Moore majored in business at Toledo.


Lance Moore was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns on April 29, 2005. He was later released and then signed to the New Orleans Saints' practice squad.


Moore was allocated by the New Orleans Saints to NFL Europe, where he played for the Berlin Thunder.

He was on the Saints active roster for 6 games and saw action in four of those games with roles as a returner and wide receiver. He was waived by the team on the 29th of October and then re-signed to the practice squad the following day.


On October 14, 2007, he got the first opportunity of his professional career to start. He started alongside wide receiver Marques Colston and scored the first touchdown of his career on a 7-yard end around against the Seattle Seahawks with 05:18 remaining in the second quarter.


Moore started the 2008 season as the Saints number three wide receiver. When number one wide receiver Marques Colston was sidelined with a broken finger, Moore was given more playing opportunity and made his way up to the number two position.

The 2008 NFL season proved to be the best yet for Lance Moore as he made the most of his playing time by starting for an injured Marques Colston and ended the season with 79 receptions, for 928 yards and adding 10 touchdowns.


Due to an ankle and hamstring injuries, Moore's numbers throughout most of the season have been down from his 2008 breakout season. However, when healthy, he was able to achieve a 6 catch, 78 yard performance against the Colts. In Super Bowl XLIV, he had two receptions for 21 yards in the first half, and a 4th quarter catch for a two-point conversion.

In 2011, Moore recorded 627 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2012, Moore had the best season of his career with 1,041 yards (a career-high) and 6 touchdowns. He finished second on the team in receiving yards.

Moore's role diminished in 2013 as he struggled with injuries, missing three games and recording only 457 yards and two touchdowns. He became the team's fourth receiving option on the depth chart behind emerging rookie Kenny Stills. On March 7, 2014, Moore was released by the Saints.


On March 21, 2014, Moore signed a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was released on March 2, 2015.
