Panthers WR DJ Moore looking to make jump in Year 2
Carolina Panthers wide receiver DJ Moore got off to a bit of a slow start to his rookie campaign but finished the season strong and he sees an even bigger year in year two. Last season he caught 55 passes for 788 yards and two touchdowns, including a long catch of 82 yards. He also had 13 carries for 72 yards and is expected to take some carries again out of the backfield.
This week Moore hosted a football camp and said that his goals are to make the jump that his teammate Christian McCaffrey made from year one to year two.
“We [saw] the jump that Christian had from Year One to Year Two,” Moore said, via Joseph Person of TheAthletic.com. “I’m looking to take the same jump.”
Moore is represented by Drew Rosenhaus and that is another person who expects him to take another big step forward this year.
“I think he’s an ascending star,” said Drew Rosenhaus, Moore’s agent. “When you look at young players that are on the verge of developing into a Pro Bowl-type talent, that’s where I think DJ is. I think the sky’s the limit for him and I would expect him to have a great year next year.”
If Moore can get out to a fast start to the season that is going to spell good things for the Panthers offense, and the team as a whole.
A full off-season in the Panthers weight and training system has done good things for others, and the expectation is the same for Moore.
