The last time a number one overall draft pick quarterback was making his way around Miami, the local television stations went into full fledged Peyton Manning overload coverage.
When the clock strikes 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, 32 NFL teams will open up their checkbooks for the start of unrestricted free agency. The annual spending fest will be tempered to a degree as teams wait on one man to make a decision, Peyton Manning.
Mannageddon has officially taken hold of nearly every NFL city that could possibly need a quarterback. Miami has long been considered one of the top spots for Manning to land, but a new team powered by a retired Hall of Famer may be trying to make a big push.
One of Peyton Manning’s favorite all-time receivers envisioned Manning joining the Dolphins. And Reggie Wayne hoped he could rejoin his former teammate, adding that would be a “story book” ending to their careers.
Depending on who you want to believe, free agent quarterback Peyton Manning could land with any number of teams, or he could end up watching another season from his couch.
