Signs new contract with Chargers

The Chargers signed Moore to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Analysis: The wide receiver appeared in two games with the team in 2021, reeling in three catches for 56 yards. Moore will now have another opportunity to showcase his talents with the Chargers in 2022.

Tallies 56 yards

Moore recorded three receptions on four targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 41-29 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Moore was forced to step into a large role in the Chargers' offense with Mike Williams (undisclosed) and Jalen Guyton (illness) sidelined. He still finished only fifth on the team in targets while serving as the deep threat. His longest reception of the day went for 24 yards, though he also tallied a pair of catches that went for 16 yards. Assuming even one of Guyton or Williams is activated ahead of the team's Week 17 matchup against Denver, Moore will slide back down the depth chart.

Set for significant playing time

Moore was elevated to the Chargers' active roster Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: With both Jalen Guyton and Mike Williams on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Moore could significant playing time as the No. 3 wideout behind Keenan Allen and Josh Palmer. The long-time practice squad wideout has been an inconsistent option during various preseasons, but he's never been a major contributor at any point throughout his three-year tenure. Expect to see the 26-year-old lined up wide with Allen and Palmer splitting the slot work.

Back to practice squad

Moore has reverted back to the Chargers' practice squad, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Moore was promoted to the team's active roster prior to Sunday's game versus the Giants to provide depth at receiver. He ended up seeing eight offensive snaps, as well as eight on special teams. However, he did not record any statistics.

Elevated from practice squad

Moore has been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's contest against the Giants.

Analysis: After Keenan Allen tested positive for covid-19, Los Angeles elevated Moore from the practice squad for some wide receiver depth. The young receiver has yet to catch an NFL pass yet. Moore is expected to be the fourth string wide receiver behind Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton, and Josh Palmer.

Let go Tuesday

Moore (undisclosed) was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Analysis: Moore was always on the outside looking in when it came to the final 53-man roster, but a brief stint of missed practice time likely didn't help the cause. The Chargers didn't choose to put Moore on injured reserve or waive him with an injury designation so it's fair to assume whatever kept him from practicing likely wasn't serious. The third-year receiver has frequently ping-ponged between the team's practice squad and active roster but has played just 112 offensive snaps to date.

Misses practice

Moore was absent from Wednesday's practice for an undisclosed reason, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It is unclear what issue Moore is dealing with. He is currently buried on the Chargers' depth chart, so a return sooner than later will be advantageous for his chances at earning a depth receiver role.

Staying in L.A.

The Chargers signed Moore to a reserve/future Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The wideout made Week 4 and Week 8 appearances for Los Angeles, totaling 35 offensive snaps without receiving a touch. Moore's involvement during his 2019 Chargers campaign consisted of two receptions for 43 yards over five targets, while he suited up for eight more regular-season contests.

Active roster stint short lasting

Moore reverted to the Chargers' practice squad after fielding 10 offensive snaps and 12 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Moore has bounced between the active roster, the practice squad and the waiver wire over the first half of 2020, ultimately seeing game action in Weeks 4 and 8 for the Chargers. The 25-year-old receiver has yet to contribute a catch in his second active NFL season, though he has been on the field for a combined 35 snaps over his pair of appearances.

Rises from practice squad

The Chargers elevated Moore to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: The Chargers waived Moore last Saturday, but he cleared waivers and signed with the team's practice squad. He'll get another opportunity immediately, adding further depth to an already deep crew of wide receivers.

Signs with Bolts' practice squad

Moore signed with the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's media transactions page.

Analysis: Moore started the season on the Chargers' 53-man roster and played 25 snaps with the team before being waived earlier this season. Now, the 25-year-old wide receiver will have an opportunity to try to work his way back up to the main roster.

Oct 28, 2020 1:02 PM EST

Let go by Chargers

The Chargers waived Moore on Saturday.

Analysis: Moore suited up in one game for the Chargers after winning a roster spot in training camp, and he wasn't targeted over 25 offensive snaps. Jalen Guyton, KJ Hill (hip) Tyron Johnson and Joe Reed showed more potential through the short stint and will stick with the team as depth moving forward. The 25-year-old wide receiver is a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers.

Oct 24, 2020 6:20 PM EST

No-go for Week 2

Moore (coach's decision) will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs, per the Chargers' official Twitter account.

Analysis: The 25-year-old receiver has now been scratched from the lineup in both Weeks 1 and 2, after making 10 appearances last year as an undrafted rookie. As Moore sits out another game, Jalen Guyton, K.J. Hill, and Joe Reed will see snaps behind Los Angeles' top wideouts Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.

Locks up spot on roster

Moore is present on the team's 53-man roster following Saturday's cutdown.

Analysis: This move comes as a bit of a surprise considering the Chargers typically don't roster more than five wide receivers in any given year. Moore beat out veteran Darius Jennings and previous practice-squad standout Tyron Johnson for the sixth and final spot among the wide receivers, although a rash of injuries would need to occur before Moore becomes fantasy relevant.

Finishes season with two catches

Moore posted two catches for 43 yards across 10 games played in 2019.

Analysis: Moore actually registered at least five offensive snaps in nine of the aforementioned 10 games although he caught a pass in just one of them. Travis Benjamin (quad) is expected to be a cap-savings causality this offseason, opening up the possibility for Moore to fight with a litany of other lesser-known options for the No. 3 receiver.

Jan 4, 2020 8:56 AM EST

Catches two passes in five snaps

Moore caught both of his targets for 43 yards in the 24-17 loss Sunday to the Chargers.

Analysis: Moore made his first NFL catch late in the fourth quarter and promptly registered another 10-plus-yard reception later in the contest. Injuries and general ineffectiveness by the receiving core helped the undrafted rookie see a limited number of snaps, but it's unlikely Moore will see similar production moving forward.

Oct 14, 2019 12:15 PM EST

Signed by Chargers

Moore was signed to the Chargers' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Moore doesn't figure to play a big enough role for the Chargers to warrant fantasy consideration, but it's still good to see the young receiver get a chance to show what he can do as part of Los Angeles' active roster. He has yet to play a game in 2019.
