The Miami Dolphins are meeting with free agent quarterback Matt Moore on Tuesday, according to a report from the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. Moore has spent the last five years with the Dolphins, starting 12 games in his first season with Miami, but then assuming the backup role to Ryan Tannehill for the past four seasons. Moore recently met with the Dallas Cowboys, but could now be returning to Miami.

Moore began his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers, spending three seasons there, recording a 7-6 record in 13 starts. He was 6-6 in his starts with the Dolphins.

Moore originally signed a two-year, $5.025 million contract with the Dolphins in 2011. He re-signed with the team in 2013 on a two-year, $8 million contract. Last offseason, Moore tested the free agent market before re-signing with Miami on a one-year, $2.6 million deal.

The Dolphins currently have Tannehill, Logan Thomas, and Zac Dysert on the roster at quarterback. They have met with free agent  Brandon Weeden, but no contract was signed.
