While on Adam Schefter's podcast, Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman said he nearly came out of retirement in 2003 to join the Miami Dolphins...
quote:

“I had a chance initially, and I was gonna do it quite honestly,” he said. "I was gonna come back and the Dolphins were looking at me.

Dave Wannstedt was the head coach. Norv Turner was the offensive coordinator. I had trained that offseason, prepared to come back and play. And they felt like they were a quarterback away from achieving what they wanted to do.”

"It was a great thing from my perspective because they weren’t a quarterback away," Aikman said. "They were not very good. It all worked out just fine.”

Boy, does that headline ever take the reader on a journey, given the rumors about Aikman’s sexuality.

If they signed Aikman…the dolphins still would have been more than a QB away.

Aikman would have been a below average qb without the star studded Cowboys with that monster OL.
