Matt Moore back with Dolphins

Posted by Chris Brown on March 8, 2013 – 8:47 am

He was one of the few free agent quarterbacks that was being considered by other NFL clubs, but Matt Moore won’t make it to the free agent market.

NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington is reporting that Moore has re-signed with Miami. The deal comes just hours after WR Brian Hartline re-signed with the Dolphins for a reported 5 years and $31M.

Report: Hartline close to re-signing w/Miami

Posted by Chris Brown on March 5, 2013 – 11:59 am

The Dolphins certainly have the cap room to spend, so even though they want a true number one receiver they’re working hard to re-sign the wideout that served as their number one in 2012, even though he’s a better fit as a number two.

According to FOXSports.com, Brian Hartline is close to re-signing with the Dolphins. Hartline had his first 1,000-yard receiving season last year and was a valuable target for then rookie QB Ryan Tannehill.

Per the report Hartline is expected to land a deal in the neighborhood of $6-$6.5M per season.

The Bills need to add a proven outside receiving threat to allow top wideout Stevie Johnson to move into the slot where GM Buddy Nix has said they feel Johnson could be even more productive.

WR Bess out for Miami, Hartline questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on December 21, 2012 – 1:13 pm

The Dolphins will be down an important receiver on Sunday as slot receiver Davone Bess is out with a back injury.

Bess did not practice at all this week and will not dress for the Dolphins game against the Bills. He is second in receptions and receiving yards for Miami this season.

Meanwhile leading receiver Brian Hartline is questionable for Sunday’s game with a back injury as well. Hartline was limited in practice Friday after he failed to practice Thursday.

If Hartline can’t play Sunday it would leave Miami’s receiving corps extremely inexperienced, with Marlon Moore, Armon Binns and Rishaw Matthews as the only healthy wideouts. Binns just signed with the Dolphins a few weeks ago and Matthews and Moore have just six receptions each for Miami this season.

Dolphins WRs still hobbled

Posted by Chris Brown on December 20, 2012 – 5:34 pm

Dolphins leading receiver Brian Hartline was limited in practice Wednesday with a back problem, but he wasn’t able to practice Thursday joining fellow receiver Davone Bess, Miami’s number two wideout.

Bess is also dealing with a back injury and did not practice for a second straight day Thursday. If neither are able to play the Dolphins would be going with Marlon Moore and Armon Binns. Binns has appeared in just one game for the Dolphins this season while Moore has just six catches and a touchdown in 12 games for Miami this season.

Here’s the rest of Miam’s injury report.

WR Davone Bess – back
