Post Dolphins stay busy - Resign Matt Moore
Quote:
The Miami Dolphins aren't finished re-signing their own players.

NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reports quarterback Matt Moore has decided to stay in South Florida, signing a new contract with the Dolphins, according to a source close to the player. This comes hours after Miami re-signed wide receiver Brian Hartline.

Terms of Moore's new contract were not immediately known and the Dolphins have yet to announce the deal.

That is awesome news.

I'm starting to wonder about other potential FA signings that we've been speculating.

It really is great news. I wonder how they convinced him to stay on as a backup rather than search for a starting role.

This is great news. I was afraid Moore was a luxury Miami could not afford to resign. He is a solid QB.

I'm happy about this. I do think he could have started somewhere, but he would have been a 1 year band aid.

Must've been a tough decision because of his competitive nature. Must've come down to stability. ..... but it's a win-win in the grand scheme of things for him.

Still would've liked to see him compete to start somewhere. Thought his arm would've been perfect for Fitz here in AZ.

Speculation is when his agent spoke to teams with a need at QB, he didn't see a clear path for Moore to become a starter, which is surprising. He is certainly better than at least 20% of the QBs that started last year, probably more.

Wow.........didn't see this one coming........if there ever was a year for Moore to test the FA market it was this one. He must realize being the next Don Strock isn't such a bad thing.

Perhps the recent trend of going young in the draft at that position is changing the landscape for FA QB's.

A lot of speculation on it...

My speculation is his wife and he decided they would rather not move, 8 mil is a nice payday.
He will be a 31 year old FA, surely not past his prime and will be able to asses the market then..

Its really a smart move if a person is able to put ego and pride aside. Now he has no pressure, just show up to work and have fun...

According to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com, who broke the news of Moore's re-signing, the quarterback got a two-year, $8 million deal.

By re-signing Moore, the Dolphins avoided a potential problem. Ryan Tannehill is the undisputed starter on this team, but Moore is just about the perfect backup — someone good enough to be a starter but also a team-first guy who will accept his role.

I am glad Moore is staying, but I am surprised he didn't try to get a starting gig elsewhere. It is good for the Dolphins though.

Elated that Matt Moore is still with the Dolphins. Having a "QUALITY" backup quarterback is important in this league.

Miami can win games with Matt Moore on the field if Tannehill get's hurt.

Post Re: Dolphins stay busy - Resign Matt Moore
I have to say that there is still a part of me that wishes Matt Moore was the franchise QB Miami had been looking for...and I say that as a huge Tannehill fan. He would have been awesome to watch if he could just be a bit more consistent in his overall game. I was very opposed to giving him a fair shake at first because I wanted to give Henne a chance to succeed but in retrospect Moore just has that personality you root for.

I'm very happy he's coming back.

Solid move, Moore is a great backup. He's 100% worth the 2-year $8M deal. Having a quality backup like Moore is a luxury and one we'll be glad to have if Tannehill ever gets banged up.
:yay:

He is not a starting QB now. I think he could be an effective starting QB and you do not. Cool.

Nice backup & I am glad he is coming back in that role but if I am a team in need of a starting QB & signed Moore to be that I might yawn once instead of twice.
