The Dolphins have found their new QB. WELCOME TO SOUTH BEACH KYLE ORTON. UMM WAIT A SECOND!!!
No the Dolphins didnt trade for Kyle Orton. Instead they have signed UFA QB Matt Moore from Carolina to a two-year deal worth $5 million! http://www.oregonlive.com/nfl/index.ssf/2011/07/quarterback_matt_moore_to_sign.html
Right away I am obviously upset by this, and dont think that Matt Moore is the solution. Moore MIGHT bring competition for Henne, but personally I dont see it. I am going to have to go over more tape on Moore to fully decide how I feel about this but at the moment Jeff Ireland is making me a very upset man. Did the Dolphins upgrade at backup QB? Probably, but they needed to upgrade their starting QB.
Earlier this morning Steve Ross said that “Tony (Sparano) is a great guy. The players like him. But he’s got to win this season” I don’t see any reason to think that this is CURRENTLY a playoff team. That being said, its Henne time and I am very open to him proving me wrong
Side Note : @adbrandt tweeted: Kyle Orton’s $1.5 million roster bonus activated at 4pm et. Broncos unlikely to trade after making that commitment
@JeffDarlington Sources: The Dolphins have come to a contract agreement with RB Daniel Thomas, the team’s second-round draft pick. He’ll sign shortly.
Sheets and Hilliard are both exclusive rights FA and not on the roster or practice field today
Also here is a picture of Henne and our new toy in Miami
