NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints released veteran receiver Lance Moore on Friday. Larry Allen Jersey . Before the move was announced, Moore all but confirmed it with a note on Twitter, writing, "Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years. Who Dat Nation, the best on earth!!!" Cutting Moore, who was due $3.1 million in base salary next season, marked the latest of several cost-cutting moves by the Saints as they seek to create space under the NFLs salary cap to work out a long-term extension with star tight end Jimmy Graham. In the past month, the Saints have cut defensive end Will Smith, safety Roman Harper and cornerback Jabari Greer, who were all starters on New Orleans 2009 Super Bowl team. In addition, the Saints have said they would not bring back free agent linebacker Jonathan Vilma, a former defensive captain who has been hampered by knee injuries in recent seasons. "Just like some of the decisions we made on the defensive side of the ball a few weeks ago, this move today is just as difficult," general manager Mickey Loomis said. "Lance was very important to our productivity on offence and our success as a team overall. ... You couldnt ask for more from Lance both on and off the field and we wish him the best of luck." Meanwhile, there were signs of more moves to come. Running back and return specialist Darren Sproles, due $3.4 million in base salary in 2014, wrote on Twitter: "Thank you New Orleans for your support over the past 3 years! I will always be forever grateful. #WhoDat" The NFL did not release any formal transactions involving Sproles and the Saints did not immediately comment on the significance of Sproles Twitter post. Sproles joined the Saints as a free agent in 2011, setting an NFL record for total yards in a season with 2,696. Last season, Sproles, who routinely catches passes out of the backfield, accounted for 604 yards and two touchdowns receiving to go with 220 yards and two TDs rushing. He returned 29 punts, with his longest return going for 28 yards, and ran back 12 kickoffs, none for more than 32 yards. Moore entered the NFL with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2005 and joined the Saints practice squad later that season. "Lance Moore made a significant contribution to our teams success," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "While his production on paper is obvious, it only tells half the story. Lance came to us an undrafted rookie who went to NFL Europe and spent time on our practice squad. He went on to produce outstanding results on the field for us as a result of his work ethic, reliability and commitment to get better every day. Hes been one of the pillars of what we have built here as an organization." In 2008, he was New Orleans leading receiver with 79 catches for 928 yards and 10 touchdowns. While he was hurt for much of the 2009 season, he returned in time to help the Saints win their only championship. He made a difficult catch and dived for the pylon on a 2-point conversion that gave New Orleans a 24-17 lead over Indianapolis in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. The Saints went on to win by two touchdowns after Tracy Porters late interception return for a score. Moore had his last 1,000-yard season in 2012, when he made 65 catches for 1,021 yards and six TDs. Last season, however, Moore began to lose playing time to rookie receiver Kenny Stills and finished with 37 catches for 457 yards and two TDs, his lowest output in four seasons. Moore was due $3.1 million in base salary in 2014, so releasing him provides New Orleans more flexibility under the salary cap as it seeks to re-sign star free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham to a long-term extension. Jay Novacek Jersey . Some will say that Martin is too sensitive while others will say that it is part of the way football is in the locker room. But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much. Nolan Carroll Jersey . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting.Andy Murray is back in action as the ATPs Masters series starts in Indian Wells - who could the Scot face as he chases a first title of the season? Having taken time off following his run to the Australian Open final (another Novak Djokovic defeat), Murray plays for the second consecutive week having led Great Britain to a Davis Cup victory over Japan in Birmingham.Murray will take to the court aiming for a first title since becoming a father and also a first title in Indian Wells - his best showing in California coming when he lost in the final to Rafa Nadal in 2009, while last year he fell at the semi-final stage to Djokovic. The world No 2 blew away the cobwebs after his fatherhood-induced lay-off with victories over Taro Daniel and Kei Nishikori last week but who could he face in the US as he targets a first Indian Wells title. Spains Marcel Granollers has lost five of his six meetings with Murray Second Round - Marcel GranollersFirst up for Murray is Spains Granollers who beat Bosnias Damir Dzumhur for the loss of just one game in the first round. Murray has played the world No 92 on six previous occasions and has won five of them including each of the last three.Only two of the meetings have been on hard courts, Murray winning at the Australian Open in 2009 and the Toronto Masters in 2013 while the only win for Granollers came on the clay courts of the Rome Masters when Murray was forced to retired with the back problem that was to hinder him.Their last meeting came at the Madrid Masters last year, where Murray lost just two games on his way to claiming the title.It has been a low key start to the season for Granollers whose first round win over Dzumhur was only his third victory of the ATP main tour season.Third Round - Joao Sousa Murray beat Portugals Joao Sousa at the Australian Open earlier this year After starting with a Spaniard we expect a trip across the border for Murray and a familiar foe in the shape of Portugals world No 37 Joao Sousa - a man he has beaten on all seven occasions they have met.The pair clashed most recently in Melbourne at the Australian Open where Murray came through in four sets to seal a place in the last 16.Sousa takes on Argentinas Federico Delbonis in their second round match - should the Argentine prevail it will set-up a first ever meeting with the world No 2 and Murray should be wary as Delbonis has put together a couple of decent runs this season, most recently reaching the quarter-finals at the Rio Open.Fourth Round - Nick Kyrgios/Gael Monfils Nick Kyrgios celebrates after defeating Marin Cilic to claim his first ATP tour title Two players, one word - maverick. Whoever comes through from this section, Murray will know what to expect and that is the unexpected.Both men should come through relatively straightforward second round matches to set up a blockbusting third round encounter - both men have enjoyed good starts to the season with Kyrgios claiming his first career ATP title in Marseille and Monfils reaching the last eight at the Australian Open before losing in the final in Rotterdam.Murray will hope for Kyrgios given he has won all four meetings with the Aussie, the last three coming in majors including the Scots four-set first round victory at the US Open.Monfils has won two of his six meeetings with Murray, the world No 16 winning the last hard court meeting in 2010 although its Murray who won their most recent encounter, a five-set epic in the French Open quarter-final. Tyron Smith Jersey. Quarter-Final - Milos Raonic/Tomas Berdych Murray needed five sets to see off Raonic in an epic Autralian Open quarter-final Into the last eight now and it looks like a big server for Murray - even if there is an upset in the quarter it looks most likely to come from a returning Juan Martin Del Potro or focused Bernard Tomic.Raonic is a man in form with an Australian Open semi-final and a Brisbane victory under his belt this season while Berdych is a perennial quarter-finalist, so Murray is likely to face one of these two with both men ranked in the top 14.Murrays won his last three against Raonic including a five-set semi-final victory at the Australian Open, while the Canadian beat Murray at Indian Wells in 2014, coming from a set down for the victory.Berdych, the world No 7, has lost his last three against Murray including each of the last seven sets and the Scot would rather face Berdych than Raonics booming left-handed serve.Semi-Final - Stan Wawrinka Stan Wawrinka is likely to be Murrays semi-final opponent, if they both make it that far Stan the man, seeded third in Indian Wells should come through his half of the draw in relatively comfortable fashion. In-form Pablo Cuevas could be a lively contender, having won twice this year, while Marin Cilic is a likely quarter-final foe.However Wawrinka would expect to come through, as another of the five men with two titles already under their belt this year - the 30-year-old won in Dubai and Chennai but was a surprise quarter-final loser in Melbourne.Murray will need to reverse a recent trend too as the Swiss ace has won the last three meetings between the pair without dropping a set and, even more impressively, has won the last nine finals he has contestedFinal - Novak Djokovic A familiar foe is likely to lie in wait if Murray can make it all the way.... Yep, you know who again! The reality is that the world No 1 and four-time Indian Wells winner will comfortably stroll through his half of the draw. Rafa Nadal, Kei Nishikori and the richly-talented Dominic Thiem are potential stumbling blocks but the only danger to Djokovic is himself.In his last tournament he withdrew from his quarter-final in Dubai with an eye problem, his only defeat of the season, but he showed no ill effects in leading Serbia to Davis Cup victory over Kazakhstan - they will now meet Murrays GB in the last eight.The Serb loves the hard courts of North America and with Miami to follow Indian Wells it is worth noting he has done the double of winning both events back-to-back on three separate occasions.Since the Wimbledon final of 2014, Djokovic has won 11 of the last 12 meetings between the pair and boasts a 22-9 career record over Murray who can take some comfort from the fact his last win came on the hard courts at the Toronto Masters last year.You can watch all the action from Indian Wells on Sky Sports Also See: Tennis on Sky Latest scores Murray on Sharapova Nadal on Sharapova Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
