Back in April, the Bears brought in wide receiver David Moore as part of minicamp tryouts as the team was looking to fill out its 90-player offseason roster. And when inking Moore to a deal, the idea was he would join the mix in a renovated receivers room. But I wonder what his future holds after he became the latest Bears player to be arrested this offseason.
Per KXII News 12, Adams was arrested in his home town. The news website has details:
Per the report, Moore was arrested on July 4 on drug and weapon charges. Moore signed with the Bears in April. And the the expectation was for him to compete for a depth spot at a position group that needs warm bodies and production. Prior to joining Chicago, Moore had pro experience with the Seahawks, Broncos, and Packers.
I’ll be curious to see if Moore, Head Coach Matt Eberflus, GM Ryan Poles, or the Bears organization comments on the incident. Moore’s arrest is the third such off-the-field legal incident involving a new Bears player. Earlier, receiver Byron Pringle was arrested for a reckless driving incident. And linebacker Matthew Adams was arrested for gun possession. That the incidents with Adams and Moore came after Eberflus’ message to be mindful of what you do in the time off between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp gnaws at me. And I can’t imagine I’m alone.
