Get used to it.
Until quarterback Peyton Manning, perhaps the biggest-name free agent since Reggie White (or ever), signs with a new team, his whereabouts will be scrutinized more closely than Lindsay Lohan’s.
According to NBC Miami, Manning is in Miami. A flight carrying Manning landed at Opa-Locka Executive Airport, and he then got into a van. (We’ve yet to determine whether Brad Childress was driving.)
Manning’s presence in Mami doesn’t mean he’s there to visit with the Dolphins. As so many Dolphins fans point out, Manning has a house there. (Hell, he’s rich enough to have a house in every NFL city.)
But the South Florida frenzy that already has emerged regarding Manning won’t be going anywhere until Manning makes his decision. And until proven otherwise, I’ll continue to believe that Manning will, like Jim Harbaugh and Jeff Fisher before him, know that the key to getting the best offer elsewhere will be to get Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to open his wallet as wide as it will go.
