Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Lance Moore’s stay with the Falcons turned out to be a short one.

The veteran wideout signed with the Falcons on Friday, but he has decided to draw the curtain on his NFL career rather than continue to compete for a spot in Atlanta’s offense. Moore announced his retirement through the team on Monday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons will have to look for another option for receiving depth after recently signing Moore.

The Falcons signed WR Lance Moore.

After recording 2,000-plus yards and 25 touchdowns for the University of Toledo, Moore was signed by the Cleveland Browns as a college free agent following the 2005 NFL Draft. Moore is entering his 10th year in the NFL and has played for three different teams. He spent eight years with the Falcons divisional rival, the New Orleans Saints, recording 346 receptions for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns. Moore has 389 career receptions for 4,816 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Moore could see time in the slot but it remains to be seen just what kind of role he'll have. He'll at least be behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Outside of that, Justin Hardy and Eric Weems are next up on the depth chart for Atlanta.

James Jones to sign with Chargers

With Stevie Johnson set to undergo surgery on a torn meniscus, the San Diego Chargers tested out potential replacements Tuesday.

They settled on James Jones.

The Chargers are signing long-time Green Bay Packers wideout, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source aware of the move.

Rapoport reported earlier that the Chargers were hosting Jones and former Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline on Tuesday, per sources. In addition, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported former Lions receiver Lance Moore would also work out for the team.

Fantasy Impact:

It's clear the 32-year-old has lost a step, won't get much separation from corners and will rely on timing with the quarterback to earn any production in his 10th NFL season, the story said. With Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin look like they will start, so the Chargers might be comfortable using Jones as a veteran replacement in a limited role in 2016. However as we reported several times, it's not out of the question Allen gets time in the slot with Jones on the outside.

They flew down to Atlanta on their own last month, one last break from vacation to get some work in before training camp started for the Detroit Lions.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson -- two of the longest-standing Lions -- organized the trip for the team's wide receivers and tight ends to all work together. The goal was to get some familiarity with each other before camp began so the offense could be as crisp as possible as fast as possible.

"It's always good when you're away for a while to get the group back together and just go through some things," receiver Lance Moore said. "Whether the physical or mental part of it, I'm not really sure which one was more important.

"I think hearing the plays and being around the quarterback and getting that communication back together is just as important as what we're doing physically on the field. We had a good group there. Everybody worked hard and hopefully it'll pay dividends for us."

The three-day workout took place at Georgia Tech, where Johnson played collegiately. The group would meet in the mornings, get a light lift in and then run routes at the Yellow Jackets' practice facility in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact:

Not every team in the NFL does this, for example Lance Moore said in the story he did not do this with Drew Brees when he was in New Orleans, but a lot of teams do something similar, whether it is publicized or not. A full ledger of who attended was not available, but tight ends Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria were in attendance along with Moore, Johnson, Jeremy Ross and Corey Fuller.
