Matt Moore Reportedly Agrees To Deal With Dolphins; Is Kyle Orton Staying In Denver?

It appears that the Miami Dolphins have moved on from Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton. According to OregonLive.com, the Dolphins have agreed to a two-year contract with former Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore. The deal is reportedly worth $5 million with incentives to reach $7.5 million.

Kyle Orton was reportedly negotiating a contract with the Dolphins, but he was likely looking for a deal that was commensurate with what he was set to receive in 2011: nearly $9 million. The Dolphins, it seems, wanted no part of that and preferred Orton taking a lesser deal.

So now Kyle Orton is the starting quarterback for the Broncos and Tim Tebow is the backup. Brady Quinn, as usual, remains the No. 3 QB. Will John Fox develop his own Tebow Package to get the youngster some time on the field?

Training camp is just underway, so there are plenty of developing story lines in this situation.
