MIAMI (AP) _ Dan Marino will pass on another season and announce his retirement Monday, a source close to the quarterback said today.

Marino, 38, will retire after 17 seasons with the Miami Dolphins, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The future Hall of Famer decided to reject an offer to play this year for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Dolphins and Marino's agent, Marvin Demoff, said they were unaware that the quarterback had made a decision.

``This is Dan's arena,'' Dolphins president Eddie Jones said today. ``Dan's going to say what Dan's going to say.''
