Dolphins re-sign backup QB Matt Moore

The Miami Dolphins announced on Friday that they have re-signed quarterback Matt Moore.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but it’s believed to be a one-year deal.

Moore has spent the past three seasons serving as Ryan Tannehill’s backup, playing in just five games, and completing 18 of 29 passes. But he’s viewed as one of the NFL’s better backup quarterbacks based on the 2011 season he had in Miami.

That season Moore replaced Chad Henne and led the team to six victories after a disastrous 0-7 start. He completed 60.5 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,497 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Moore, who has started 25 NFL games in his eight seasons, has a career passer rating of 79.2.

Inking Moore means the Dolphins will not be signing Tarvaris Jackson, who they brought in for a visit on Thursday. They also won’t have to use one of the team’s few draft picks to select a backup quarterback.
