Do The Eagles Have A Chance At DJ Moore?
According to a report from Chad Forbes, it would be a surprise to see starting receiver DJ Moore play another snap for the Carolina Panthers, and its “only a matter of when” until he’s traded to the Eagles.
If DJ Moore plays 1 snap for the 2020 #Panthers I’ll be surprised. Don’t let the Bridgewater signing fool you. There’s a plan in place. Building Asset Base right now. Moore to #Eagles & its only a matter of when?

Now, this would be an incredible move from Howie Roseman. The 22-year-old from Philadelphia caught 87 passes for 1,175 yards and had four touchdowns in his second season for the Panthers. Averaging 13.5 yards per reception, Moore has what the Eagles lack at the wide receiver position, playmaking ability. At 5′ 11″, 215 lbs, Moore has the stereotypical shifty wide receiver build. However, Moore has shown the ability to go up and grab 50/50 balls. You can use him in so many ways which makes him so unique, he can almost do it all. This is only his second year and he has already put the league on notice.
The Eagles have yet to address the offense and the big need at the wide receiver. Breshad Perriman is still available, as we just saw Robby Anderson sign with the Jets. There are a couple of ways to upgrade the wide receiver position, but the Eagles have to act fast before it’s too late. If the Eagles were to make a trade for Moore and draft one or two receivers in the draft, that core will be vastly improved. DJ Moore is a very interesting option and the Eagles should have an interest. I have no idea what the value on him would be, but they do have a need at cornerback and the Eagles are shopping Rasul Douglas.
