Just one week after being tendered by the Carolina Panthers, restricted free agent Matt Moore will accept the team's one-year, $3.043 million qualifying offer.
The four-year veteran who made under $500,000 last season, is expected to sign the deal either today or tomorrow, according to The Oregonian newspaper.
Moore took over as the starter late in 2009 for Delhomme, who was sidelined with a knuckle injury.
As a starter, Moore threw eight touchdowns, one interception and passed for just under 1,000 yards-leading the Panthers to an 8-8 record and a third-place finish in the NFC South.
The Panthers will bring in at least one more quarterback—either through free agency or the draft—to compete with Moore and second-year man Hunter Cantwell for the job.
