Sterling Moore knows what's it like to bounce around the league.
He's had many stops over the years. And since 2011, the only place he was ever able to really call home was Dallas, where he spent 2 1/2 seasons. Otherwise, his career has been mostly filled with quick stops before he's headed to the next place.
That's why sticking in New Orleans was important to him.
"I got what I wanted," Moore said during an appearance on Sirius XM's NFL Radio. "I wanted to go back to New Orleans."
Moore had offers from other teams. He even considered taking one and was heading down that road before the Saints came back with a one-year offer that the cornerback gladly accepted.
Bringing Moore back was an important move for New Orleans. The team needs to continue building depth in the secondary, and Moore, who had two interceptions and 13 passes defended over 13 games for the Saints last season, fits the bill.
Unless other moves are made, the Saints will likely enter the season with Delvin Breaux and P.J. Williams at the top of the depth chart, with Moore serving as the third corner. His ability to play both inside and outside is something that makes him appealing.
The cornerback is looking forward to being back and seeing what the Saints can build on defense.
"I think we can have something special," he said. "Everyone just needs to kind of figure things out. Last year was the first full year under the d-coordinator (Dennis Alen).
"I think the second year is always where you make the jump. I think this is the year where he kind of gel (and) everyone figures out how to play off each other. I think that was the big thing last year. We had so many new pieces. Everyone was trying to figure out how the other guy plays, where the help is going to be, things like that. Getting a full offseason with everyone together under the same d-coordinator is going to be huge for us."
