If Wade recruits another sports stud down to Miami, we’re going to have to make a few calls to our military, and see if they have any open recruiter spots. I’m not sure if Peyton Manning wants to go to the Dolphins, but it can’t hurt to have Wade and LeBron trying to get ya to South Beach.
Wade was on his tweeting grind first with:
I’m just gonna put it out thr..peyton that number 18 wld look gr8 in a dolphins uniform..steve ross let’s go.. marlins & heat style..All in

For those of you that don’t know Steve Ross, he is the Owner of the Miami Dolphins. The Fish are one of many teams Manning has already been linked to.
LeBron later followed up with his pitch to get Peyton Manning to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
“Oh, you guys heard me?” he said with a smile. “I gave my pitch, my one and only pitch. We’ll see what happens.”
When asked if the two were friends LeBron offered this up:
“No, not a friend of mine,” LeBron said. “But I’m a Miami Heat player, and I want Miami sports to be great: The U, the Dolphins, the Marlins, the Heat, of course.”
Call me crazy, but I really can’t see Peyton Manning hitting up the South Beach scene with Wade and ‘Bron. Despite winning a Super Bowl, it’s probably not the best idea that Manning and LeBron hang out together. LeBron doesn’t need any more bad karma, and Peyton isn’t exactly what anyone would call clutch in the playoffs. I have been wrong before though.
