When the Chicago Bears acquired receiver D.J. Moore from the Carolina Panthers in a blockbuster trade that involved the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, Justin Fields was taking a nap.
He woke up to many text messages and missed calls, and of course, the news that general manager Ryan Poles had went out and landed him a legitimate, game-changing new No. 1 receiver.
“I woke up from my nap and saw that it happened, people were blowing up my phone like I just got traded,” Fields told reporters on Tuesday. “Everybody was excited. D.J. brings great talent to this team and just his personality fits in well with everybody really from the first day he got here.”
