Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are unlikely to re-sign impending free agent Matt Moore.

He's nearing the end of his seven-year tenure with Miami as "both sides currently feel a need for change." While he never came out and directly said it, Moore implied he was unhappy the Dolphins didn't give him a chance to start despite the underwhelming play of Jay Cutler this past season. The 33-year-old has carved a nice niche for himself as a veteran backup and shouldn't take long to resurface this offseason.
Jan 23 - 3:27 PM

Dolphins declared QB Matt Moore, TE AJ Derby, DT Davon Godchaux, RB Damien Williams, CB Tory McTyer, and OLs Isaac Asiata and Jermon Bushrod inactive for Week 13 against the Broncos.

Jay Cutler is back in the starting lineup. Moore is dealing with a foot injury significant enough that he isn't healthy enough to back up Cutler.

Dolphins QB Matt Moore missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices with a foot injury.

It's looking like Moore will miss Sunday's game against the Broncos. It means David Fales will be thrust into action if brittle Jay Cutler suffers another injury.

Matt Moore completed 23-of-34 passes for 215 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Dolphins' Week 12 loss to New England.

He rushed twice for nine yards. Moore didn't perform any better than we would have expected Jay Cutler (concussion) to in this spot, and the Dolphins may turn back to Cutler for Week 13 against the Dolphins if he gets medically cleared.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 05:05:00 PM

Matt Moore completed 17-of-28 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Moore entered the game at the start of the second half with Jay Cutler going through concussion protocol. He brought the Dolphins back from a 20-7 deficit to tie the game with three minutes left, connecting with Kenny Stills on a 61-yard bomb. This was the second time on the season that Moore entered the game in jailbreak game script and looked sharp, but even if he draws the start in Week 12, he will only be a QB2 option against a Patriots defense that has gotten better as the season moves along.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 06:25:00 PM

Matt Moore completed 25-of-44 passes for 176 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the Dolphins' 40-0, Week 8 loss to the Ravens.

Both of Moore's — awful — picks were housed for Ravens touchdowns in one of the worst losses in Dolphins franchise history. Moore's protection was bad, but Moore was worse, completely withering in the face of the blitz. When Moore did have time to throw, he struggled to drive the ball. It was bad enough of a performance that the Dolphins will not hesitate to return to Jay Cutler (ribs) if he's healthy enough for Week 9. In what constitutes a bit of a national emergency, the Dolphins will be back in primetime, hosting the Raiders for Sunday Night Football.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 11:38:00 PM

Matt Moore completed 13-of-21 passes for 188 yards with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday in the Dolphins’ Week 7 win over the Jets.

Moore came in cold off the bench after Jay Cutler left with a chest injury early in the third quarter. It took Moore a couple drives to shake off the rust but he hit his stride when the Dolphins needed him most, leading a 14-point fourth quarter comeback to give Miami its fourth win of the season. Both of his touchdowns went to Kenny Stills including the game-tying score from two yards out with 6:19 remaining. His interception occurred on a miscommunication with tight end Anthony Fasano in the third quarter. In less than two quarters, Moore threw for more yards than Cutler had in any of his previous four games. With Cutler a long shot to play on a short week, we should see Moore back under center Thursday against the Ravens.

Matt Moore received the first snap during team drills in Tuesday's practice.

In his first practice with the team, Jay Cutler saw work with the first-team offense a couple plays later. That script should switch over the next couple days, with Cutler eventually taking over all the first-team reps. Despite getting the first snaps today, Moore is headed for a backup role.

The NFL and NFLPA have concluded that the concussion protocol was "not strictly followed" for Matt Moore's head injury during the Wild Card Round against Pittsburgh.

Moore got absolutely leveled by Bud Dupree but miraculously missed only one play. It's troubling that teams are still having a hard time grasping the concussion protocol now that it's been in place for a few seasons. The NFL sent the Dolphins a written warning and said the team's staff will be required to undergo a full review of the league's protocol. It seems like the Dolphins are getting off easy.

Matt Moore completed 29-of-36 passes for 289 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Dolphins' 30-12, Wild Card loss to the Steelers, also losing two fumbles.

Moore was largely crisp, ripping chunk gains against the Steelers' sieve-like pass defense, but it was his three turnovers that killed any chance Miami had of springing the road upset. Moore lost a back-breaking fumble with time winding down in the first half, giving the ball away at the Steelers' eight-yard line. The Dolphins were trying to cut the Steelers' lead to 20-13 going into halftime. Moore also took a savage helmet-to-helmet hit from Bud Dupree that could have very easily concussed him. Moore minded the store down the stretch in Ryan Tannehill's absence, but didn't show enough to suggest he deserves another starting chance going on age 33. Miami's longtime backup is signed for $1.75 million in 2017, and should be back at that price.
Sun, Jan 8, 2017 04:21:00 PM

Matt Moore completed 24-of-34 passes for 205 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to New England.

Moore wasn't the reason for Miami's loss; New England's passing game simply shredded Miami's barely-there pass defense, which was missing top CB Byron Maxwell. Moore did what was asked of him, going above and beyond managing the game and keeping the Dolphins competitive for at least a few quarters. The Fins are still hoping to get back Ryan Tannehill (knee) for the playoffs, but it's fair to question whether he's a significant upgrade on Moore.
Sun, Jan 1, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Matt Moore completed 16-of-30 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Dolphins' Week 16 overtime win over the Bills.

Moore completed barely half his passes, but made plays when the Dolphins needed them, and stayed out of the way as Jay Ajayi got fed on the ground. Moore's yardage was inflated by YAC due to awful Bills tackling, but for the second straight game, he did what he needed to do in place of Ryan Tannehill. Moore has gotten the best of hapless divisional opponents New York and Buffalo, but faces a monumental Week 17 test in the New England Patriots. Moore will be hard to trust as a QB2 in that one.

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen praised "gunslinger" Matt Moore.

"He's always reminded me of Matt Hasselbeck," Christensen said. "He could start for a bunch of teams." Moore is on a good run right now after leading a game-winning drive in relief of Ryan Tannehill in Week 14 and dropping four touchdowns on the Jets last Saturday. The road gets tougher as the Dolphins head to Buffalo this week, but Miami clearly thinks Moore is up to the task.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 09:38:00 AM

Matt Moore completed 12-of-18 passes for 236 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Miami's Week 15 win over the Jets.

Moore looked sharp in place of Ryan Tannehill, with three of his six incompletions coming on drops. He threw two of his touchdowns on goal line passes to Dion Sims. Moore connected on a wide open deep shot to Kenny Stills for 52 yards and had Jarvis Landry house a 66-yard TD for his other scores. There's wasn't much of a drop off between Moore and Tannehill. Moore has a matchup with Buffalo in Week 16.
