You HAVE to be basing this on Moore's last preseason outing and that's just ridiculous. Everyone and their stepchild knows Moore is a gamer. Look at the Jests game this year when Moore made them his b*tch. Everytime he's called upon he has been money. Best backup in the league and might I mention very supportive of our young, developing starter.I see little difference between Moore and Devlin, except age and $$$$. Keep Devlin. But let Moore go, dont trade him. He deserves to pick his next team with the loyalty he showed the Phins.
I don't understand anyone wanting to keep 6 WR's. Wallace, Hartline, and Gibson are signed to long term deals, and Matthews is clearly the #4. The #5 WR will likely be targeted around 20-30 times for the year. The #6 guy would be lucky to see the field, and these WR's are nothing special on special teams.Well we are kind of locked in at 3 qbs, the only position i could see being trimmed would be TE to make room for the 6th wideout. Sims, egnew, clay, Fernandez. Clay and Fernandez can play both FB and TE so there's definitely a difficult decision there. Is it too early to cut ties with Egnew?

Whatever we do we gotta keep 6 wideouts. Cut back at RB? TE? OLine?
As much as I don't like losing on of these guys I would have to agree. A hard decision has to be made between Tyms, Bumphis, and McNutt. I think it will be McNutt based on opportunities given/opportunities taken advantage of. He has stepped up when called upon more than the other two. However, I personally would take Tyms because of the upside and I think he has the right attitude/hunger to continue improving and developing.I don't understand anyone wanting to keep 6 WR's.

Spending a roster spot on a #6 WR will not happen. It makes no sense.
I mean either way the 53rd man will probably be inactive all season, so why not have a QB fill that void. QB is the one position on the football team where you can instantly go from solid depth to no depth in one play. I've heard people say, "If Tannehill goes down the season is over anyways" . . . what if we are 8-4 and it happens in the 13th game . . . . should we just fold the tent or ride with Matt Moore and have a guy in Devlin who knows the offense backing him up in case something happens. Last thing I want is Miami picking up John Beck because we decided to dump Pat Devlin because we needed to keep a 7th LB who was inactive all year.If the cuts come down to devlin or a player that can contribute this year, i will take the player that can impact the season vs a qb that will probably never ever step on the field in a real game for us.
I don;t believe it does with a proven comidity like Moore. Devlin vs Corp, absolutely it matters a great deal but Devlin vs Moore:If Matt Moore had thrown 10 interceptions in practice and gone 0-25 in preseason, he wouldn't even be in the NFL right now. Preseason is where players earn a chance to play in the regular season. So yes, it matters.
