In a recent move, the New York Jets traded Elijah Moore to the Cleveland Browns.
With New York acquiring a plethora of new wide receivers, it made sense to deal Moore away.
During his introductory press conference with the Browns, Elijah Moore seemed over the moon to be in Cleveland. However, he made sure to send a parting shot at Zach Wilson.
Maybe he’s just excited to be on a new team. But the media felt his wording was a subtle jab at his former quarterback. LaQuan Jones shares what Elijah Moore had to say about playing with Deshaun Watson.
Elijah Moore called Deshaun Watson "legit" QB, says believes in him, talked yesterday.
Shots fired at Zach Wilson 😅😅

Last season was packed with plenty of drama for the young wide receiver. Rumors are that he had a beef with both Zach Wilson and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.
But now that Mooe is with the Browns, he just seems excited to work alongside Watson and Amari Cooper, per Anthony Poisal.
New #Browns WR Elijah Moore is looking forward to joining other playmakers on the offense.
"I feel like being here with Deshaun and Coop is a really good mesh."
He said he talked to Watson yesterday.

With that said, the Browns are certainly looking to switch things up offensively. Moore has plenty to prove. But the fact he’ll be playing behind a veteran star in Amari Cooper is great for his outlook.
