AFC Notes: Browns, Elijah Moore, Ravens, Steelers


New Browns WR Elijah Moore says he has been a fan of WR Amari Cooper since he was young and is excited to have the chance to play next to one of his role models.

“I heard about [Cooper] when I was young,” Moore said, via Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal. “So hearing him do his thing as far as how he moves and just his dedication to football is how we’re built over there. So major respect.”

Moore also spoke about what he can bring to the team and has already had conversations with the coaches regarding what role he will play.

“My strengths, I feel like I’m a route runner, so wherever they need me, I can do it,” Moore continued. “That’s why I feel like I can go outside and in. I’ve been practicing this since I was 15 years old. This is something I try to craft on, this is something I hold as you would say Coop holds. He’s known for being a route runner. I’ve been studying Coop since I was little.”

“Yeah, man, I’m super excited to play the role that they want me to play,” Moore concluded. “Talking with the coaches and everything, I feel like we are on the same page. I’m just grateful to be here.”
