Would Dan Marino to Dolphins work?

By James Walker

The Miami Dolphins have been a team in turmoil for the past several months. Whether it was because of a late-season collapse, firings of coaches and a general manager or the infamous bullying scandal, Miami has stayed in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

That is partially the reason there is some momentum to bring Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino into the fold. Marino is available after being let go by CBS, and the Dolphins could use some good publicity.

But would Marino to the Dolphins work? Let’s examine the pros and cons.
It seems unlikely the Dolphins would hire Marino at this stage in a prominent role. That would be disruptive to Miami’s current setup under Philbin and Hickey. A figurehead role may not be enough to satisfy Marino. The timing may not be right.
