D.J. Moore enhances the Bears offence and Justin Fields

The Bears acquired D.J. Moore from the Panthers as part of the historic deal by trading down from the No. 1 pick.

a brief biography for you: Moore, 25, has spent his entire five-year NFL career with Carolina. In the 2018 draught, he was selected with the 24th overall pick. Moore has three seasons with more than 1,000 receiving yards and a total of 21 career touchdowns.

Even better, he complements Fields' arm strength. He has a solid frame and is a deep ball receiver (6 feet, 210 pounds). According to Brad Spielberger of PFF, Moore had 172 targets between 10 and 19 yards downfield from 2019 to 22—the second-most in the League in that range.

Fields' talent for tossing the ball downfield is widely known to the Bears and Poles. They traded for Chase Claypool, who is similar to Moore and has a huge body suitable for catching the long 50/50 ball, in part because of this.

Also, Fields expressed a desire to develop his short game. He wants to become more proficient at making shorter passes. His career completion rate of 59.7 percent is not very high.

When asked to identify a skill he needs to work on, Fields responded to Rich Eisen, "I would say in the short game, in the short passing game. "Kind ly like the gimme throws, run alerts, bubbles, and other such things. I believe that I may have become too complacent and simply missed many simple throws."

Apart from Fields' improvements, the Bears now have a legit No. 1 receiver with the ability to run several routes and catch long passes.

Not to mention, Moore hasn't exactly had the best quarterbacks over his five NFL seasons. Sam Darnold, P.J. Walker, Teddy Bridgewater, Will Grier, Baker Mayfield, etc. Must I continue?

With Fields, Moore now has a quarterback who can deliver the ball to him. With just over 2,200 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, and the majority of his offensive work coming on the ground, he may not have fully demonstrated this past season.

He has, nevertheless, had brief spurts of success. His arm strength is without a doubt among the best, and his footage from last season shows a tonne of effective long balls. Moore is the piece of the jigsaw that will hopefully enable the third-year quarterback to succeed through the air.

Furthermore, Cole Kmet, Darnell Mooney, Claypool, and Moore are respectable players to watch out for in the passing game. Fields' strengths are being successfully built upon by the Bears from a schematic perspective.
