Matt Moore has been with the Miami Dolphins since 2011 and he is happy to remain with the team for at least one more year. Speaking to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald on Monday afternoon, Moore said that although he views himself as a starting quarterback, he's content with his current situation as a backup quarterback.
“I view myself as someone, yeah, who always can compete and play and win in this league. I think if you view yourself as anything less, it’s a disservice to yourself. Just because I signed back with Miami, obviously with Ryan [Tannehill] being the guy, it doesn’t make me see myself in a different light. I believe in myself and I believe that I can play. The way everything worked out, it puts me in the position that I’m in and I’m fired up about it and I’m happy about it.”
For the 2015 season, Moore will make $2.7 million dollars, which is obviously less than the $4 million dollars he has made the past two seasons. Moore said he had interest from multiple teams but after talking it over with his wife, they decided their best move would be to stay in Miami. Part of this is because he believes in the plan that has been put in place.
“I think management knows what they’re doing, there is a plan,” Moore told Beasley. “You’ve got to, I think as a player and as part of an organization, you’ve got to respect and move forward in a positive way with the decisions that have been made. They’ve done some work to get other guys in the building that are talented and are going to help us win, and that’s all you can ask for.”
