Moore signed his original-round contract tender with the Seahawks on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Moore recorded 17 catches for 301 yards and two scores while playing a depth role in Seattle's receiving corps in 2019, and he's now locked in with the team for 2020. The 25-year-old looks primed to compete for the No. 3 wideout gig this offseason, though the Seahawks could still opt to bring in additional competition in the form of rookies or free agents.
The Seahawks have tendered Moore at the original-round level, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Moore was a seventh-round pick in 2017, so any team that signs him to an offer sheet will need to send a seventh-round selection to Seattle if the Seahawks don't match. He made some noise in 2018 with 445 yards and five touchdowns, but he started just one game in 2019 en route to a 17-301-2 receiving line. He could be in the mix for the team's No. 3 WR job this offseason, depending on other moves in the weeks to come.
Moore, who didn't receive a target in Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round loss to the Packers, finished the season with 19 catches for 358 yards and two touchdowns over 15 games. Moore is a boom-or-bust receiver, as he hauled in five passes of 20-plus yards, but he was vastly overshadowed by rookie DK Metcalf in the deep-threat department. He struggled to secure the No. 3 spot behind Metcalf and Tyler Lockett as well, as Moore rotated with Malik Turner and Jaron Brown. Moore will be a restricted free agent in March.
Moore caught two of four targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 17-9 wild-card win over the Eagles. Moore hauled in passes of 38 and 19 yards and was targeted on another deep pass in the third quarter that Russell Wilson misfired on. The 24-year-old is known for his big-play potential, so his daily fantasy upside is respectable, although best fit for tournaments. It'll be tough in the divisional round against the Packers, though, as they've allowed just 232.6 passing yards per game this season.
Moore caught both his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers. The third-year pro moved into the No. 3 wideout role with Malik Turner (concussion) inactive, but the results weren't anything to write home about. For the fourth straight game, Moore failed to surpass 30 receiving yards or find paydirt, though he had a touchdown called back for offensive holding in the second half. If Turner returns for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles, Moore's usage will likely be limited again.
