Cleveland Browns: Could Matt Moore Actually Help?

Do you find it sad that the Cleveland Browns start yet another year where the quarterback position is not 100% solidified? Last year’s second first round pick, Brandon Weeden could quite possibly be out of the job already. Because of this we are now talking about veteran three team journeyman Matt Moore.

Will the Browns be signing another former Oregon State University Beaver? Moore, a former Carolina Panther and current Miami Dolphin, has played in 37 games in his five year NFL career. In 2011, the 28 year old threw for 16 touchdowns in 13 games played. That year, he completed 60% of his passes.

Like Weeden, Moore displays a strong arm with more accuracy though. His fluid delivery is quick which helps him get rid of the football. Unlike Weeden, Moore does a much better job leading his receivers and if they are not open, he will throw the ball away. The California native is not afraid to take a hit either.

The weaknesses on Moore is his inability to stay healthy. In his pro career, Moore has had concussions, a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, and a broken left fibula. Although, he got better the last two years, Moore needs to do a much better job of recognizing the blitz. Much like Weeden, Moore needs to not lock on his primary receiver during a play.

In Cleveland, it is certain the fans are in for another training camp QB battle. Moore could push Weeden to play more efficiently. The bottom line is the Browns need to pick a quarterback and stick with him.
