Would you be comfortable with Devlin as your second string QB should something happen to Moore?
if something happened to moore I suppose Devlin is as good a backup to a backup we will get, but the idea of him as the main backup is not something I would be happy with
Yes so trade Moore
Personally I would love for Moore to be the back up atleast one more year.. But if some one blows us away with an offer for Moore ill be open to trading him.
It will happen next year!
Nobody will give up anything for a scrub QB. He has been a FA twice in the past couple years and nobody has offered him anything
He has not been on the free agent market since 2011, and he increased his stock with his play in Miami.
If Moore were to get hurt this season, yes I would be comfortable with Devlin as the #2. I also wouldn't be surprised if they try and trade Moore next offseason for a mid to late round draft pick and promote Devlin then.
I like having a 2 with real games experience. Keep Devlin at 3.
The genesis of this question implies that both RT and Moore are out...yikes.
No just Moore being out.
Did we sign Moore for one year or two? If he's only signed for one year he would become a free agent next year and would give us no trading ability. If its 2 years then we have some time, if not we might want to look at trading him at the end of TC.
He got a 2 year extension in March.
Thanks, I was leaning that way, but couldn't remember.
If you're saying "would you want Devlin as backup if Moore goes down," then you are really asking if we want him as #3 which he already is.
I suppose Moore could get hurt in practice or exhibition and hence Devlin is the back up....which I would not trust at all. I do not think he can compete at an acceptable QB level to help an NFL franchise. That is my answer.
moore might get u a late round pick but thats about it. his agent surveyed the market and he resigned to be a backup. smart decision.
Moore is signed through next season (2014)but he's due to make $5.5 million in 2014. Not sure we pay $5.5 million for a backup QB
The Jets were looking at him. Do you blame them?
but to the question, no, not now. Moore would be very good with these WR's/TE's. So would Devlin. Devline is smoother in Red zone to me minus some endzone INT's at end of practice/game last year.
We have 3 good QB's. Moore FA next year. DEvlin gets signed.
we dont know if jets were looking at him since he never became a free agent although im sure he was on radar but not at any more money than what we paid or less
I believe alot of teams were looking at Moore, as a backup to compete. Moore simply chose to stay where the water was fine and getting finer.
and i correct myself on him being a FA, but he most certainly could become trade bait next year if we draft another QB. football johnny. lol
at his price ni team will trade for him next year
Too bad the Miami Dolphins are trying out that Tannehil experiment. They are usually more than willing to give up a second round pick for a scrub backup. Oh wait... That's us. Yea, there aren't to many other teams that pull that crap
Moore needs to get out of the way so that we can be one step closer to having a winning quarterback.
nobody is going to trade for Matt Moore. There are free agents of similar talent on the free agent market still
The only trade you may get for Moore is a team alive in the playoff chase that loses a starter and has a weak option at backup. Of course with the trade deadline being 20 Oct, the likelihood of that scenario playing out is minimal. Moore will be here for 2 more seasons. He's a decent back up. I like Devlin but logic dictates you roll with experience in case of injury. Devlin just hasn't shown enough yet.
Devlin will eventually surpass Moore as a player, but Moore is also a well respected person in the clubhouse. That's tough to replace. I'd like to see Devlin play significant time with the 2's.
