Ron Rivera doesn’t rule out bringing back Matt Moore

Matt Moore is part of an unusually solid second tier of quarterbacks that will be available this offseason.

We haven’t heard a lot of speculation about his future, although a Dolphins writer thought he might be a fit there.  Panthers coach Ron Rivera hasn’t ruled out bringing Moore back to Carolina.

Rivera said Friday “Moore can get involved in our quarterback situation,” according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer.

It seems like an unlikely match.  The Panthers figure to add a veteran to the mix who could help show Cam Newton the ropes.  Moore is 26 years old and has only started 13 career games.

Coming off shoulder surgery, Moore is an interesting pickup for a team looking for a backup with some experience and upside.  He’s just not a great fit for the Panthers.

    Since he came from the cowboys practice squad, the cowboys make the most sense. Assuming kitna is dealt to Minnesota or somewhere else.

    I’d keep him around, if Newton doesn’t do well and Jimmah tanks again, he’s got some decent past rapport with the receivers.

    How about Denver? They could use another backup for Orton. Maybe trade Tebow straight up for him. Carolina gets two similar style qbs, and Tebow could indoctrinate Newton on the finer points of being an author and icon.

    Agree with you completely, with the “Coming off shoulder surgery, Moore is an interesting pickup for a team looking for a backup with some experience and upside. He’s just not a great fit for the Panthers.” statement. He has all the upside, he just hasn’t been on the field enough to prove what his roof is.

    This guy really deserves a shot. Saw him in plenty of preseason games with the Cowboys, and was extremely pissed when we let him go. Didn’t see enough Panther games to see what went wrong in Carolina, but I know that this guy has a huge upside considering his age and skill set.

    Rivera – “We’re going to look like idiots when we suck again and have to pass on Andrew Luck.”

    The Dolphins. Yeah that may be a good fit, without the need of trading another draft pick. There is a connection, as the article alluded to, with Jeff Ireland during his tenure with the Cowboys.

    Unless Newt decides he wants #3.
