Gets new opportunity

Moore signed a contract with the Buccaneers on Sunday, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

Analysis: Moore was in training camp with the Bears in 2022, but he suffered a leg injury that forced him to miss the season. The 28-year-old spent 2021 with the Packers and Broncos, although he was unable to make much of an impact after his four years in Seattle. He'll work to earn a depth role in Tampa Bay's receiving corps.

Released from injured reserve

The Bears released Moore (lower leg) from injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Moore was slated to miss the entire 2022 campaign after landing on injured reserve, but he'll now have a chance to play again this season after he clears his current injury. The 2017 seventh-round pick caught 78 passes for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns during a three-year stretch in Seattle, but he appeared in just three games last year -- two with Denver and one with Green Bay.

Placed on injured reserve

Moore (lower leg) was placed on IR on Sunday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Moore was carted off the field during practice Aug. 9. The 27-year-old's absence for the 2022 season is another blow to the Bears' wide receiver corps, who will already start the season without N'Keal Harry (ankle), while Byron Pringle (quadriceps) has also missed time.

Carted off practice field

Moore was carted off the field after suffering an apparent lower body injury during 1-on-1 drills Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Moore reportedly displayed difficulty putting weight on his right leg. The timing of Moore's injury, especially if it is ultimately deemed significant, is brutal for Chicago's already-thin wide receiver corps. N'Keal Harry is believed to be nursing a high-ankle sprain, while Velus Jones (undisclosed) and Byron Pringle (quadriceps) have also sat out recent practices. As Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs approaches, the top healthy options behind Darnell Mooney may be Equanimeous St. Brown, Dazz Newsome, Dante Pettis and Tajae Sharpe.

Struggling with drops

Moore has had many dropped passes, both in one-on-one drills as well as in full-squad snaps, Gene Chamberlain of SI.com reports.

Analysis: After averaging 387 yards and and four touchdowns with the Seahawks between 2018 and 2020, Moore played in just three games (and 23 snaps) with the Broncos and Packers last year. During camp, he's struggled with drops, which will likely put him in a difficult position as he tries to earn a roster spot with the Bears.

Arrested in Texas

Moore was arrested Monday in Gainesville, Texas on drug and weapons charges, CBS 12 Sherman reports.

Analysis: Moore was released from Cooke County Jail on Monday on $5,000 bond, but he could still face discipline from the NFL in light of the arrest. The 27-year-old wideout joined the Bears on a one-year deal in April after appearing in three games between stops in Denver and Green Bay in 2021 and playing 31 snaps in total.

Signs with Chicago

Moore signed with the Bears on Tuesday.

Analysis: Moore will join Chicago after previously participating in the team's voluntary minicamp as a tryout player this past week. The 2017 seventh-round pick appeared in three total games while playing with the Broncos and Packers in 2021 and is coming off his first season without recording a reception since his rookie campaign. These poor results may be somewhat of an outlier for Moore however, as the wideout hauled in 78 passes for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns over 46 games with the Seahawks from 2018 to 2020 and will look to regain this level of production with Bears' second-year quarterback Justin Fields.

Apr 21, 2022 3:26 PM EST

Restored to practice squad

Moore was restored to the Packers' practice squad from the COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Moore spent a week in COVID protocols, but he'll now be able to practice with the team again. He was with the active roster in Week 17 and handled return duties. Whether or not hell have a chance to do that again now that he's healthy is not yet known.

Jan 10, 2022 4:59 PM EST

Shifts to practice squad COVID list

Moore has reverted to the Packers' practice squad and subsequently the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Moore was elevated to the Packers' active roster for their Week 16 victory over the Vikings. It was his fourth time suiting up this season, but he ultimately did not see any action. He will now be required to clear the league's health and safety protocols before returning to practice.

Jan 3, 2022 1:33 PM EST

Likely primary returner

Moore was elevated to the Packers' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: The Packers have been desperate to find a competent returner on special teams and Moore might just be the answer given his limited experience as both a kick and punt returner with the Seahawks. The 26-year-old briefly saw a stint with the Broncos earlier this season, but he could see a much larger role with the Packers if he's able to prove his competence on special teams.

Jan 1, 2022 2:32 PM EST

Joins Packers' practice squad

The Packers signed Moore to their practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Moore was cut from Denver's practice squad in early November but will now attempt to carve out a role with the Packers. He appeared in two games with the Broncos earlier in the year but failed to haul in either of his two targets.

Dec 30, 2021 3:20 PM EST

Cut from practice squad

Moore was cut from Denver's practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The wide receiver was added to the team's practice squad Oct. 20 after appearing in the Broncos' Week 4 and 5 contests earlier in the season, failing to make a catch on two targets. Moore did not crack the active roster this time around and now will look for a new squad.

Nov 9, 2021 2:33 PM EST

Lands on Broncos' practice squad

Denver signed Moore to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Moore suited up for the Broncos in Weeks 4 and 5, versus the Ravens and Steelers, respectively, but in that span he failed to secure either of his two targets. Now, the former Seahawks wideout will get a chance to develop on the practice squad.

Oct 20, 2021 12:59 PM EST

Released Tuesday

Moore was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: The move was not an unexpected one after the Broncos signed veteran John Brown last week. Moore was active for two games with the team but failed to get a reception. The 26-year-old will likely find another suitor for his services in the coming weeks.

Oct 19, 2021 3:27 PM EST

Not playing against Las Vegas

Moore (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Las Vegas.

Analysis: Moore had played two games for Denver after signing from the Raiders' practice squad, but he has only logged 23 offensive snaps -- so his absence here shouldn't have a big impact in most fantasy rosters. Moore's next chance to feature would be at Cleveland next Thursday.

Oct 17, 2021 12:24 PM EST

Catchless in loss

Moore failed to secure either of his two targets in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: In his second game as a Bronco after being signed off the Raider's practice squad on Sept. 27, Moore played on just four of the team's 60 offensive snaps. The veteran wideout's seven percent snap percentage was down from the 31 percent of offensive snaps he played in his Week 4 debut against the Ravens. With fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy set to make his return from an ankle injury in the coming weeks, Moore will remain well off the fantasy radar going forward.

Oct 11, 2021 8:48 PM EST

Heading to Denver

The Broncos signed Moore off the Raiders' practice squad Monday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: After four seasons in Seattle to begin his career, Moore found a new home in Carolina in the offseason, but the emergence of rookie Terrace Marshall caused the Panthers to include the former in their final roster cuts. Moore quickly found employment in Las Vegas, and after waiting three weeks he's landed with a WR-needy team. Currently, Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Adrian Killins (ankle) are on injured reserve, and KJ Hamler is expected to join them soon after tearing his ACL on Sunday. Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick will continue to gobble up most of the targets from Teddy Bridgewater, but Moore finds himself in a place to produce as a third wide receiver.

Lands with Raiders' practice squad

Moore signed with the Raiders' practice squad Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Although Moore signed a two-year deal with the Panthers during the offseason, he failed to land a spot on the team's 53-man roster and was released Wednesday. The 26-year-old appeared in 47 games across the last four seasons with the Seahawks and will provide a veteran presence on the Raiders' practice squad.

Sep 3, 2021 9:19 PM EST

Leaving Carolina

The Panthers released Moore on Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: A 2017 seventh-round pick, Moore spent his first four seasons with the Seahawks, after which the Panthers inked him to a deal back in March. But with Terrace Marshall's subsequent addition in the draft and impressive play throughout the preseason, Carolina is moving on from the 26-year-old. With Moore out of the picture, the team's group of wide receivers now includes Robby Anderson, DJ Moore, Marshall, Brandon Zylstra and Shi Smith (shoulder).

Sep 1, 2021 10:54 AM EST

Makes one catch

Moore caught one of two targets for 19 yards in Friday night's 34-9 preseason win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Moore also returned three kicks for a combined 37 yards on special teams. Given the fantastic preseason production of rookie second-rounder Terrace Marshall, who scored while catching three passes for 43 yards Friday, Moore is now expected to serve as Carolina's fourth wideout this season, likely restricting his value despite coming off a career-best 35 receptions in Seattle last year.
