After drawing some interest elsewhere, backup quarterback Matt Moore will remain with the Dolphins.
Moore has agreed to stay in Miami as Ryan Tannehill’s backup. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that it’s a two-year deal worth $3.5 million.
Several teams were interested in Moore, and he visited the Colts and the Cowboys. But in the end he decided to stay with the Dolphins, the team he’s played for since 2011.
Moore hasn’t started a game since his first season in Miami and threw only one pass last year. The Dolphins hope he doesn’t have to play this year, either, and that Tannehill will play all 16 games just as he has in all four of his NFL seasons. But if Moore does have to play, the Dolphins think he’s an experienced player who can fill in and help them win.
