Well, you can cross Matt Moore off the Jets' wish list. 

The Dolphins quarterback, who has frequently been mentioned as a potential target of the Jets in free agency, is staying in Miami. According to's Jeff Darlington, Moore has re-signed with the Dolphins just days before the start of the free agency signing period. 

The Jets may now re-start talks with David Garrard, who had visited with the team last weekend. Garrard was interested in re-signing with Miami, but Moore's re-signing likely means the Dolphins aren't an option.
