Marino spoke about Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton, and the need to surround Newton with more playmakers, particularly at wide receiver, however, when Marino was asked which quarterback he would choose to start a franchise with, the former Miami Dolphin quarterback mentioned Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, and Aaron Rodgers, not Newton.

Dan Marino played his entire career for the Miami Dolphins and is considered one of the most prolific passing quarterbacks in NFL history. He is nine-time Pro Bowler (1983-87, 1991-92, 1994-95) who played in 18 post-season playoff games and led the Miami Dolphins to the Super Bowl in 1985 against the San Francisco 49ers. Although he never won a Super Bowl, Marino won the Dolphins MVP Award 12 times and the team has since named the award after him. Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 7, 2005.
