During the offseason, the Chicago Bears acquired star wide receiver DJ Moore as part of a blockbuster trade that sent the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to the Carolina Panthers. And it sounds like he’s already making an impact for the Bears well before the start of the season.

During a recent appearance on the Under Center Podcast, Chicago Bears rookie receiver Tyler Scott, DJ Moore has already impressed him this offseason, revealing that Moore looks the part of a veteran star receiver.

“DJ Moore, being a teammate, he is everything advertised and more,” Scott said during his appearance on the podcast according to “He plays with such a calmness to him, just a control to him — and football players know what that looks like. And he just plays under control. And it’s not necessarily like he’s playing slow or behind, he just plays like he knows what he’s doing. You can tell he’s experienced in what he does.”

We’ll have to see how Moore fares in the Chicago Bears offense this season and whether or not his presence provides a significant boost to the team’s passing attack which is currently led by quarterback Justin Fields.
