Matt Moore Hoping To Re-Sign With Dolphins, But Unlikely To Take Discount

Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that backup QB Matt Moore is hoping to re-sign with the Dolphins at some point this offseason.

  • However, Moore would only do so if Miami paid him a fair market-value contract.
  • Beasley adds that Moore is unlikely to offer the Dolphins a huge hometown discount to be back with them in 2015.

Beasley mentions that the going rate for a quality veteran backup starts around $4 million per year, but the Dolphins could still afford to re-sign Moore at that price, even after their spending spree last week.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is reportedly in “win now” mode, so there’s at least a chance Miami could be willing to meet that kind of asking price to retain Moore.

“[The Dolphins] want to sign him,” said a Beasley’s source.

Moore, 30, signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Dolphins that included $4 million guaranteed back in 2013.

Since then, Moore has appeared in just three games for Miami, completing four of 10 passing attempts for 74 yards and two interceptions.
