Holder looked at players who are still on their rookie contracts and decided that Moore has the best opportunity to break out with DeAndre Hopkins now off the roster.

“With DeAndre Hopkins in Tennessee and a new coaching staff in Arizona, that should lead to more targets for Moore in 2024, especially down the field. It’s time for him to start building his case for a second contract by improving upon his ADOT of 5.3 yards last season, per Player Profiler.”

“A new play-caller should help with the latter, but he also needs to win on deep routes and prove that he can stay on the field.”

Rondale Moore is currently heading into the third season of his four-year rookie contract. He was originally drafted in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Cardinals.

While Moore battled a handful of injuries last season, one of which caused him to miss the final six games, the 23-year-old definitely showed breakout potential, even with a loaded WR core consisting of Marquise Brown and DeAndre Hopkins.

In the seven games where Moore played in over 80% of offensive snaps, he averaged around 60 yards per game. This is quite a bump compared to his rookie season, where he averaged just 30 YPG.

Rondale is also regarded as one of the fastest players in the league. Back at Purdue, he allegedly ran a 4.29 40-yard dash, which would put him in company with Tyreek Hill.

Is a breakout season loading for Rondale Moore?
