Veteran wide receiver Lance Moore has decided to call it a career.

The Atlanta Falcons made the announcement Monday on behalf of the 33-year-old Moore, who signed with the club Friday and participated in practice Sunday.

Although his stay with Atlanta was short, Moore played in 10 NFL seasons since joining Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2005.

Moore did not play for the Browns and later signed with New Orleans, with which he played for eight seasons and enjoyed the majority of his success. Moore caught a two-point conversion from Drew Brees in the Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV victory over Indianapolis in 2009.

Moore saw his role diminish while playing one season with both Pittsburgh and Detroit. He recorded 29 catches for 337 yards and four touchdowns with the Lions in 2015.

Moore reeled in 389 career receptions for 4,816 yards and 44 touchdowns with New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Detroit.
