Unhappy Aikman rumored to be considering return

Fiedler shrugs off reports of Dolphins' interest in Aikman

http://www.sportsline.com/u/ce/multi...533_59,00.html
DAVIE, Fla. - Jay Fiedler, who has played for two years in the shadow of Dan Marino's legacy, now must endure comparisons with another likely Hall of Famer: Troy Aikman.

The Miami Dolphins' offseason commenced with a quarterback controversy Monday, thanks to broadcast reports that Aikman might come out of retirement and join the team.

Coach Dave Wannstedt said he wants Fiedler back and denied that the Dolphins have talked to Aikman. But Wannstedt, who was defensive coordinator in Dallas during Aikman's prime, declined to say whether Miami would be interested in him if he wants to play next season.

Aikman, 35, led the Dallas Cowboys to three Super Bowl titles in a 12 seasons before retiring last April. Ten concussions and problems with his back contributed to his decision, and on Jan. 6 he said it was "extremely doubtful" he would play next season.
Interesting... at 35, it wouldn't be totally unheard of for a QB to be playing, but I think it's pushing it. Why risk your health like this? He was a great player, but his days are over with. There is a time when you just must let it go. I feel Aikman must do this, as Steve Young did. Thoughts?

Thats absolutely right Lee.

Its not our job to decide if an athlete should come back...its theirs. If they want to play for a team, and a team wants that person to play for them, then who are we to stop them?

What compensation (draft choices etc.), if any, would Dallas be entitled to if Aikman does go to the Dolphins? This would have to be a big issue in deciding whether or not it's worth it for Miami to proceed with this.

I think Troy Aikman would be a great addition to the Miami Dolphins-they need a big play QB-Troy has the experience and the know how-actually I would like to see him play for Tampa Bay, but that is just a preference.
