Report: Dolphins Still Believe They Are In Running For Peyton Manning

Monday March 12th, 2012

The Miami Dolphins still believe they are in the running to sign free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

It has been reported by numerous outlets that Manning, who was made a free-agent last week after the Indianapolis Colts made the difficult decision to release him, had narrowed his team choices down to the Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos. Initially the Dolphins were considered a potential top candidate, but the 35-year-old has yet tour the Miami facilities and is reportedly done visiting teams.

Manning reportedly met with the Denver Broncos last week and also with the Arizona Cardinals this weekend. It is believed he will make a decision on which team to continue his career with by the end of this week. Over the course of his career Manning has compiled 54,828 passing yards and 399 touchdowns. He was the number one overall pick by the Colts in 1998, and has been a four-time NFL MVP. In 2006, he led the Colts to a Super Bowl Championship, where he was named Most Valuable Player.
