Free agent QB Matt Moore: ‘I’m just going to keep working’
Matt Moore, the free agent quarterback who spent four years with the Cleveland Browns before signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, is hoping to bounce back and help his team win a playoff game.
Speaking on a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Moore said that he’s “hoping” he’ll be back with the Eagles this season.
“I’m going to try to be back in Philadelphia and try to win a Super Bowl,” Moore said.
“I’ve been waiting to see how I would have done this year.
This is where I’m at right now and this is where the guys want me to be.””
This is what I do best.
This is where I’m at right now and this is where the guys want me to be.”
Moore has played in 13 games for the Eagles, posting a passer rating of 122.5, and threw for 3,717 yards with 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
He also added another 14 touchdowns and six interceptions in a rookie season in 2015.
He was a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, and was named the NFC Offensive Rookie of the Week for his performance in a game against the Baltimore Ravens in September.
Moore has never had a losing season, winning nine games in a row from 2009-2014.
He led the league with 5,917 passing yards in 2015, but lost in the wild-card round of the playoffs to the New York Giants.
He is the first quarterback since Johnny Unitas in 1989 to win Super Bowl rings.
The Philadelphia Eagles will try to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
The team lost for the third time in the last four years and is 0-4 since the end of November.
The Eagles’ season is now officially over.
