Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sign Former Chicago Bears Wide Receiver

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added some depth to their receiver corps. Following their rookie minicamp, the Bucs announced the signing of wide receiver David Moore, formerly of the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks.

Moore entered the league as the Seahawks' 226th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. After a quiet rookie season, Moore emerged as a valuable WR3 in his second year, totalling 1163 receiving yards at an effective 14.9 yards per reception from 2018 to 2020.

Moore has faded into obscurity somewhat after leaving the Seahawks: he has failed to record a regular-season catch over the past two years in stints with the Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, and Chicago Bears. He was last seen returning punts for the Packers in 2021.

Moore has had an uneventful past couple of years in the NFL, and his inability to see the field of late indicates he probably won't be guaranteed a roster spot beyond training camp. He'll compete for WR4 snaps behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Russell Gage.
