Matt Moore to the Dolphins In a 2-Year Deal

Kyle Orton-to-the-Dolphins has never been so cold.

According to the Oregonian, Miami has agreed to a 2-year deal with former Panther QB Matt Moore. Moore will be 27 this year, and is – at minimum – an intriguing alternative option if Chad Henne continues to struggle.

He leaves Carolina, where Steve Smith as the only established receiving target and his offensive coordinator was fired (Jeff Davidson has taken a job with the Vikings as an offensive line coach).

He joins Miami, where Brian Daboll – who, like Sparano, is from the Parcells tree – calls palys and his weapons are finally-healthy Brandon Marshall, top 5 slot receiver Davone Bess and the statistically-#1 receiving back over the last five years, Reggie Bush.

Moore first showed promise in 2009, when he was 4-1 as a starter while relying mostly on Carolina’s rushing attack.

    Dan Henning retired and there was nothing innovative about his play calling. Healty weapons, I doubt it as Bush was out last year and Marshall was stabbed by his wife. By the way your sentence structure is awful and hard to read.

      I appreciate the correction on Daboll. “Innovative” probably is hyperbole, given that the Wildcat had been used a lot in the past and that Henning couldn’t attack the Ravens defense in the playoffs.
