The NOLA.com.released cornerback Sterling Moore on Wednesday morning, per
Moore was the Saints' top cornerback for most of 2016 as he started 12 games after signing in September, but he had a significantly decreased role this season because the team's young cornerbacks have played well.
Delvin Breaux is also on schedule to return soon after starting the season on injured reserve, and Moore would've had an even tougher path to playing time with Breaux back.
The 27-year-old Moore joined the Saints last year after they dealt with injuries, breaking up a team-high 13 passes and tying for the team lead with two interceptions.
ESPN noted that Moore was "barely playing this year -- active in only two games with three tackles behind younger corners, and . Lattimore has emerged as New Orleans' No. 1 cornerback and has been one of the NFL's top rookies this season."
