Marino talked with KDKA about how he was excited to see his fellow quarterbacks. He also talked about Jim Kelly’s battle with cancer and what it was like to see him at his golf tournament. “It was an emotional weekend for him and all the people up there that come to his tournament because he missed last year’s tournament because of his health.”

Marino also spoke about Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. “I think he’s excellent. When you take a look at his career, coming in as a young player, they had a pretty good football team when he was young. He won a couple Super Bowls, and the way he was able to continue to develop over time. He is one of the best players at that position.”
