The Bears wide receiving trio has the potential to be one of the scariest in the NFL in 2024. D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen are All-Pro-level receivers, and rookie Rome Odunze lit up college football last season. The effects of these moves have already been felt throughout the NFC North.

This offseason the Packers added former Giants safety Xavier McKinney and the Lions drafted two cornerbacks. While these moves may not be a direct response to the weapons the Bears added, in theory the additions should help each team slow down the Bears.

That doesn't seem to have D.J. Moore too worried though.

Bears News: D.J. Moore Roasts Packers, Lions Secondaries

On Tuesday morning, Moore was a guest on the Up and Adams show hosted by Kay Adams.
While chatting with Moore, Adams asked about his thoughts on the additions other NFC North teams made to their secondaries this offseason.

Moore brushed the question off by saying "Who" and then "That's nice" when Adams mentioned that the Packers added Xavier Mckinney.

Moore's lack of concern about facing the Packers and Lions' beefed-up secondaries is sort of understandable after the additions the Bears made to their wide receiver corps this offseason. Adding Rome Odunze and Kennan Allen means less attention will be directed toward Moore, who was the Bears' number-one receiver in 2023. 

In the Bears' two meetings with the Lions last season, Moore combined for 164 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Moore was able to put up those numbers even though the Lions' main goal was to stop him. So, Moore not flinching at the Lions adding two rookie cornerbacks while the Bears added more firepower makes sense. 

However, it is a different story with the Packers. In the team's two meetings last year, Moore only had 89 receiving yards. Both times the Packers and Bears played last season, Moore was relatively quiet. A big reason for that is because Moore was matched up with star cornerback Jaire Alexander. 

Now that Moore isn't the only threat in the Bears receiving room, they may not always be focusing on Moore in their matchups. Nevertheless, the threat of Mckinney and his range at safety should elicit some concern for Moore and other Bears receivers getting big plays on the Packers.
