Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.
Neither side seemed particularly keen on a reunion, but each struck out in their pursuit of an upgrade. Moore has spent the past five years in Miami, and will be holding Ryan Tannehill's clipboard for the fifth straight season in 2016. Tannehill is extremely durable, leaving Moore little opportunity to get on the field. Moore turns 32 in August. Mar 15 - 7:11 PM

Free agent QB Matt Moore is visiting the Dolphins on Tuesday.

After striking out on visits to the Colts and Cowboys, Moore could be headed back to the team he has called home since 2011. Moore has attempted just 30 passes in the last four seasons, but he is one of the more capable backups in the league. He is likely looking for something similar to the two-year, $8 million deal Chad Henne signed to back up Blake Bortles in Jacksonville.

Free agent Matt Moore will visit the Colts on Monday.

Moore left his Cowboys visit without a deal. The Colts have a blank space behind Andrew Luck, who had been extremely durable until last season. It will be a weekend of pensive introspection for Rotoworld's Raymond Summerlin, who doesn't understand why the NFL doesn't see what he sees in Moore, a player who is probably the best quarterback in pro football.

Free agent QB Matt Moore will visit the Cowboys on Thursday.

The Cowboys desperately need a capable backup behind an aging and injury prone Tony Romo, and Moore would probably be an improvement on last year's Brandon Weeden/Matt Cassel/Kellen Moore fiasco. Raymond Summerlin has informed the Rotoworld staff that he will be switching his rooting allegiance to the Cowboys if Moore ends up in Big D.
Mar 9 - 2:57 PM

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins plan to move on from free agent backup QB Matt Moore.

Moore should generate interest toward the top end of a typically weak free agent QB class. Moore holds career marks of 7.0 YPA and 58.9 percent completions with a 33:28 TD-to-INT ratio and 13-12 record across 25 NFL starts. Moore is this year's top free agent quarterback per Rotoworld writer Ray Summerlin, who spends much of his spare time editing Moore's attributes on Madden.
Mar 3 - 4:04 PM

Matt Moore's one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Dolphins includes $1.6 million guaranteed.

In other words, Moore isn't going to get cut and is locked in as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup. Josh Freeman, who got $765,000 with no guaranteed money, will merely compete for developmental No. 3 duties.

Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore to a one-year contract.

Going on 31, Moore hasn't made a start since the 2011 season. ESPN's Adam Caplan reported the Bills would have pursued Moore had Matt Cassel not passed his physical. Instead, Moore will return as Ryan Tannehill's backup. Moore is Rotoworld sophomore Ray Summerlin's favorite quarterback in the NFL.

The Miami Herald reports free agent QB Matt Moore wants to re-sign with the Dolphins, but only if he gets "fair market value."

It's a good time to be a backup quarterback in the NFL. The going rate for a veteran No. 2 is around $4 million. The Dolphins can afford to pay Moore something close to that, though they appear to be waiting on transition player Charles Clay before making a move. Moore is one of the better backups available along with Tarvaris Jackson, Colt McCoy and Michael Vick.

Matt Moore is getting zero first-team reps at practice this week.

Coach Joe Philbin stirred up a hornet's nest by declining to throw support behind Ryan Tannehill earlier this week. But on the field, it doesn't look like anything has changed. Tannehill is fully expected to start against the Raiders in London, although we now know he's on a short leash going forward. Philbin is in a fight for his job.

Coach Joe Philbin "declined to answer directly" Monday when asked if Matt Moore will remain the Dolphins' backup quarterback this year.

Moore has battled a shoulder injury throughout training camp, and his $4 million base salary is quite rich for a backup quarterback. The Dolphins auditioned FAs Rex Grossman, John Skelton, and Brady Quinn at team headquarters Monday.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 01:37:00 PM

The Dolphins have not approached QB Matt Moore about a pay cut.

Moore is owed $4 million in the final year of his two-year deal. Per the Miami Herald, the Bucs pursued Moore last March. New Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey was in that Tampa Bay front office and may be a fan of the backup quarterback.

Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore to a two-year, $8 million contract.

The move further dilutes a wafer-thin QB market, leaving the likes of David Garrard, Chase Daniel, and Jason Campbell atop what's left. Considering the 2013 draft class, there's never been a worse time to need a quarterback. While it's fair to question Moore for spurning a likely camp competition elsewhere for clipboard toting, the deal makes him one of the league's better paid backups. He'll be collecting $4 million a year, living in South Florida, and not taking hits to the head so long as franchise passer Ryan Tannehill stays healthy. After the deal expires in two years, Moore could reenter free agency at age 31.

The NFL's Weekend Window for teams to negotiate with player reps begins on Saturday at midnight.

So, Friday night if you'll be burning midnight oil with Rotoworld. (We'll be up all night long, baby.) The window extends until 3:59PM ET on Tuesday, at which point teams can formally sign players. During the Weekend Window, players cannot make club-facility visits, and only reps for unrestricted free agents -- not RFAs -- are allowed to negotiate. We don't expect an overwhelming amount of hard news over the weekend, but plenty of buzz should emanate.

Mike Jurecki of XTRA Phoenix is "hearing" the Browns may have interest in free agent Matt Moore.

New Cleveland OC Norv Turner is a known fan of Moore, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer has repeatedly called Moore a stopgap option for the Browns' quarterback position. NFL free agents can commence formal negotiations with teams on March 9, and sign beginning on March 12. Moore is the top free-agent QB available.
Mon, Mar 4, 2013 03:38:00 PM

Dolphins OC Mike Sherman called free agent Matt Moore "five times last week alone" in an effort to encourage Moore back to Miami.

The Dolphins want Moore back "badly," but it's unrealistic to think he'll re-sign unless Moore simply decides he wants to hold a clipboard. (Marc Bulger, Kyle Orton, and Billy Volek have done that in recent years.) We still expect Moore to pursue an opportunity to start, and teams like Cleveland, Arizona, and the Jets could give him a much more realistic chance than Miami.
