Training camp will look really familiar to cornerback D.J. Moore this summer. The Spartanburg native, entering his fifth year in the league, signed a one-year deal with the Panthers. He announced the news via his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon. Moore said he grew up as a Cowboys fan, but always pulled for the Panthers, too. He likes the makeup of the current roster. "Everybody on that team is young and up-and-coming pretty much. So the sky is pretty much the limit," Moore told the Observer in a phone interview. "Last year a break here and there, and the team would have been 10-6 instead of (7-9). I feel like it's a good situation." Moore, a former All-American at Vanderbilt, spent his first four seasons with the Chicago Bears. He tallied 10 interceptions and two touchdowns while with the Bears, including a 20-yard interception return for a touchdown against Cam Newton and the Panthers in Week 4 of the 2011 season. He said he was hoping to land a multi-year deal, but chalked it up to the soft market for corners. Moore said if he plays well, he could sign a long-term deal with the Panthers next year.
