If the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins are engaged in a high-stakes game of quarterback poker, the Dolphins may have just called the Broncos' bluff.  According to The Oregonian, the Dolphins will sign free agent quarterback Matt Moore to a 2-year contract.

The deal will reportedly be worth $5 million with incentives that could push it to $7.5 million.

Where that leaves trade negotiations with the Broncos regarding Kyle Orton?  Well, they may not be dead, but they are on serious life support.

The teams were reportedly close to a deal for Orton on Wednesday, but talks stalled - depending on who you believe - due to compensation between the Broncos and Dolphins or compensation between the Dolphins and Orton.  Personally, I believe it was the latter, based on the deal the 'Fins gave Moore.  Orton wanted something much closer to the deal Kevin Kolb received in Arizona($21 million guaranteed) than what Moore will receive and the Dolphins simply don't want to go there.

That leaves us right back to where we were when the off-season started.  Kyle Orton is likely the starting quarterback with Tim Tebow waiting in the wings.  Where it goes from here is anyone's guess.
