08:09 AM ET 03.07 | In the opinion of many, Peyton Manning will be taking his talents to Miami. Manning, who owns a condo on South Beach, threw to Colts free agent receiver Reggie Wayne in South Florida two weeks ago, and spent much of last week conducting an aggressive throwing session at Duke University, where his former University of Tennessee offensive coordinator, David Cutcliffe, is now the head coach. ... A Manning associate said he believes that if Manning chooses the Dolphins, he would be willing to work with the Dolphins on running the offense he's comfortable with, while also weaving in elements of [Mike Sherman's] West Coast-style offense. The Dolphins have about $15 million in cap space and could prorate a large signing bonus.

Wait, the other thread says he's going to the Jets.
I'm so confused...

I think it's already been proven that South Beach is nothing more than a nice spot for a vacation.

I think those pink wristbands and matching waist towel would look best in Miami.

Accessorizing- THAT'S the key to success in the new NFL.
Just sayin', dude.

Welcome to FanNation where it's all Manning, all the time. If we go two-a-day on Manning threads we can go through all 32 teams in half the time.

It will be interesting to see how effective he will be without a roof over his head.

South Florida is where old people go to retire, so, it makes sense.

There is a nice roof in Dallas. Send Romo off to the PGA.

You know Jerrah will say, "I would take Tony Romo over Payton Manning, ANY DAY!"

The Fish play at least 11 games a season outdoors. On the other hand, in Miami you don't get the winds off the Great Lakes. It's not a bad place for a fair-weather quarterback.

No winter weather at all. Only thing he'll have to worry about is the ocassional thunderstorm in pre-season.

The heat and humidity is always a factor during camp in So FL.

and I would think that would qualify him immediately to be carted off to the nearest psych ward.
