Bears News: Justin Jones impressed by tandem of Justin Fields, DJ Moore


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears are hoping for a new and improved offense spearheaded by franchise quarterback Justin Fields and veteran newcomer DJ Moore making plays all over the field.

During offseason practices, defensive tackle Justin Jones has been very impressed by the duo of Fields and Moore thinking they will be explosive this season.

"That one (Fields) and two (Moore) connection is going to be crazy this year," said Jonese. "I'm going to tell you that right now. I like what I see. DJ Moore is a great addition. He's made some amazing catches this OTAs. It's something we haven't had here in a long time. I'm excited."

"He is somebody who can get open, who can run every route on the route tree," Jones said. "He can beat man, press, any type of coverage you throw at him, double teams. He's running right by guys, hitting them with double moves."

Moore had 364 passes for 5,201 yards and 21 touchdowns in five seasons with the Panthers.

This is great news for Bears fans as Fields has needed someone that can get open underneath to make his life a little easier in the pocket.
