What's the market for QB Matt Moore?
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins are expected to lose backup quarterback Matt Moore to free agency in March. The unrestricted free agent is entering the quarterback market at a good time, considering the position is thin in both the draft and free agency.
Moore, who should get plenty of interest, said in the past that he prefers a team with a questionable quarterback situation. In essence, Moore wants a chance to compete in training camp for a starting job, which is something he wouldn’t have in Miami behind Ryan Tannehill.
Teams like the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and even the New York Jets in the AFC East may show interest in Moore. He’s a cheap alternative at quarterback who brings starting experience. Moore is 13-12 in his career as a starter.
Moore is capable enough to win a starting job in a handful of places. He also won't wreck a team’s salary cap. Moore is the type of low-risk, high-reward signing that should catch the attention of various teams.
