Doesn't know to who yet, but confirms it's gone down. We will go with David Garrard and Pat Devlin as backups.

Best of luck Matt. I think you're a good qb. You'll do well wherever you go.

David Garrard is going to get cut..........best of luck Matt.

This would make sense with the tweet he sent earlier, as per a seperate post.

I wish him all the best....seems like a class guy on HK; maybe a bit too laid back for QB. I hope this doesn't mean we keep Gerrard.

Not according to Sid. I don't know how accurate his reports are though.

Didn't Sid say that Jeff Fisher was the new coach?

If true, I wish Matt all the best. Pure class, but was clearly a bad fit for our system.

Why on earth would we cut Garrard if we have traded Moore? You want to go into the season with a Rookie QB and Pat Devlin?!

If this is the case, I hope we also release Garrard. Pat Devlin should be the backup, we can find someone else for the practice squad.

I agree. Could it be to Green Bay or Arizona for a receiver?

taking this "going young" far too literal in my opinion. You need a vet qb on roster. Wonder if they look at someone like Jordan Palmer out of Jax's camp if these reports are true. He outperformed Henne, but Henne got 3 mil so he will be staying

Guys, keep dreaming if you think we got a 3rd or 4th for him. My guess is, 5th rounder.

And no, we're not going into the season with Devlin & Tannehill. Clearly Garrard is sticking.

If Miami could actually go somewhere this year, this would be a horrible trade. They aren't, so this isn't. If you're a legit contender, then you really need a quality guy to step up and fill the hole to keep the Ws comin'. I don't think Jesus Christ could keep the Ws coming. Maybe Clint Eastwood could, or the stool.

Don't know much about him. I just know he said it on his show this morning. Also Clyde Gates and Roberto Wallace have been cut.

Good luck man. Talk about a youth movement at QB. Tannehill and Devlin... Wonder if we bring in a vet once Garrard is gone.

At the start of the year I thought we could get a 3rd for him...but the way he played during preseason def brought down his value..I am hoping to get a 5th for him...That would be solid.

So if we release Garrard, wouldn't that give us close to 8 million in cap-space?

I really enjoyed watching Matt Moore lead this team. Without him, I don't think we'd have had any respect or hope at all by the end of 2011. With him, we saw what solid QB leadership and play can do for a team full of underachievers.

Best of luck to you Matt!! :brewskis:

I think we're already there.

We were around $3.5 million before...traded Cook ($1 million salary), traded Vontae ($957,000 salary), traded Moore ($3 million salary). Not sure what the cap hits are for those three though.

Ed Norton

So the guy that was favorite to be the starter, the current number 2, is traded and there are no details of who he was traded to and what he was traded for?

Based on Moores last tweet, I would doubt this story is accurate

I really don't think our preseason is going to influence Matt's value to other teams. What he did last season will.

Sid said he doesn't have the name of the team he was traded to, but it's his "source" within the organization - whatever that means.

Hell, I hope we get a straight up trade for a decent receiver. That's the best value we'll get trading him to another team at this time of year, I think.

Doesn't GB need a Back up QB? And we have been talking to them about James Jones. I know they said Matt is not suited to the WCO, but would make sense from a need perspective.

I'm just sayin...

Really? I dont know. I think they see that he got beat out by a rookie..and before that lost his job to a guy that took a whole year off..granted it was a new system but he didnt elevate the 2nd stringers the way Tannehill did....I would use that as leverage if I was a team calling.

While this is apparently a false alarm, I do expect that they're getting calls about Matt Moore. Brady Quinn just went down in KC and Matt Moore has proved that he can play in Brian Daboll's offense.

That was my first thought as well. I would have a whole new opinion of Ireland if he pulled that off.

Graham Harrell is the back up in GB. A trade to Arizona would make sense for Early Doucet maybe?

As for Matt, I wish him the best. He did one heck of a job for us last year.

Seems hard to understand, unless the upsdie of this is so good that it overshadows the loss of a decent QB.

If traded to KC - they have some interesting WR's that we may take a look at.

Dexter McCluster - Ireland was high on him after we coached him in senior bowl.

Steve Breaston - They paid him but now have Bowe and Baldwin and if they keep McCluster, he is expendable.

Love Matt Moore.. he turned chicken**** into chicken salad last season. Watching Henne on the sidelines and then Matty encouraging his line, his receivers, backslapping, etc, was like night and day.. and made me realize that Henne was the wrong horse to hitch your wagon to.. If this is true, which I am dubious about, I hope it's to AZ cause he will be the preemptive starter that he deserves to be and is as good as Alex Smith and make them more competitive with SF.

All good points, but I don't think GMs around the league have the time to analyze our camps or preseason like we do. Even if they did watch our preseason games closely, I'd hope they know there's really not much constructive you can take away from them when it comes to an individual's likely performance in real games. If a GM tried to use anything in this camp/preseason as leverage on Moore, I'd laugh in his face and say, "nice try."
