Two quarterbacks are on the move Monday as trading season in the National Football League is well underway.
The once-proud Miami Dolphins franchise is in shambles after another high-profile swing and miss. The Dolphins first tried to acquire quarterback Peyton Manning, but missed. Now, free agent Matt Flynn has also told the Fins, thanks, but no thanks.
Just a few days after being told by Peyton Manning, “thanks, but no thanks,” the Miami Dolphins will welcome free agent quarterback Matt Flynn to the team’s facility Saturday and hope to convince him to sign before he leaves Miami.
Now that Peyton Manning is out of the picture; Matt Flynn seems to be the target of the Miami Dolphins’ quarterback desires. But even the chase of a former seventh-round draft pick seems to be blowing up in Miami’s face.
The Miami Dolphins are officially out of the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, according to NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington.
As Peyton Manning looks more and more like he’s not going to pick the Miami Dolphins, it’s beginning to finally dawn on many Fins fans that the team is not in win-now mode, but rather entering another rebuilding phase.
As the possibility of signing Peyton Manning continue to dwindle for the Miami Dolphins, some attention is starting to turn towards free agent quarterback Matt Flynn.
The Miami Dolphins got their chance to make a pitch to free agent quarterback Peyton Manning Monday night over six hours of talks with coach Joe Philbin and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.
Peyton Manning hasn’t even been set free by the Indianapolis Colts, but that’s not stopping some enterprising Miami Dolphins fans from making a very public plea.
