Peyton Manning is a free agent.  Words many thought we would never hear, but when Indianapolis decided to part ways with their quarterback, he instantly became the hottest free agent available.

There is no question that Miami is going to make a big push to sign him, but up to as many as 12 teams have already expressed interest.

The entrance of Manning into free agency has changed up the Matt Flynn projections a little bit especially when it comes to the Dolphins.  With former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin in Miami, many though this is where the backup Green Bay quarterback would land, but now a spot like Seattle seems more likely.

With Drew Brees being franchise-tagged by New Orleans and Alex Smith likely returning to San Francisco, Kyle Orton and Jason Campbell are arguably the next best two free agents available.  While both of these guys would like starting spots, they will probably be signed as backups or in the position to compete for a starting job at the very most.
