ESPN's Adam Schefter has some bad news for Miami Dolphins fans, which might be good news for the New York Jets and several other teams. Schefter reports Miami may be losing ground already in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes.
Schefter sites the recent helicopter chase and the way the Dolphins failed at pursuing head coach Jeff Fisher as ominous signs. The Dolphins expect to meet with Manning soon so the future Hall of Fame quarterback can get a feel for the organization. Miami was considered one of the early favorites to land Manning.
It's early, but potentially losing Manning would be a big blow to the Dolphins, who want to make a splash and make football relevant again in South Florida. Plan B for the Miami is to chase former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn in free agency next week.
