Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

Can any of you please help me with this. I was sure he had a short stint with Miami as a punt returner.

I think he played in Canada for a couple of years right out of Notre Dame and then came to the Skins

I know, I know....I must be losing it! Too many Al Saunders threads!!!

Well, maybe he started out with the Skins as a punt returner.

Where in the hell did I get the Miami thing from?

Re: Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

Theismann, who attended Notre Dame and was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy his senior year, was originally selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 1971 NFL Draft. But he bypassed the sun of South Florida for the snowy winters of Canada where he played for the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts. The Redskins obtained his rights from Miami in 1974 and that season, he began a streak of 163 consecutive games played for Washington.

Re: Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

Returning punts?? Theismann?????

I was surprised to learn that he was a Dolphin once upon a time, so I'm not going to act like I know it's impossible that he was returning punts. But just let me reiterate the first part of my post:

Yeah, I think that he did returned punts his first couple of years. He was here at the end of the Sonny/Billy era and was doing anything he could to get on the field.

I remember reading once that the only thing sonny and billy agreed on was that they both hated Joe. lol.

Back when he was returning punts it was not based on speed but who was tough enough to take that kind of pounding. Remember those where the days that after you were tackled everybody jumped the pile for one reson or another.

In his 12-year NFL career, there wasn't much that Theismann, a native of New Brunswick, New Jersey, didn't deal with in some capacity. "I was hated as a quarterback and I was the odd-man out in a three-man quarterback rotation with Billy Kilmer and Sonny Jurgensen. They forged a friendship from their mutual dislike for me," he recalled. "It's true. I was not a favorite of the players or the fans because these guys were worshipped, and rightfully so, in the Washington area."

Theismann can also relate to starting at the bottom of the roster and working your way up, something many young players that star in college have to deal with on the pro level. "I started as a punt returner in the National Football League and was a third-string quarterback," Theismann remembered.

I know one or two members of this board who would love to see Mark Brunell returning punts.

And though he was controversial, Joe T. did what Sonny, Billy K. - or anyone else - could not: Theismann brought a Super Bowl trophy back to D.C.!
