Good news for Miami fans.
The Miami Dolphins have signed Dan Marino all over again.
And if that isn’t enough, the Dolphins signed Bob Griese. And Larry Little. And Nat Moore and Kim Bokamper and Sam Madison.
The Dolphins re-signed six of their former icons, in fact, who promptly retired as Dolphins. They did it, they said, to emphasize the bond between the organization and the team’s alumni. The six combined for 25 Pro Bowls, three Hall of Fame selections and two MVPs.
The team did not explain why it didn’t re-sign and retire Larry Csonka, Mercury Morris, Mark Duper, Mark Clayton, Nick Buoniconti, JackeScott or A.J. Duhe, among others.
“I’m enthusiastic about being a part of this team and trying to help create something special,” Marino said. “I love being a Miami Dolphins even if it’s for one more day. I’m proud to be a part of the franchise.”
Marino joked that he had been a free agent for 16 years and no team had called.
