Dolphins To Re-Sign Matt Moore

The Dolphins will re-sign quarterback Matt Moore, as Ian Rapoport of tweets. It’s a two-year deal worth $3.5MM, according to a source familiar with the deal. "<strong

Moore, entering his sixth NFL season, has been surveying his options on the free agent market and the Dolphins reportedly did not want to spend much for a backup QB. Still, the two sides found their way back to one another somehow. Moore met with Miami brass today and, ultimately, a deal was hammered out.

The Colts had interest in Moore earlier this month but they no longer had a place for him after signing Scott Tolzien. The Cowboys also expressed interest in Moore. Dolphins quarterback Logan Thomas recently indicated that he’s been told he’ll have a legitimate chance to compete for the Dolphins’ backup job behind Ryan Tannehill next season, so many questioned whether Moore would be brought back in 2016. It remains to be seen how that competition will shake out. If Moore keeps his place as the No. 2 signal caller, this will mark his fifth season backing up Tannehill.

    With the quarterback market the way it is, Moore seems to me like he’d be a stop-gap candidate for one of the desperate teams yet his market either never materializes or he eventually opts for South Beach familiarity. Moore had a decent year in 2011 pre-Tannehill and looked passable in ’09 pre-Cam. Yet Tannehill’s durability keeps him on the shelf. A good deal for the Dolphins, though.
