Considering the triumvirate of backup quarterbacks the Dallas Cowboys ran out on the field in 2015 didn’t exactly do much to impress, it’s no surprise the Cowboys could be looking for a fresh face to back up Tony Romo.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys are bringing in former Miami Dolphins backup Matt Moore in for a visit.

Romo was 3-1 in four starts in 2015 as injuries sidelined him for a majority of the season. Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Kellen Moore combined for a 1-11 mark in the remaining 12 games on the schedule. The only victory in a non-Romo start came with Cassel under center in a 19-16 win over Washington in December.

The trio combined for 2,793 yards, 11 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

Moore hasn’t started a regular season game since 2011 when he was 6-6 in 12 starts after replacing Chad Henne as the Dolphins starter. He passed for 2,497 yards with 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 total games for Miami.

    I was disappointed when he was cut by the Cowboys, I thought he could have been a very good player, reminded me of a Romo type player during training camp.

    Hell, he’s better than the starters for 3 or 4 other teams. And that’s the definition of damning with faint praise.

    Why wasn’t Manziel released today? Did he destroy his phone in hopes of not making his release official? Are the Browns chartering a plane to a Miami nightclub to release him in person?

    Does anyone remember Matt Moore playing preseason games for Dallas a while back or do I have the wrong guy?

    Kicking the tires on other backups while you wait for Manziel to get cut Jerruh?

    Not exactly a “fresh face”, seeing as how he started his NFL career with the Cowboys. The Panthers signed him to their roster after Dallas tried to stash him on their practice squad.

    What no Rg3?
    No Rg3 to the Texans?
    I thought 10 teams were interested in Rg3?

    I think Matt Moore is a better starting QB than a few of the low grade starters that played last year.
    He’ll be a great back up, way better than what they had before.

    I finally came to the conclusion about Koa Misi. And now Matt Moore that they are mediocre at best. The team could find just about anyone else and probably save money. It’s a good gauge to use.
