Elijah Moore says trade came 'out of nowhere,' but 'couldn't be happier' in Cleveland

The optimism surrounding Elijah Moore was once impossible to ignore during his time in New York.

Those days are long gone, but there's good news: Moore has received a fresh start in Cleveland. The Browns' trade for the former second-round pick of the Jets has granted the receiver a new opportunity to see the field more than he did in his first two seasons and carve out a larger role than the tertiary one he occupied in New York.

Moore's sudden change in scenery fulfills a wish he first vocalized during the 2022 season, and in his opinion, positions him for success, Nick Shook of reports.

"No, I did not, man, it was like out of nowhere, but I'm, you know, super excited," Moore said when asked if he expected to be traded. "You know, I feel like being here with Deshaun (Watson) and Coop (Amari Cooper) and just the whole team is like a very good mesh and I couldn't be happier to be here. You know, I feel like it's really going to go well."

"I can't predict the future, but I'm going to put my best foot forward," Moore said. "I feel like I'm here for a reason, so whatever happens, I'm going to be ready for it. People go through things and you got to learn from it. I feel like I'm the type of person that learns from my mistakes. You see what I'm saying? We're all human so I'm just going to try to do what I feel like I could've did better last year in whatever position I'm going to be in now."
