Seeing the commotion brewing from afar, DJ Moore decided to take matters into his own hands and play peacemaker.

Two fans began jawing at each other within the first few rows of Bank of America Stadium near the Panthers’ tunnel. The dispute was close enough to the field that Moore was able to intervene.

The receiver climbed the wall and stood on the railing in front of the seats. It’s unclear what started the argument or what was said. But it was clear that Moore was trying to resolve the situation.

As Moore calmed down the fans, he received support from nearby spectators and apparently walked away without any damage to the seats.

Moore is preparing for the 2022 season looking for a year in which he caught 91 passes for 1,157 yards and four touchdowns. He is entering the first year of a three-year contract worth over $61 million.

Not only did the Panthers lock up a star wideout, they apparently got some extra safety.
