I think it’s safe to say that Elijah Moore is happy to be away from Zach Wilson.
On Thursday, Moore was officially introduced as the newest member of the Browns after he was traded there.
Speaking to reporters, Moore made it clear that he respected Deshaun Watson for what he does on the field, but with his praise seemed to come shade toward Zach Wilson.
“He’s a legit quarterback,” Moore said. “It’s someone that has been doing some amazing things around the league. He has respect from everybody around the league. They talk really highly about him here and they believe in him, and man, with him being my quarterback, I believe in him too. So, I’m just grateful to be one of his guys.”

Moore spent two seasons with the Jets catching passes from Joe Flacco, Mike White, and Zach Wilson. Now that the team is on the cusp of getting a legit QB in Aaron Rodgers, they shipped him out. However, he doesn’t seem to be upset about it.
Watson wasn’t all that great last season as he completed just 58.2 percent of his pass attempts for 1,102 yards with seven touchdowns and five interceptions. However, this was his first taste of game action in two years after he was accused by more than 20 women of sexual assault and misconduct.
Last season, Moore caught 37 passes for 446 yards and one touchdown in 16 games, but his production could be a direct result of the constantly changing QB carousel from the 2022 season.
If Watson can return to form, then the sky is the limit for Moore and the Browns’ offense.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
