D.J. Moore not returning to Bears

March, 4, 2013
CHICAGO -- Unrestricted free agent defensive back D.J. Moore confirmed to ESPNChicago.com on Monday night that he is no longer in the Chicago Bears' plans moving forward.

Selected by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL draft, Moore became the team’s starting nickel back in his second year and went on to intercept 10 passes over the last three seasons.

Moore began to fall out of favor with the Bears last season after he lost his starting job to Kelvin Hayden midway through the year.

Moore will look to sign with a new team when NFL free agency officially begins on March 12 at 3 p.m. CT.
