Free Agent quarterback Matt Moore wants to return to Dolphins, but at market value

matt moore hometown discount?Free Agent quarterbacks have been receiving decent money considering Tyrod Taylor can earn up to 7 million dollars if he starts in Buffalo.  Well Matt Moore is a guy that would love to return to the Miami Dolphins, but the problem is he will not give a huge hometown discount.  According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Moore is not expected to give the Dolphins a discount, he is looking for a fair market value contract. 

Moore, a free agent for a week now, hopes to return to the Dolphins, according to an associate, but only at fair market value. Translation: Don’t expect him to give the Dolphins a huge hometown discount.

Miami, with more than $16 million in cap space after last week’s dizzying moves, can afford Moore. The market for a quality veteran backup starts at $4 million a year, and given Stephen Ross’ instructions for the Dolphins to win now, the Dolphins might be inclined to give him such a contract.

This makes sense for the Dolphins, but they are too busy worrying what the Bills next move is with Charles Clay that they are waiting.  What do you think? Should they sign Moore already?
