MIAMI – As training camp begins, it's clear the Miami Dolphins need to work on their timing.
As quarterback Chad Henne spoke to reporters after the first practice Friday, he mentioned that the team had reached a contract agreement with free-agent quarterback Matt Moore. The only problem: The Dolphins had not confirmed the deal, first reported by the Oregonian.
A team executive winced as Henne spilled the beans about the addition of Moore and said he's ready for the competition to start. The deal likely takes the Dolphins out of the market for Denver quarterback Kyle Orton, who has been the subject of trade talks.
Moore started 13 games for the Carolina Panthers from 2007 to 2010. Last year he threw five touchdown passes and had 10 interceptions.
