The Miami Dolphins have been in pursuit of a free agent quarterback during the 2012 NFL offseason. With lots of interest in Peyton Manning, the Dolphins moved on to Matt Flynn, but now have also brought in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith for a visit, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Here's an interesting way to start your Sunday morning: 49ers free-agent QB Alex Smith is visiting today with the Miami Dolphins.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 18, 2012

Smith, a former No. 1 overall draft pick, is coming off the best season of his career throwing for over 3,000 yards with 17 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions.
