The Chicago Bears are starting to show an unsettling pattern, as another one of their players gets arrested this offseason.
Wide receiver David Moore, who signed with the franchise just three months ago, was arrested on drug and weapons charges on July 4 in Gainesville, Texas. According to Cooke County online records, the 27-year-old was released on Monday, and posted a $5,000 bond.
Moore is the third Bears player to be arrested this offseason, since Ryan Poles took over as general manager in January.
On April 23, receiver Byron Pringle was arrested for reckless driving and driving on a suspended license; on June 24, linebacker Matthew Adams was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm without a state license. All three players were signed this offseason by Poles, who has been a personnel assistant since 2009, turned executive director of player personnel in 2021, before getting this job with Chicago.
The Bears have not yet commented on Moore’s arrest.
