Elijah Moore, WR (CLE)

Traded to Cleveland

The Jets traded Moore and a 2023 third-round pick to the Browns on Wednesday in exchange for a 2023 second-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With the Jets having already signed Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman (groin) in free agency this offseason to complement incumbent starting wideouts Garrett Wilson and Corey Davis, the team's decision to part ways with Moore doesn't come as an overly surprising one. Moore, a 2021 second-round pick, posted 43 receptions for 538 yards and five scores on 77 targets across 11 appearances as a rookie, but he had a disappointing sophomore campaign, securing just 37 of 65 targets for 446 yards and one score over 16 games. The soon-to-be 23-year-old will get a fresh start in Cleveland and will presumably compete with Donovan Peoples-Jones and David Bell for a sizable role behind No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper.
