The Miami Dolphins have had numerous quarterbacks in recent years. Unfortunately for them, they are in need of another quarterback.
The Dolphins have been rumored to have interest in free agent Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn. But there are talks the Dolphins will have interest in soon-to-be-released Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.
Almost all the team’s in the league will have interest in Manning. That’s of course, if they do not already have a franchise signal-caller.
After being released by the Colts, he will have to prove to a variety of teams that he’s a 100% healthy. However, there will be no verification before the start of free agency on March 13 that he will be a 100%.
If signed, Manning would be the best quarterback for the Dolphins since Dan Marino retired. Time will tell if he signs with the Dolphins.
But if they go in a different direction, Flynn would be the target.
Flynn has spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers, where he has played the past four seasons. He is 1-1 in two starts. Yet, he has appeared in 34 games.
This past season, he went 33 of 49 for 518 passing yards. He also had six touchdowns and two interceptions.
Manning, on the other hand, missed the entire 2011 season after having neck surgery. Despite his injury, he’s going to be one of the best quarterback options on the open market.
In 13 seasons with the Colts, he has made 208 starts and went 141-67 as a starter. He’s gone 4,682 of 7,210 for 54,828 passing yards. He also has 399 touchdowns and 198 interceptions.
