Most likely known by the fans of today’s NFL for his comical prostate commercials, Theismann was at one time an “elite” Quarterback. However his career had its ups and downs. Drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 1971, in the fourth round, Theismann was cut. He quickly found a job however… Playing in the highly coveted CFL, for the Toronto Argonauts, until 1973. Following the ’73 season, the Redskins gained the rights to Theismann where he would wrap up his Football career in 1985 with his . On the way he’d win a Superbowl, acquire the NFL MVP, and earn two Pro Bowl bids. The Redskins great is now suffering weird side effects from his prostate pills. He claims that the best passer in NBA history could have a good career as a NFL Quarterback. “I would love to work him out and also serve as his agent.  I’ll go wherever he wants this summer.  He could play another four years in the NBA before seriously trying the NFL. . . .  There are not a lot of 38- or 39-year-old basketball players, but there are 38- and 39-year-old quarterbacks, so there’s always time for him.” Woah… This sounds way to familiar. Oh yeah that’s why. Don’t get me wrong, I think Lebron could have had an extraordinary career in the NFL as a Tight End… But a Quarterback? “I wouldn’t count him out. He’s the most tremendous physical specimen in all of sports.  I think he’s certainly talented enough.  He’s intelligent.  He’s like the quarterback on the Miami Heat, but there are so many things [to being an NFL quarterback]. There’s reading defenses. There’s throwing the ball with touch. There’s throwing a spiral in the wind.  Maybe his hands are too big.  The football is a different shape, and a basketball is obviously a lot bigger than a football.” If this wasn’t intriguing enough, Theismann ended the interview being asked why he wanted to help Lebron James… “I need a job.” Theismann… If you need a job you should really look into comedy.     Joe Theismann convinced Lebron to join Football.
