David Moore is staying in Seattle.
The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, who was set to make $2.13 million under the terms of the restricted free agent tender he signed in April, has agreed to rework his deal to remain in Seattle, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Saturday.
Moore had been battling for the No. 3 gig behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf this offseason. The 25-year-old finished 2019 with 17 receptions and 301 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the Seahawks.
Overall, Moore’s caught 43 passes for 746 yards and seven touchdowns in 30 regular season games since joining the Seahawks in 2017.
Moore was believed to be a potential candidate to miss the final cut for the Seahawks regular season roster.
Seattle currently has a loaded wide receiver room with Metcalf and Lockett leading the way, as well as Dorsett, John Ursua, sixth-round pick Freddie Swain, Josh Gordon, if he’s reinstated from suspension, and re-signed 2014 second-round pick Paul Richardson. Richardson is now a long shot to land on the 53.
Prior to Moore’s renegotiated contract, the Seahawks had approximately $14.8 million against the salary cap this season, per OverTheCap.
