MIAMI (AP) — Hart High School graduate and current NFL quarterback Matt Moore has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Miami Dolphins as a backup rather than testing free agency next week and pursuing a possible starting job.

Moore was beaten out for Miami’s No. 1 job last summer, his second season with the Dolphins, by rookie Ryan Tannehill and played in only two games off the bench. The five-year veteran started 12 games for the Dolphins in 2011 and had his best season, throwing for 2,497 yards and 16 touchdowns with nine interceptions.

The quarterback previous play parts of three season with the Carolina Panthers.

The 29-year-old Moore would have been eligible for free agency on March 12.

Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed when it was announced Friday. Miami also signed receiver Brian Hartline to a five-year deal Friday for nearly $31 million.
