Cotchery as the slot receiver. It's a position the undersized Moore filled capably in New Orleans.
