The Chicago Bears have already seen a couple of players in wide receiver Byron Pringle and linebacker Matt Adams get arrested this offseason and now, wide receiver David Moore has joined them. Texoma’s KXII was the first to report the news.

Per TMZ, officers allegedly found Moore asleep in the driver’s seat of his vehicle while sitting in a Taco Bell drive-thru. The incident occurred around 11:18 PM on July 3 in Moore’s hometown of Gainesville, Texas.

Police say Moore smelled of weed and they conducted a search of his vehicle after waking him up. During the search a “package of THC candies along with three pistols” were found in the car. Moore was subsequently arrested for possession of a controlled substance and unlawful carrying of weapons. He was booked into Cooke County jail on July 4 on the two charges and bonded out shortly after.

This is officially a troubling trend

NFL teams don’t want one single NFL player arrested during the offseason. No matter who they are or what their role on the team may be.

Even Jerry Jeudy’s earlier arrest is something coaches and teams don’t want to go through. Although it was proven that Jeudy did nothing wrong, the optics are never good when the handcuffs go on. Whether that’s fair or not.

Usually, it’s a reflection of poor decision-making any time someone is arrested. But when it comes to the Bears’ arrests, it’s a reflection of really poor judgement and decision-making.

And the Bears have now had three players arrested since April 23. That’s only a span of about two-and-a-half months.

Pringle was charged with reckless driving on a suspended license, but he also had a child in the backseat of the car and became confrontational with police before being apprehended.

Adams’ arrest centered around a misdemeanor weapons charge, but he was also cited for carrying metal-piercing bullets.

And now, Moore has been arrested after allegedly falling asleep in the driver’s seat of his own vehicle while sitting in a drive-thru. And, police found edibles and weapons in his vehicle.

In a football sense, it’ll be interesting to see how the Bears handle Moore’s arrest. If he’s let go or suspended, it could very well hurt the receiving room. Moore is certainly not the epitome of a premier receiver in the NFL, but he certainly had a chance to compete for a roster spot this season. The Bears need depth specifically in 2022, there’s no doubt about that.

Moore has 78 receptions for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns over the course of his career. The 13 receiving touchdowns are the most among the Bears’ current crop of receivers and the receptions/yardage total is third on the team behind Darnell Mooney and Tajae Sharpe.
