Dolphins | Marino Talks about His Chances in 2000

At a press conference Thursday to discuss his Hall of Fame induction, July 21 former Miami Dolphins QB Dan Marino discussed the fact he could have signed with the Minnesota Vikings or Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2000 season. "Yeah, I had a chance to go to Pittsburgh, too. I could have gone there. I don't think anybody knew that, but I could have gone to Pittsburgh and a few other places. Minnesota was the one that everyone was harping on at the time and I probably could have played. 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. Sometimes you have to go by instincts and your emotions. That's why I probably didn't do it. I probably could have played another year, no doubt."
