08:45 AM ET 02.05 | The Dolphins' timetable could be tricky, with Peyton Manning expected to be released by March 8, Matt Flynn hitting the open market March 13, and the unknown variable of when Manning's arm will be strong enough to throw as well as he did before his neck injury. If the Dolphins are led to believe by agent Tom Condon that they're a serious contender for Manning when he's released - and that his arm should be strong enough by the start of the season - then they are expected to wait as long as necessary on Manning if he doesn't make a decision quickly. That's because owner Stephen Ross is infatuated with the idea of signing him. The Dolphins believe they have a realistic chance of luring Manning, who owns a condo in South Beach and has an affinity for South Florida.

Lesson to Manning. It's already been proven that 'bringing your talents to South Beach' is no sure path to a championship.

That's why owners shouldn't make player-related personnel decisions.

Chalk up another one for those FN interns, those gatekeepers of all sports knowledge and good journalism practices.

Wow, a QB who may never play and a team that hasn't been relevant for years.

Great job interns, I'm sure there is some jaw-dropping story out there about the St. Louis Rams as well you may want to get on.

Over/Under for time that this website crashes today.

I'll set it at 7:12PM EST.
