Miami Dolphins Retain QB Matt Moore

Matt Moore will remain a Miami Dolphin.  

After drawing interest from several teams including the Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys (though none made him an offer), the Miami Dolphins decided to retain backup QB Matt Moore.

Moore, 31, who meet with team on Tuesday, has spent over half of his career in Miami. Moore became the Dolphins’ starting quarterback in 2011 after a season-ending Chad Henne injury, and has served the last four seasons as Ryan Tannehill’s back-up, appearing in only 6 games, throwing a total of 30 passes.

Moore threw one pass in all of 2015.

While the Dolphins hosted other quarterbacks like former Oklahoma State stand out Brandon Weeden, at the end of the day it seems Matt Moore stood out as a familiar face and clear choice for Miami.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the deal is a two-year deal worth $3.5 million.
