D.J. Moore is a wide receiver in the National Football League who plays for the Carolina Panthers.
Despite changes at the quarterback position for his team, Moore has remained one of the more consistent players at his position during his time in the NFL. He is off to a good start in becoming one of the top players at his position during his era.
D.J. Moore played his high school football at Imhotep Institute Charter High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
While there, he earned state honors as a football player and was also a member of the National Honor Society. By the time his high school football career was complete, he was a four-star recruit and chose to play his college football at Maryland.
At the University of Maryland, Moore played three years and got better with each passing season at the Big-Ten institution. Moore’s junior season saw him catch 80 balls for 1,033 yards and eight touchdowns.
He was named Big Ten receiver of the year for that season and earned first-team all-Big Ten honors.
D.J. Moore’s professional career began when he was taken in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. Moore has been an explosive component of the Panthers’ offense for years now, averaging over 13 yards per catch in each of his first three seasons in the NFL. In a competitive NFC South, against teams like the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a player like Moore has been necessary to allow the Panthers to keep up with offenses that feature weapons like Mike Evans and Michael Thomas.
DJ Moore signed a four year, $11.1 million rookie contract with the Carolina Panthers in 2018. The contract featured over $6 million in signing bonus funds, with Moore definitely living up to his first contract in the league.
He does not have any notable endorsements yet, but that is likely to change after he inks a more lucrative second contract in the league.
The family life of DJ Moore starts with his parents Eddie and Doris Moore, who gave birth to DJ in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Moore has two brothers, Eddie and Robert, along with one sister named Janell. Moore is not in a publicly known relationship at this time, and he does have a daughter.
