Podcast: Schefter on Flynn, Manning, etc.

Among the points from ESPN's Adam Schefter during his Monday morning appearance on Mike & Mike:
- Alex Smith is waiting on Peyton Manning. Schefter does not think Smith would sign with Miami without knowing whether the San Francisco 49ers remained an option for him.
- Dolphins could have had Matt Flynn. Schefter bases this contention on the relatively modest money Flynn commanded from Seattle. In his view, Flynn was "there for the taking" if the Dolphins valued him highly enough. He thinks Miami had a price limit for Flynn and wasn't interested to the degree the Dolphins were when chasing Jim Harbaugh, Jeff Fisher or Manning.
- No idea on Manning timetable. Schefter wouldn't be surprised if Manning made a decision Monday or several days from now. There is no indication anything is imminent on that front.
