Dolphins would have interest in healthy Manning
The Miami Dolphins would be interested in Peyton Manning if he is healthy and becomes an unrestricted free agent if the Indianapolis Colts decline his $28 million roster bonus in March.
Well, duh, you say. Nearly every team in the free world would entertain the idea of having a healthy Peyton Manning on its roster. But the Miami Herald says the Dolphins would be serious players in the bidding for the 36-year-old quarterback, provided he can play somewhere near his old form and with minimal risk of re-injuring his neck. Serious enough interest that he would be their priority in the off-season.
The report says an available Manning would trump Green Bay backup Matt Flynn, who had been regarded as a possibility for the Dolphins since Joe Philbin is coming from the Packers to be head coach in Miami. Thus far, the scuttlebutt on Flynn has been lukewarm at best on South Beach.
