Matt Moore will return to the Dolphins in 2016 as the No. 2 quarterback behind Ryan Tannehill. Moore has barely seen the field the past three seasons with 5 of 11 passing for 78 yards and two interceptions, and he's not expected to play much this season barring an injury to Tannehill. He's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
The Dolphins and Moore agreed to a two-year, $3.5 million contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Moore has logged very few snaps in four seasons as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup, completing 16 of 30 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown versus two interceptions. Expect Moore to serve in a similar capacity during the upcoming deal, barring injury.
Moore only attempted one pass this season as Ryan Tannehill was able to remain upright all season. Moore is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL. He is likely to either stay in that role with Miami or perhaps sign with a team that could possibly give him the chance to start but in the end will probably return him as insurance in case the starter goes down.
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.
