Free Agent Quarterback
Before Dolphins fans commit hari kari after the team lost out on Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn; the team may try to redeem itself by signing a former Urban Meyer quarterback.
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.
The seemingly never-ending saga that is Peyton Manning’s free agency took another turn Wednesday night, but it wasn’t a turn that looks to favor the Miami Dolphins.
As Miami Dolphins fans begin to dream about number 18 throwing touchdown passes for the Fins, the competition to land Peyton Manning will be fierce among several teams.
While Peyton Manning’s new contract will be incentive-laden, there could be a secondary player who would come with Manning. For the Dolphins, this player could be a familiar face to Miami Hurricanes fans.
Ask anyone who’s watched the Miami Dolphins for the last 12 years what they want most and almost all of them will say a solid, long-term quarterback. Unrestricted free agency should start this week, and there are some quarterbacks the Dolphins might be interested in.
