The Jets and Seahawks have also done research and had discussions about bringing Manning in, according to club sources.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is convinced his team is a quarterback away from Super Bowl contention, and is intrigued by the star power that Manning could bring in selling the team in South Florida.


While Miami is prepared for a run at Manning, the club is considering all its options at quarterback, and the medical and monetary considerations in this case will be relevant.

The Dolphins have been searching for an answer at quarterback since Dan Marino's retirement in 1999. Chad Henne, the team's starter to open the 2011 season, was ultimately released after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in October. Henne's replacement, Matt Moore, is still under contract with the team.
