Elijah Moore won’t play against Broncos after Jets trade request

The Jets’ offense has been a problem from the start of the season, and the team’s head coach was seeking an adjustment. The official’s decision on their team made Elijah Moore unhappy, and he responded poorly to it.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed that Moore had asked for a trade because he was “frustrated” with his role on the team. He was given the day off from practice on Thursday for personal reasons. It is reported that the 22-year-old seems to be unhappy with his playing time. 

Moore’s appeal probably stems from the fact that he hasn’t been able to make any headway in the campaign thus far. Moore is sixth on the Jets in catches (16), fifth in receiving yards (203), and fourth in targets (30), while participating in 82% of the team’s offensive plays this season, the most of any New York receiver.

The youngster was only targeted once in New York’s 27-10 win against the Packers last Saturday, and that play was called back due to a penalty.

Elijah Moore, a second-round pick by the Jets in 2021, has not gotten off to the kind of 2022 season that many hoped for. He played in 11 games as a rookie, starting six of them, and he caught 43 passes for 538 yards and five touchdowns, for an average of 12.5 yards per catch.

However, Moore won’t be able to play this weekend, and the Jets have no intention of giving up on the former Ole Miss hero. As per multiple media reports, the franchise has no plans to trade Moore before the November 1 deadline.
