Matt Moore to be targeted by New York Jets?

INDIANAPOLIS -- If quarterback Matt Moore's days with the Miami Dolphins are over, Ryan Tannehill's backup is certain to draw interest in free agency.

Ben Volin of The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday that Moore could be in line for a two- or three-year contract worth roughly $5 million per season.

Moore -- in a perfect world -- wants to sign with a team facing a shaky quarterback situation, according to Volin. Moore also would like to get closer to his home in Southern California. Volin ruled out cold-weather teams such as the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills but cited the New York Jets as a dark-horse candidate for Moore's services.

It's clear the Jets need help at quarterback, and Moore -- with a 13-12 career record as a starter -- comes equipped with knowledge of the AFC East.

The Minnesota Vikings reportedly are an option, but a league source told Volin the Arizona Cardinals remain an unlikely landing spot for Moore because new coach Bruce Arians might target Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Drew Stanton.

One final possibility? The Dolphins.

General manager Jeff Ireland, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and Tannehill have been on the phone with Moore in recent days urging him to re-sign with the Dolphins. It remains an option if Moore doesn't fall in love with another potential landing spot.
