D.J. Moore's Bears Jersey Number Potentially Revealed
Oftentimes when a player switches teams, a new jersey number is part of the change as well. The same digits may not be available on his new team, either because it's been retired or someone else is wearing it.
Fortunately for D.J. Moore, his old number just opened up on the Chicago Bears.
D.J. Moore Jersey Number
Moore, who has worn the No. 2 in each of the past two seasons, was initially expected to change his number after being traded from the Carolina Panthers to the Bears last week. That's because Chicago already had a No. 2 in kicker Cairo Santos.
In a surprising twist, Santos is changing his number to 8 to accommodate Moore, which is a clear sign of respect for the star wideout. Moore will thus get to remain No. 2.
Moore will have a lot of new things to get used to in the coming days and weeks, including a new city, new teammates, new coaches and a new offense. But thanks to Santos, a new jersey number won't be one of them.
