The Splash Zone 1/24/18: Dolphins Looking To Replace Matt Moore

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are going quarterback shopping this offseason and it’s not to replace Ryan Tannehill, but to replace long time backup Matt Moore.

Moore is a little disappointed he was passed over for Jay Cutler, but when given the chance to start in 2017, Moore did not produce. Everyone has been speculating that the Dolphins should take a quarterback in the first round. I’m not a huge fan of that route but there seems to be a ton of fan support for the team to take a QB.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
