Chris Moore may get a chance to shine in 2019 for the Baltimore Ravens
Chris Moore has shown some potential as a wide receiver. 2019 could be a chance for him to shine more on the offense:
When you think Chris Moore, you think special teams ace. He’s known for running down punt returners, scoring touchdowns on blocked punts and catching passes from Sam Koch on fake punts. In 2019, Ravens could ask Moore to be a bigger part of the offense.
Moore has shown flashes at the receiver position. Moore has never cracked into the main lineup for the Ravens offense. He has 44 career receptions and four touchdown receptions. Moore has the ability to make tough catches up in the air, he just hasn’t been asked to do it too much. He’s been on the roster since the Ravens drafted him in 2016, and it’s his work on special teams that has kept him employed.

The Ravens have never really had a surplus of talent at the wide receiver position, but it’s especially bleak at the moment. Outside of Willie Snead, the Ravens receivers set for 2019 have no regular season receptions.
We’ve had the first wave of free agency, and the NFL Draft is about a month a way, yet Moore is the current number two receiver of the Ravens. One way or another Moore is going to be part of the mix.
There is 0.0 chance that the Ravens could go into the next season without adding receivers to the mix. There aren’t a lot of great options remaining in free agency. There is a good chance that any receivers the Ravens add will be a rookie. Moore has potential as a receiver and the Ravens may have to see it come to fruition.
Moore is a very fast 6’1″ receiver. He has the athleticism to be a good wide receiver. It’s not like Moore hasn’t gotten the job done when his name has been called upon. it’s just that he hasn’t been called upon that much. The Ravens just signed Justin Bethel, who is primarily a special teams player. He’s a do it all special teams star that could allow Moore to get less time on special teams and more time on offense.
The Ravens may be going to a run focused offense but passing the football is something they need to be able to do. They need to find receivers for this new offense. Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst will help at the tight end position, but the wide receivers have to contribute. Moore will be part of the mix and he will have a chance to shine.
