Peyton Manning Meets With Miami Dolphins
Peyton Manning on Monday sat down with Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin and other staff members from the organization for talks that lasted between five to six hours.
The meeting took place in Indianapolis and one source described it as a “good meeting” that focused mostly on the same discussions Manning previously held with the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals.
Meeting with Manning was Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. Mike was part of the Texas A&M coaching staff that originally recruited Peyton Manning to play college ball at the university.
Still on the quarterbacks agenda are the Tennessee Titans who are expected to meet with Peyton Manning on Tuesday or Wednesday.
In the meantime Manning continues to rehabilitate his shoulder and neck after undergoing three neck surgeries in the last year including the fusing of two vertebrae. Doctors from the Colts and the NFL have cleared Manning to play and recent reports suggest that the nerves in his arm are repairing themselves, leading to improved velocity for the QBs throwing.
The Dolphins would love to land Manning however they will begin to examine other free agent options when they are made available started on Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. Among the teams possible choices is Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flyn.
Speaking of the upcoming Manning meeting Titans owner Bud Adams told the Tennessean on Sunday:
“I want Manning. I’d love to see him in Titan blue after watching him so many years with the Colts. … I want him. I am ready to do what it takes to get him aboard, and I think he’d be the guy to get us into the playoffs.”
It’s still believed at this time that the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals are at the top of Peyton Manning’s wish list.
What team do you think would benefit most from Peyton Manning’s quarterback leadership.
