The Dolphins and Moore agreed to a two-year, $3.5 million contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore has logged very few snaps in four seasons as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup, completing 16 of 30 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown versus two interceptions. Expect Moore to serve in a similar capacity during the upcoming deal, barring injury.

Moore only attempted one pass this season as Ryan Tannehill was able to remain upright all season.

EDGE Analysis

Moore is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL. He is likely to either stay in that role with Miami or perhaps sign with a team that could possibly give him the chance to start but in the end will probably return him as insurance in case the starter goes down.

Moore re-signed with the Dolphins on Friday.

Moore has spent the past four seasons in Miami, where he'll continue to serve as the Dolphins' second-string to starter Ryan Tannehill at quarterback this upcoming season.

Moore would like to stay with Miami, according to the Miami Herald.

Moore realizes that he could have an opportunity for more playing time elsewhere but is comfortable with being the backup to Ryan Tannehill as long as the team will pay him the going rate for a top backup quarterback. With Miami still approximately $16 million under the salary cap and the organization in win now mode, a deal is likely to be struck.

Moore hasn't taken any snaps with the first team offense this week, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.

Coach Joe Philbin has made some noise this week about possibly not starting Ryan Tannehill across the pond but if that was true one would have to think that Moore would be getting a few first team snaps. This is more than likely just saber rattling by Philbin.

Moore will be the backup to Ryan Tannehill this season. He was limited a couple of days in practice due to a sore shoulder.

The Dolphins have not approached QB Matt Moore about a pay cut.

Moore is owed $4 million in the final year of his two-year deal. Per the Miami Herald, the Bucs pursued Moore last March. New Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey was in that Tampa Bay front office and may be a fan of the backup quarterback.

Dolphins re-signed QB Matt Moore.

Contract details aren't yet available. The move further dilutes the wafer-thin quarterback market, and is an indication Moore wasn't expecting to draw serious interest as a starter. The deal should make him one of the league's better paid backups, as the Dolphins clearly value his veteran presence behind franchise QB Ryan Tannehill. The "top" of the QB market now consists of Brian Hoyer (RFA), Chase Daniel, Jason Campbell and David Garrard. There's never been a worse time to need a quarterback.

The NFL's Weekend Window for teams to negotiate with player reps begins on Saturday at midnight.

So, Friday night if you'll be burning midnight oil with Rotoworld. (We'll be up all night long, baby.) The window extends until 3:59PM ET on Tuesday, at which point teams can formally sign players. During the Weekend Window, players can not make club-facility visits, and only reps for unrestricted free agents -- not RFAs -- are allowed to negotiate. We don't expect an overwhelming amount of hard news over the weekend, but plenty of buzz should emanate.

Mike Jurecki of XTRA Phoenix is "hearing" the Browns may have interest in free agent Matt Moore.

New Cleveland OC Norv Turner is a known fan of Moore, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer has repeatedly called Moore a stopgap option for the Browns' quarterback position. NFL free agents can commence formal negotiations with teams on March 9, and sign beginning on March 12. Moore is the top free-agent QB available.
