As the Miami Dolphins shift their attention to free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, a new suitor for Peyton Manning has emerged. Despite working to re-sign quarterback Alex Smith, the San Francisco 49ers worked out Manning earlier this week. According to an ESPN report, Manning threw passes for 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh at Duke University on Tuesday night.
Manning worked out for the Broncos today, again at Duke University, with team president John Elway tweeting:
Miami, meanwhile, has scheduled a meeting with Flynn for this weekend. Flynn is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks today and tomorrow, before he is believed to be heading to Miami. Seattle could make an effort to sign him before the Miami meeting, however that's thought to be unlikely, given Flynn's relation ship with former Green Bay offensive coordinator, and current Miami head coach, Joe Philbin.
