    Too bad. It is really Tannehill's team now. Holy smoke.

    Garrard just could not stay healthy.

    Opens a roster spot.

    Guess we couldn't get a deal done involving matt moore.. Unless of course we roll with Devlin as the backup. Either way, the move was necessary. Interested to see who we bring in.. Gaffney or a corner?

    Whether you like Moore or not.... he clearly is healthier, and more competent than Garrard. Right choice for sure.

    Damn, was kinda hoping we would trade Moore for a WR or CB or a pick since Garrard has basically no value.

    Well, atleast this opens up a roster spot.

    I thought Garrard was the man! At least that is what camp reports said before his injury. And Moore sucks! We all know that from his horrible camp. Thank god for Tannehill.

    That is how I read this as well. The aformentioned market for Moore never materialized. How else would you explain releasing another veteran Qb that can directly compete with your trade bait. Not too surprising since the best anyone could have hoped for Moore would have been a 5th or 6th. We didn't even get that.

    If true. It's about damn time, they don't need 4 QBs to take 1 roster spot away from someone they need.

    I'm on board.

    In Today's NFL, ****ing "Please pass the ball" structure, a qb better be able to come right in and handle it.

    Good move. With Garrard on the roster no one would take a Moore trade seriously. If Moore does get traded, Garrard will come back after week one, hence no guaranteed salary.

    I would like to tell everyone, RIGHT NOW.....

    I was right about Beck. He's not a quality starter.

    Too bad...seems like a good guy in the locker room and would have helped RT. And this confirms that there really wasn't any market for Moore in a trade. Team firmly in the hands of a rookie QB now.

    This may not seem like fun now but it will make Miami stronger to start 2012.

    FYI Guys.. we aren't keeping 7 recievers on the roster, so if we wanted to sign gaffney, we'd have already cut one, most likely legedu.. The spot probably gets filled by a corner.

    Or that there was a market for Moore and aren't going to release so another team could just pick him up outright. They could be playing hardball with someone trying to wait it out. We'll see, if he's not traded after week one then there was no market.

    Never should've signed him in the first place. Bad signing.

    see the impression I've gotten is that Tannehill has earned the respect of the vets, and Matt Moore already had it. Plus, Moore has said he will help Tanny anyway he can. All of that made Garrard being kept on pointless...

    or as somebody else mentioned we cut him now so we don't give him a garunteed (can't spell the word worth crap) contract and we trade Moore.

    Hmmm..

    As some have stated we might of just released him to push another team in a trade for Moore since they knew we are not keeping 4 QB's.

    Garrard gets cut and re-signed after Week 1 after Moore gets traded.

    Are we smart enough to pull this off?

    Also, I think roster spot goes to a CB unless they think Jimmy Wilson will be playing CB/Safety.

    If we do add a WR I think M. Moore or Naanee gets cut.

    No surprise. Like both guys (Matt & David) but one of them has to go, this time it was David.
    Now it's time for Tannehill to show the way! :brewskis:

    I've been speculating for a while that the reason the Dolphins might not want to get rid of Garrard during cut date would be because they need to make sure he's healthy and practicing before they cut him, so that they don't have to go through an injury settlement. Sure enough he wasn't healthy enough to practice at cut date, but he is now and has been doing agility drills without problem, so now he's healthy enough to cut safely.

    I imagine the Dolphins will keep him on speed dial in case anything happens during the season, provided another team doesn't sign him. He knows our offense.

    Yup he got the million but he didn't get the rest of the 2.25 he would have if he was on the roster Sept. 9th. That should open up another 2.25 mill to spend this season.
