Dolphins Fans Lobby for Team to Get Manning
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins fans want the team to acquire Peyton Manning, and they're using a billboard and website to campaign.

The manningtomiami.com site is advertised on a billboard along an Interstate near the Dolphins' complex. Under an image of Manning about to throw a pass in a Dolphins uniform, the sign reads ''MANNING TO MIAMI.com.''

The website encourages fans to fill out a form urging the Dolphins to bring Manning to Miami. A list of those supporting the campaign will be given to the Dolphins and Manning's advisers, the site says.

Manning has spent the past five months recovering from his third neck surgery in less than two years, and it's unclear whether he'll remain with the Indianapolis Colts.
