Just hours after he announced he was parting ways with the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning ended up -- where else -- in South Florida. Manning's arrival was chronicled by shaky, grainy video images of him stepping off a plane. Later, his caravan was followed O.J.-style by hovering helicopters. All this set off speculation that Manning soon would be a Dolphin. But the Dolphins meeting with Manning never happened in South Florida. They were forced to meet him in Indianapolis. Manning signed with Denver and the Dolphins signed David Garrard and drafted Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
