The Dolphins announced on Friday that they have re-signed veteran quarterback Matt Moore for the upcoming 2015 season. Moore is entering his ninth NFL season and has enjoyed stints with both the Panthers and Dolphins. This will be his fifth consecutive year in Miami. After starting 12 games in 2011, Moore has only appeared in five games over the past three seasons.
Seahawks backup QB Tarvaris Jackson is meeting with the Dolphins Thursday, according to the Palm Beach Post. The return of Dolphins' backup Matt Moore remains in question. After breaking into the NFL in 2006 with the Vikings, Jackson's best season was 2011 when he started 15 games for the Seahawks and threw for 14 touchdowns and 3,091 yards.
Dolphins backup quarterback Matt Moore is headed for unrestricted free agency, and the team can't afford to pay him the $4 million he made this year, reports ESPN.com. Moore would love a chance to compete for a starting job -- something that won't happen in Miami. "If there's a situation elsewhere that is intriguing, it might happen," Moore said. "I'm going to kind of feel my way through it." Moore has started 25 games in his eight-year career, none since 2011.
Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore got some action in Week 4 against the Raiders in London, but not in the circumstances he imagined to be in. With the game well in hand, Moore came in for Ryan Tannehill for the final three drives of the night. He did not attempt a pass and had two carries for minus-2 yards in a 38-14 victory.
While Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin still has yet to announce a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ryan Tannehill continues to insist he will start Sunday and backup quarterback Matt Moore appears to be backing up that claim. "I've taken zero reps. Ryan's prepared the same way he always does and I've prepared the same way I always do," Moore said, per CSNBayArea.com. "We showed up on Tuesday and everything was the same. Obviously, I did get a couple of text messages from friends who read things and it caught me off guard but nothing was said in here."
