“Peyton Manning is a excellent player,” James stated. “No matter what occurred this past year, his resume speaks for itself and it would be fantastic to have him down here.”
James’ superstar partner Dwyane Wade, whose lobbying brought NBA totally free agents James and Chris Bosh to Miami in 2010, took to Twitter to express his feelings, writing: “I’m just gonna place it out thr..peyton that quantity 18 wld look gr8 in a dolphins uniform..steve ross let’s go.. marlins & heat style..All in.”
