More details on Dan Marino joining in on the concussion-related lawsuit against the NFL below, but first check out this video.
As a longtime Dolphins fan, I have always admired the early 1990s Buffalo Bills for getting to the Super Bowl (and losing) four years in a row. I especially admired Bills QB Jim Kelly, out of the University of Miami.
Nowadays, Kelly is fighting cancer and his rival from those times Marino stopped by the hospital to visit his old friend.
Here's the Associated Press (Copyright) story regarding Dan Marino's signing up to sue the NFL:
Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is among the latest group of football players to file a concussion-related lawsuit against the National Football League.
The 52-year-old former Miami Dolphins quarterback is one of 15 former players who filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia last week.
Marino and the other 14 plaintiffs join more than 4,800 others who have alleged the NFL misled players about the long-term dangers of concussions. The NFL has denied those claims.
The lawsuit doesn't specify any medical problems suffered by the plaintiffs including Marino, who retired in 1999. It seeks unspecified damages and medical monitoring.
The NFL and the original group of players agreed on a $765 million settlement last August. But the settlement was rejected by a federal judge in January.
