The Bears got a primary target for Justin Fields when they acquired receiver DJ Moore from the Panthers as part of the deal for the No. 1 overall pick.

But as much as Moore may aid in Fields’ development, the receiver said during his introductory press conference on Thursday that he’ll be an asset for the entire offensive unit.

“I think everybody’s level can reach a new level here now that I’m here,” Moore said, via Josh Schrock of “The whole presence of ー I was talking to [Darnell] Mooney and was talking about being together with Chase [Claypool] and me and him, how we’re just going to elevate the offense and just elevate Justin at the same time.

“Because I’m not just here to be like, ‘I’m here,’ just like a bright light. I’m here to make everyone around me better and we just want to try to get some wins.”

Moore had three consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving from 2019-2021. But with inconsistent quarterback play in 2022, Moore caught 63 passes for 888 yards with seven touchdowns for Carolina.

  1. There is literally ZERO chance Moore gets to 1,000 yards this season with Fields throwing the ball.

  2. You could add HOF receivers to this roster and it wouldn’t change the fact that Fields is just a running back. He is a pretender at QB.

  3. Now I see why Carolina got rid of this guy. He’s delusional. The new level the Bears are going to reach is a new low level. They’ll have the number one pick again next year.

  4. Let’s be real.
    He’s good but he’s not amazing.
    If he was Justin Jefferson then yes I could see it.

  5. This guy is full of himself and bought into the hype in Chicago immediately. Hint: The Bears blow and lack talent everywhere.


  6. You guys are all crazy. DJ Moore will be the next Brandon Marshall- Fields will be a MVP candidate in 2023.

  7. Laugh if you want but that’s an alpha-dog mentality that the Bears have lacked for a long time. If he plays up to his talk, it could make a difference.
