I would love to bring back Matt Moore has a backup as well!
If he has half a brain he'll go elsewhere. He's never going to be a great QB but he could probably start for.10 teams right now, Jets and Bills included.
I'd love to keep him as a backup for the right price. But, in all honesty, Moore deserves a fair shot at starting for a lowly team. He was a class act in his time here and really stood behind Tannehill in his rookie season. Good luck to Moore wherever he ends up.
Realistically I think he would be the best QB on the rosters of:
Titans (with Hasselbeck not what he once was)
I think I'd take him over Josh Freeman, too.
The problem is that he's a lousy practice player and he's not quite good enough that someone is going to want to hand him the keys and build around him. I think he can easily start for those teams mentioned, but my guess is that they'll be looking to hit a home run elsehwere.
Life's short, hope he stays but the NFL QB money out there is gonna be hard to turn down.
Heard the Browns are highly interested in Matt Moore.
Why? Best to bring in a vet to play the #3 role and let Devlin get his #2 Reps that he actually needs to continue developing.
Why would we bring back Matt? At this point he is a progress stopper. Its not like we are pinning our hopes to the Super Bowl this season?
Its hopefully a year of further development of our QB/Offense and team. Maybe a step into the playoffs if things go right.
It is like Don Strock when we had Woodley. When things go south in a meaningful game, it is nice to know you have that security blanket on the sideline that can come in and right the ship.
Moore will go to place where he can compete...
Where ever Moore goes I wish him well. Hope he stays but understand if he goes.
We dont need to over pay for a back up. Devlin will be fine and getting a rooke late may pay benifits down the road.
content with devlin at the #2 at times devlin looked better than tannehill..
very confused with the infatuation with Devlin by some members here. He is an undrafted 2nd year qb who has yet to be on the active roster... What is so damn impressive about him? If he can beat out a Veteran for the #2 job then im all for it. But I am not ready to hand over the #2 job to a player who has proven nothing. And to those who say backup qb is not important think back to don strock, earl morrall, and bernie kosar.
Very confused with the infatuation to have an average at best QB taking away reps from a young QB during a rebuilding year.
Because Devlin entering a REAL game SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME!!!!
Can Matt Moore hep Tannehill continue to develop into a top QB? Yes.
Can Pat Devlin, an undrafted Qb fighting for a place on a roster do the same?
I want my backup to be able to work with, teach and improve my young starter. I want a smart capable vet, not a project.
Philbin is high on Devlin, we would probably be wise to trust Philbin in regards to such things.
Worth a shot, but very low probability of success.
He would be a backup here. He wants to start. He is good enough to start somewhere else.
DEVLIN is d*(k.
We should bring in all 360 lbs of Jamarcus Russell to compete for the backup spot...
Or Pat White to run the read option.
Drugs are Awesome Dude. Matt Moore could be a BACK UP on 10 Teams right now. He is a Back Up. Not Elite. Average.

Josh Freeman > Matt Moore. All Day. And Twice on Sunday Man.
Don't blame Tannehill at all for pushing Matt Moore to stay.
So long as Moore is here, Tannehill will keep his job.
theres a huge difference between Philbin being "high on Devlin" and Devlin "being our backup" Philbin likes Devlin cus he is a brown noser. I think at one point on Hard Knocks Philbin or another member of the staff called him "teachers pet" point is I want my backup to be a decent threat to the starter should he slack of (think Sanchez and Brunell; Brunell was never a threat) and to help Tanny see things he hasn't seen before and how a certain team blitzes into the boundary, things Devlin HASN'T SEEN because he has never even been ACTIVE!!!!!!
Moore would be smart to look elsewhere if he is interested in trying to start. I personally think he is not a good nfl starter overall and would be best served as a backup but there is a weak FA class and he may get a chance to compete elsewhere. I dont think our staff is really that high on Moore since he was never in running to be our starter here. Garrard was considered the starter before he got hurt and Tannehill elevated over him quickly. Not a sign that this staff thinks that highly of him
lol cant blame him
not gonna happen, matt morre is too good of a backup and tannehill is too good of a starter, so i know matt moore will get a better offer than to to stay here in miami
wow, what a kick in the pants to weeden. so they must be talking backup? I thought the point was to start somewhere. then again, new regime in cleveland.
Apparently they're giving Weeden about half of this season to prove himself or they're looking elsewhere.
cleveland seems to be talking about all qbs
If Miami is offering a decent contract to be a back up, he should stay here. The guy is not a good starter, but a great back up. If he goes elsewhere and tries to start and flops....he could be out of the league because of how it is. If he decides now that he can have a longer career as a back up, he will do well.
Someone will give him a legit chance to compete for a starting spot. He will go. So would any competitive NFL player or almost any of us under the same situation. We would love to have him here as a backup, and if the game of musical chairs doesn't work out and his options are to be a backup somewhere, I'd say we have a good chance to keep him, but it is highly doubtful that nobody lets him compete to be a starter. Moore has been classy andI wish him the best.
Ideally we would have Moore or another good teaching veteran as a backup who also helps Tannehill develop. Unfortunately, those types of veterans don't appear to be on the market this year. The veterans are either looking for a starting spot or not the cerebral mentoring types. So, I think we'll end up going with Devlin as the backup and rely even more heavily on the coaching staff to help both of them progress.
Watch for the Jets to move on him.
for some reason dont see that happening but u never know
Ryan seems blindy loyal to Sanchez, he will be the starter... Moore would be much more effective though.
Since Matt's a FA, it would take two to tango.. can't see him going to a team to compete when the clueless HC has a permanent tattoo of his wife in a Sanchez jersey and where most any other HC would have sat even a decent QB down for a game or two somewhere in the middle of Buttchez's futility tour. Matt's already been through a stacked deck with Sparano and Henne in TC (which IMO, cost us at least a .500 season); can't see him voluntarily putting himself into that kind of situation again, unless they pay him a King$ Ran$som, which they cannot do with their cap circumstances. And I'm glad he'll likely be out of our division as he's a QB with a winning percentage as a starter and has been more successful when under center than the individual teams he's been on when not.
I believe Rex's job is directly tied to Sanchez...no way in hell anyone would be given the chance to compete with the Taco!
The Jets offer the best opportunity to start and they will be making a move at QB. They have to come up with a bridge to the future and Moore is the best available QB to do that.
It's become pretty obvious that Rex had minimal input and that he was stuck with Sanchez. Idzik knows he needs to upgrade at QB which is why Moore, who is already a part of a WCO, makes the most sense. I am sure Rex doesn't want to bet his bleak head coaching future on Sanchez.
Matt Moore has got to know that wherever he goes, the team will probably have, or will soon have a high draft pick rookie pushing him with a F.O. looking to start that rookie sooner than later. No team is just gonna say 'Matt Moore is our franchise QB'. So, knowing that, he might as well stay where he's kinda loved.
