Bucs released CB D.J. Moore.
It's a surprise in that Moore entered camp as the presumptive starter in the slot, but not a surprise in that Moore spent the majority of 2013 on the street. Danny Gorrer and third-year pro Leonard Johnson will now duke it out at nickel back. Moore is only 27, but it's a poor sign for his NFL future that he's been cut loose by coach Lovie Smith, whom he played for in Chicago from 2010-12. Tue, Jul 22, 2014 06:05:00 PM

D.J. Moore will open training camp as the Bucs' slot corner.

Moore spent the majority of last year out of football, but his experience in Lovie Smith's Tampa-2 has him as the favorite for snaps in nickel packages. His main competition will be Danny Gorrer and third-year CB Leonard Johnson. Moore had 10 interceptions in three seasons under Smith from 2010-2012.

Bucs DC Leslie Frazier said CB D.J. Moore is "running ahead of the pack" as the early favorite for slot corner duties.

Moore knows the defense like the back of his hand after playing for coach Lovie Smith in Chicago from 2010-2012 when he notched ten interceptions as the Bears' nickel corner. Moore's main competition is Leonard Johnson and Mike Jenkins. Alterraun Verner and Johnthan Banks are expected to man the outside.

Buccaneers signed CB D.J. Moore, formerly of the Panthers.

Moore, 27 in March, spent most of last year out of football after being cut by the Panthers in October. New Bucs coach Lovie Smith knows Moore from Chicago, where he notched ten interceptions across the 2010-2012 seasons, often covering the slot. Moore could push Bucs slot CB Leonard Johnson for snaps.

Panthers released CB D.J. Moore.

Signed to a one-year, $715,000 contract in March, Moore simply couldn't get over his knee issues. He hadn't played since Week 2. A veteran nickel back, Moore will likely get another chance once he's back to full health.
Mon, Oct 21, 2013 04:53:00 PM

Panthers CB D.J. Moore (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Moore suffered a sprained knee ligament in Sunday's loss to the Bills. The Panthers are hoping he can return following their Week 4 bye.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 02:51:00 PM

Panthers CB D.J. Moore was diagnosed with a sprained knee ligament in Week 2 against the Bills.

Moore suffered the knee injury early in the second half, but managed to stay in the game. It's another blow to a Panthers secondary that lost Charles Godfrey (Achilles) and Josh Thomas (concussion) on Sunday. Josh Norman also briefly exited with a thigh injury and could miss practice time this week.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 08:56:00 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with CB D.J. Moore, formerly of the Bears, on a one-year contract.

The ball-hawking four-year veteran was the Bears' nickel back for most of the past three seasons, but was demoted late in 2012. He should serve in the same capacity in Carolina. Moore's signing likely means Captain Munnerlyn will be allowed to walk in free agency. In the slot since 2010, Moore has notched 118 tackles and 10 interceptions over his past 42 games.
Tue, Mar 19, 2013 04:04:00 PM

The Panthers will host CB D.J. Moore for a free-agent visit this week.

Moore could be a replacement for Captain Munnerlyn at nickel back. A feisty slot corner with playmaking ability, Moore turns 26 years old in four days.
Mon, Mar 18, 2013 02:10:00 PM

The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to show interest in free agent CB D.J. Moore.

Moore was demoted to the Bears' fourth corner in 2012 and was told earlier this week that he won't be re-signed. The Panthers have one of the worst cap situations in the NFL, so they'll be targeting second-tier free agents like Moore.
Sat, Mar 9, 2013 07:43:00 PM

The Bears have informed free agent CB D.J. Moore that he is not in the team's future plans.

Moore will not be re-signed. He was demoted to the fourth corner in 2012 and was even a healthy inactive for a couple of contests. Moore does have playmaking ability, with ten interceptions over the last three seasons.
Mon, Mar 4, 2013 08:33:00 PM

The Chicago Tribune does not expect free agent CB D.J. Moore to re-sign with the Bears.

Moore was benched last season, falling behind nickel corner Kelvin Hayden. With defensive backs coach Jon Hoke still in town, it's unlikely the new regime will change its tune. Moore is our No. 38 corner available in free agency.
Wed, Feb 27, 2013 09:19:00 AM

Bears declared CB D.J. Moore, QB Nathan Enderle, TE Andre Smith, G Ricky Henry, DT Matt Toeaina, DE Chauncey Davis, and LB Jabara Williams inactive for Week 11 against the Chargers.

Nickelback Moore suffered a serious ankle sprain in practice this week. Corey Graham is expected to fill in against the Bolts. Anthony Adams is starting at nose tackle with Toeaina out.
Sun, Nov 20, 2011 03:02:00 PM

Bears nickelback D.J. Moore will reportedly sit out Sunday's game against the Chargers while nursing a sprained ankle.

Corey Graham and Zack Bowman are options to see increased snaps this week. The Bears typically play nickel about 50 percent of the time, but expect to use the package more against Philip Rivers.
Thu, Nov 17, 2011 09:39:00 PM

Bears signed fourth-round CB D.J. Moore to a four-year contract.

Moore is expected to battle Nate Vasher for the starting right corner job. Though on the small side with subpar speed, Moore showed tremendous ball skills at Vanderbilt and is a good fit for the Bears' zone scheme.
