For the Bearcats' first scrimmage this season, Gunner Kiel looks very much ready to lead this team as quarterback. But it seems like Moore has something to say about being one of the favorite receivers as he amassed a scrimmage-high 138 yards receiving, most of which were on deep routes that dropped into his lap, literally.
Insider caught up with Moore after practice to talk about being a larger part of the offense for this upcoming season.
"Well, first of all, it feels great to get out of that bubble (Sheakley) and finally play outside in the fresh air," Moore said. "And why not play in Paul Brown Stadium? It's going to feel good playing in a NFL stadium for the next year. Not many college football players can say that."
With catching 45 passes for over 645 yards last season, Moore was also asked how he looks to become a larger part of the offense.
"I've been talking with coach a lot in the offseason and he's been telling me to be more of a leader on the team and keep motivating my teammates. As for being a larger part of the offense, when you become more accustomed to how an offense runs, the game begins to slow down for you and you find holes in the defense so much easier. We just have to let the game come to us sometimes."
