Jackson mentions that new Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner is a “big fan” of Moore and they could clearly use some extra depth at the position.
Jackson adds that Moore could be targeting a similar contract to that of Kyle Orton who signed a deal that pays him $3.5 million annually to be Tony Romo‘s backup. However, the opportunity to compete for a starting job could be too much for Moore to pass up.
Turner and the Chargers reportedly showed interest in Moore a few years ago, so there’s at least a speculative connection to be made.
Moore, 28, has spent the last few seasons as the Dolphins backup quarterback, but put together a decent year for the Panthers not too long ago. The Browns will almost certainly consider all available options at this point, but Moore could end up being a serviceable stop gap for them if they’re unwilling to overpay for a guy like Alex Smith.
