Dolphins Will Look for Two QB’s This Offseason

The Dolphins are in the market for not one, but two quarterbacks this off-season.

Miami has been linked to Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn, who played for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin and could hit the free agent market on March 13. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has also been linked to the Dolphins, who are also expected to add a young quarterback in the draft, Kelly reports.

Miami has two quarterbacks signed for 2012 — Matt Moore and Pat Devlin — neither of whom are expected to be the team’s long-term answer at the position.

Signed to a two-year deal after spending the previous four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, Moore replaced an injured Chad Henne to start the final 12 games of the season. Overall, the 27-year-old from Oregon State completed 60.5 percent of 347 pass attempts for 2,497 yards with 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Moore is scheduled to earn $2.75 million in base salary.

If Flynn and Manning remain with their current teams orsign elsewhere, Moore could potentially compete with an early round rookie for the starting job in 2012.

Devlin joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware. In two appearances in the preseason, Devlin completed three of five pass attempts for 30 yards, losing two yards on a pair of sacks in his preseason debut. The Dolphins signed Devlin to their practice squad in Week 1 and added him to their active roster for the final two weeks of the season.

Should the Dolphins add a Flynn or Manning, Devlin would likely compete with a late-round rookie for the No. 3 quarterback spot on the roster.
