Despite having a history with new Panthers GM Scott Fitterer and having pocketed more than $1MM fully guaranteed, David Moore did not make Carolina’s 53-man roster. Two days after his release, the former Seahawks wideout landed another gig.
The Raiders are signing Moore to their practice squad, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com tweets. Moore, 26, will be the most experienced pass catcher on Las Vegas’ taxi unit, but after the NFL expanded P-squads to 16 players last year, numerous veterans have landed such deals to continue their careers.
Moore served as a complementary option in Seattle but twice exceeded 400 receiving yards in a season, doing so in 2018 and ’20. He totaled 11 touchdown receptions between those campaigns, adding two more in 2019. Moore signed a two-year, $4.75MM deal with the Panthers in March.
The Raiders already have veterans Willie Snead and Zay Jones on their active roster. Moore provides additional insurance for a team set to rely on homegrown young wideouts. Las Vegas also released John Brown earlier this week.
