Following Monday's practice, head coach Joe Philbin was asked whether or not backup quarterback Matt Moore would indeed be the backup quarterback for the 2014 season. When Philbin said it was too early to tell, it set off a firestorm of speculation.
According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, Moore is safe for now — and third-stringer Pat Devlin is in real trouble. If the team signs a quarterback and he plays well in practice and the preseason, then Moore could possibly be cut before the season starts. Releasing Moore would save the Dolphins $4 million that they could use this season or carry it over into 2015.
This is a situation to definitely keep an eye on in the coming days and weeks, especially after the Dolphins worked out Rex Grossman, John Skelton and Brady Quinn today.
