Saints Have Expressed Interest In Re-Signing DT Nick Fairley, G Tim Lelito & CB Sterling Moore

Herbie Teope of the Times-Picayune reports that the Saints have expressed interest in re-signing free agent CB Sterling Moore.

Fairley, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract in Detroit before signing on a one-year, prove-it deal with the Rams in 2015.

The Saints brought Fairley in on a one-year, $3.25 million contract last March.

In 2016, Fairley appeared in all 16 games for the Saints and recorded 43 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 34 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players.

Moore, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Methodist back in 2011. However, he lasted just a few months in Oakland before he was waived a few weeks into the season.

Moore bounced around a bit with the Patriots, Cowboys, and Buccaneers before signing a one-year contract with the Bills back in March of last year. Unfortunately, Buffalo elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

The Saints signed him to a contract right before the start of the regular season.

In 2016, Moore appeared in 13 games for the Saints and recorded 56 tackles two interceptions and 13 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 65 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players with a solid coverage rating.

We have Fairley and Moore featured in our Top 100 – 2017 Free Agents list.
