Marino almost a Steeler???
 
I heard about this on ESPN radio today.....

Quote:

Marino said he had the chance to continue playing for his hometown team in Pittsburgh after being released by the Dolphins in February 2000 but turned it down.

"[Steelers coach Bill] Cowher called me about playing, but I had to make a decision in a couple of days because he already had a guy he was going to sign," said Marino, who also was courted by Minnesota. "I can't even remember the circumstances. That would have been nice, too. I just kept thinking back at the time how my body felt the year before. For me, there was something special about playing 17 years at one place, and I think that is never going to change. Although I was pretty close to doing it, it just didn't feel right."
I don't remember hearing about this. I think the "guy he was going to sign" was Kent Graham. Hmmm.....Marino or Graham. :huh:

Would it have mattered? He was crippled at that point in his career.

I remember we were talking with him. I would have loved to see him finish out in Pgh. If he played or not the fans would have loved it. Just imagin if he gets in the game,
makes a big play, or throws a touchdown pass, the crowd would have went crazy. Think about how he would have felt, playing for the team he grew up watching and cheering for.
Only a Pittsburgher could understand how I feel about this. That would have been GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
