Dan Marino doesn’t tweet very often, but he decided to send a message about Peyton Manning through the social networking service Thursday.
Shout out to #18, Indy will never forget your legacy. Can’t wait to see you back on the field doing what you do best. #ClassAct

Coming from someone else, this would just be seen as ordinary respect from one quarterback to another. But this is different, obviously. Dan played his entire career with the Dolphins. Peyton called Dan his idol when he broke the single-season passing touchdowns record in 2004.
Between this tweet and the recruiting pitch from LeBron and Dwyane Wade, Miami is breaking out the big stops to get Manning interested in Miami — and that’s without even backing up the Brinks truck yet.
