Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne Would Be Wise to Take Their Talents to Miami
After SI.com's Peter King reported that soon-to-be free agents Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne would like to continue playing together, everyone seems to be connecting dots to which destination would be best for the former All-Pros.
As things stand right now, the Miami Dolphins have the most to offer Manning and Wayne.
After an 0-7 start to the season, the Dolphins got things together and finished strong, winning six of their final nine games. They displayed a strong running game led by Reggie Bush, who had a breakout season during his first year in South Beach. Miami also has young running back Daniel Thomas, who should provide a solid second set of legs in the backfield.
At receiver, the Dolphins have the enigmatic Brandon Marshall, who is supremely talented and has the potential to be one of the NFL's best receivers when he is focused. Adding Wayne to the mix would likely shift Davone Bess to the slot permanently, which is where he operates the best. That would push Brian Hartline into reserve duty, which is likely where he belongs anyway.
Manning would have four-time Pro Bowler Jake Long protecting his blind side, while Miami could use the No. 8 overall pick in this year's draft to add another offensive lineman like Iowa tackle Riley Reiff or Stanford guard David DeCastro.
If Manning is fully healthy by the time the 2012 season kicks off, a roster like the one listed above would make the Dolphins an incredibly dangerous team. In fact, I can't think of a better situation for the two soon-to-be former Colts to walk into.
There have been a lot of rumors connecting Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn to Miami because of his relationship with new head coach (and former Packers offensive coordinator) Joe Philbin.
While that scenario would make a lot of sense, a pairing of Manning and Wayne on the Dolphins could be the best long-term scenario for everyone involved.
