DJ Moore thinks 'sky's the limit' for him with Fields


It's a new chapter for DJ Moore, as well as Justin Fields.

The new Chicago Bears wide receiver-quarterback duo both are expecting jumps in their respective play.

For Fields, he has a No. 1 wide receiver in Moore for the first time in his career.

For Moore, he has quarterback stability. The Carolina Panthers had a rotation of quarterbacks during Moore's tenure, including Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Taylor Heinicke, Kyle Allen, Will Grier, Teddy Bridgewater, and P.J. Walker.

"I wouldn't call that a mess," Moore said, responding to a reporter's characterization. "But I come to a better situation with a stable quarterback. The sky's the limit from there."

He also was quick to point that while he expects his play to reach a new level, he sees everyone on the Bears' offense reaching a new level. Not just Fields, everyone, including wide receivers Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool.

It's still impressive that Moore has had the success he has without a franchise quarterback throwing the ball to him. Moore has three 1,100 yard receiving seasons.

His 5,201 career receiving yards in just give seasons would make him the Bears' all-time leading receiver. Johnny Morris, who played from 1958 to 1967, holds the record for the Bears with 5,059 yards receiving.

Showing a bit of his character, Moore never once criticized Carolina's quarterbacks. 

"I want to say I never really looked at it as instability," Moore said. "I always make connections with all the quarterbacks on the team, no matter who it is.


"I really don't care who goes in game or anything. I've just got to go out there and do my job."
