Reflecting on training camp travels
Thinking about the Broncos’ backup situation: The Broncos have the quarterback of the present in Peyton Manning and the quarterback of the future in Brock Osweiler. The current backup is Caleb Hanie. From watching practice, you get the idea that Osweiler, though listed No. 3, might end up beating out Hanie for the backup job. That might be a big gamble to have him as a backup. I could see the Broncos signing Matt Moore if he’s cut by the Dolphins. Moore has a good background with Broncos coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy from their days in Carolina. There is a good chance David Garrard will beat out Moore, which puts the Dolphins in a position to decide if they want Moore or Ryan Tannehill as their backup.
Matt Moore is frustrated in Miami. John Fox and Mike McCoy once coached Moore. And Brock Osweiler may end up beating out Caleb Hanie. Are these three connections enough to think the Broncos would sign Moore in favor of Hanie?
It probably depends on your view of Matt Moore. Moore's career rating is 80.1 in 35 appearances compared to Hanie's 61.7 in 11 appearances--if you're into the numbers.
