Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino did not have success in his first run at an executive job with the Miami Dolphins, but that hasn't made team owner Stephen Ross shy about giving Marino another front office role.

Marino recently ended his time as an analyst with CBS, leading to speculation that he could return to the Dolphins, and Ross admits that some initial discussions have begun.

According to a report from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Ross let it be known last week at the NFL owners' meetings in Orlando that he plans to talk to Marino about a job in the front office, but he is still unsure of what Marino's role would involve.

Marino served as the Dolphins' senior vice president of football operations in 2004, but resigned from that position just three weeks after taking the role, saying that he was not prepared to make the "lifestyle" adjustments it required. Having Marino around the organization and in the team facilities would help improve morale and repair the image that was hurt last season thanks to a dysfunctional locker room, but finding the right position for him will be paramount.
