'No one' wants to play for Dolphins


Peyton Manning informed the Miami Dolphins he wouldn't be playing for them last week.

Fellow free agent QB Matt Flynn visited the team -- and new HC Joe Philbin, his former offensive coordinator in Green Bay -- but opted to sign with the Seattle Seahawks instead.

HC Jim Harbaugh met with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and GM Jeff Ireland about a year ago while then-Miami HC Tony Sparano was still under contract. But Harbaugh took his next job with the San Francisco 49ers.

Jeff Fisher decided to resume his coaching career with the St. Louis Rams in January over the Fish.

Coincidence or pattern?

One player has weighed in.

Steelers S Ryan Clark congratulated Flynn on his deal with Seattle then did some more tweeting over the weekend when asked why no one is going to Miami:

"No one! To believe I almost went there but it was easy decision not to. ... It's my honest opinion. Not a good guy making decisions ... Done w talk of the Dolphins. Good luck to their team. Their are some good men working hard to win games ON the field. ... After having so much interaction w Phins fans today I am even more excited that I was blessed to stay in Pittsburgh. God knew better than me"

Clark also said he turned down more money from the Dolphins to remain in Pittsburgh. His Twitter reference to "not a good guy" seems to be a veiled shot at Ireland, who was criticized for his flirtation with Harbaugh while Sparano twisted in the wind and was also the target of bad publicity two years ago when he asked WR Dez Bryant during a pre-draft interview if his mother had been a prostitute.
