DJ Moore makes bold claim about Chicago Bears wide receiver group

The Chicago Bears continue to be at the center of the national attention within the NFL, with the latest example being Kay Adams hosting her morning talk show, Up and Adams, from Halas Hall on Tuesday morning.

With Chicago being billed previously as the place where wide receivers go to die, that no longer holds true.

DJ Moore was proof of that last season. In his first season with the Bears, Moore totaled 1,364 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns. Moore was a guest on Adams' show and spoke about the new additions that the Bears have made to their wide receiver group.

In the blink of an eye, the Bears have gone from having one of the worst wide receiver position groups in the NFL to one of the best. Moore is in place as the team's primary wide receiver, but he will be backed by another Pro Bow-caliber wide receiver in Keenan Allen, and a rookie wide receiver in Rome Odunze, who has drawn comparisons to Larry Fitzgerald.

The idea of the Bears potentially having three wide receivers eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in a season would have been a foreign thought for many Bears fans prior to the 2024 NFL Draft. The addition of Odunze, of course, has changed how this Bears' offense is viewed, in addition to the arrival of Caleb Williams at the quarterback position.

It will be interesting to see how Shane Waldon deploys the three wide receivers that the Bears have at the top of their depth chart. Waldon is no stranger to three wide receiver sets given his time as the Seattle Seahawks' offensive coordinator. It would seem that the likely setup for the Bears will be having Moore and Odunze playing on the outside with Allen serving as the slot receiver.
