Last year, Matthew Stafford won a Super Bowl in his first season with the Rams, which seemed to boost the trend of quarterbacks changing teams to get better chances at winning it all. Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson were traded this past offseason and hope to replicate Stafford’s success.

If this was a thing 25 years ago, then arguably the best quarterback to never win a Super Bowl might have had a different end to his career. Hall of Famer Dan Marino, who played his entire career with the Dolphins, admitted to USA Today’s Mackenzie Salmon that he considered changing teams late in his career.

“Yes, I definitely thought about it to be honest with you,” Marino said. “I played 17 years for the Dolphins, and they were kind of going in a new direction and a new coach, and I had offers to go play other places and really thought about it, and maybe had a chance to win a championship like Matthew [Stafford] has done.”
