After attempting to pound out a trade agreement with Denver for highly touted Kyle Orton, Miami switched gears and signed veteran QB Matt Moore (CAR), to a two year, 5 million dollar deal today.
Matt Moore is 7 – 6 as a career starter for the Carolina Panthers over the last four years. The undrafted QB from Oregon State boasts (I use that word loosely) a career passer rating of 55.2, 5 TD’s, and 10 INT’s. In all fairness, he did play for a very underwhelming Panthers team, so these statistics might be somewhat skewed. Nonetheless, I don’t feel this was a productive signing. The odds of Matt Moore pushing Chad Henne for the starting QB job, is about as great as the Cleveland Browns winning Super Bowl XLVI; sorry Dog Pound.
I don’t believe for a minute that the Dolphins are satisfied with the stalemate of the Orton deal, and I do believe that they’ll continue their pursuit of him into Training Camp.
Stay tuned Dol-Fans, it’s getting increasingly interesting with each passing day.
What’s your take on the Dolphins QB situation?
