Wide receiver Elijah Moore appeared to take a shot at his former teammate Zach Wilson after getting traded.
Earlier this week, Moore, who wanted out of New York, was traded to the Browns for two draft picks.

During his introductory press conference, fans believe Moore took a shot at Wilson when he said that he was going to play for a “legit QB” in Deshaun Watson.
Elijah Moore called Deshaun Watson "legit" QB, says believes in him, talked yesterday.

“He’s a legit quarterback,” Moore said. “It’s someone that has been doing some amazing things around the league. He has respect from everybody around the league.
“They talk really highly about him here and they believe in him, and man, with him being my quarterback, I believe in him too.
So, I’m just grateful to be one of his guys.”
Fans went on to note how Wilson would regularly miss a wide-open Moore.
Just been thinking about all of the times last year Zach Wilson missed / neglected an egregiously wide open Elijah Moore
And how that probably doesn’t happen with an MVP caliber QBpic.twitter.com/DJ1L2UN81T
