Where DJ Moore would rank among Bears’ all-time leading receivers

The Chicago Bears acquired wide receiver DJ Moore in a blockbuster trade with the Carolina Panthers for the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

Bears general manager Ryan Poles reportedly “adamant” that Moore be included in the deal for the first overall pick, and the Panthers ultimately gave in. Now, quarterback Justin Fields has his No. 1 wide receiver in Moore, who should help elevate the passing game immediately.

But before Moore starts his career in Chicago, here’s a look at where he would rank among the top 15 leading receivers in Bears history:
