Moore signed a one-year deal with the Lions on Tuesday, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

Moore will likely have to compete for a roster spot, after catching just 14-of-27 targets for the Steelers in 2014. He'll turn 32 in August, but he does have the Lions' lack of depth at his position working in his favor.

Moore was released by the Steelers on Monday, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsbrugh Tribune-Review reports.

Moore dealt with a groin injury early in the season, and he never established any kind of consistent role in the Pittsburgh offense. Now heading into his age-32 campaign, the former Saint may need to compete for a roster spot wherever he lands, despite being just three years removed from a 1,000-yard season. New Orleans would be a logical landing spot, but even in that scenario, Moore probably wouldn't have a big role in the offense.

Moore has requested his release from Pittsburgh, according to ESPN.com reporter Adam Schefter.

Moore, 32, caught just 14 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with the Steelers. He has one year remaining on his contract, but releasing him would clear over $1 million in cap space.

Moore is inactive for Saturday's game against Baltimore, Baltimore Sun writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.

Moore's inactive status is a bit surprising at a glance, but he's been reduced to a non-factor in the Pittsburgh offense and doesn't offer special teams utility.

Moore had no receptions, playing just 12 offensive snaps, in Pittsburgh's 27-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday night.

Moore finished the season with 14 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns. He has one year remaining on his contract, but is not guaranteed to return for Pittsburgh next season.

Moore was targeted twice, catching both passes for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 30-23 win against Houston on Monday night.

His score came on a trick pass play from fellow receiver Antonio Brown, giving Moore a touchdown reception for the second straight game. His current fantasy value is touchdown dependent, making him little more than a bye week replacement.

Moore had one reception for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 31-10 loss to Cleveland on Sunday.

Trailing 21-3 forced Pittsburgh to throw the ball, with Moore being targeted six times, all in the second half of the game. The fact that he had just the one catch, albeit a touchdown, was disappointing and should serve as a reminder to fantasy owners that he has no business being in their lineup.

Moore caught one pass for 12 yards in Pittsburgh's 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Moore finally has a reception in 2014, but is still buried on the depth chart. Even with Ben Roethlisberger distributing the ball to eight different receivers, Moore offers little to fantasy owners at the moment.

Though he said after the game that he is healthy, Moore (groin) played just one offensive snap in Sunday night's 37-19 win over the Panthers, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsbrugh Tribune-Review reports.

Despite struggling in the first two games, Justin Brown surprisingly got the nod over Moore as the third receiver in three-wide formations. However, Brown may have left the door open by turning in another lackluster performance, as he caught just 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards. Even if he eventually usurps Brown, Moore will be the fourth or fifth receiving option in an offense that heavily relies on Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.

Moore (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Scott Brown reports.

As expected, Moore will make his Steelers debut working as the No. 3 wide receiver. Even though Pittsburgh heavily relies on three-wide formations, Moore may have a hard time finding targets some weeks. He should represent an upgrade from Justin Brown, who struggled badly as the team's No. 3 wideout for the first two weeks of the season.
