Two of New York state's most popular football figures over the past 25 years are getting involved in one of the most controversial sports storylines of the past few months.

DraftKings and FanDuel, the daily fantasy sports sites that went from ubiquitous, nonstop advertising presences on your television during Sunday football to completely disastrous legal pariahs seemingly overnight, have enlisted Vinny Testaverde of Jets fame and Hall of Fame Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to help them in their fight to (re-?)legalize daily fantasy sports.

“I think this is 2016. It’s not the 1990s. I think they need to get with the program and understand there’s more to it. There’s so many other states that do it,” Kelly said in an elevator interview on his way to meet with Klein. Kelly, who took the Buffalo Bills to four Super Bowls, said he is being paid an appearance fee by the fantasy sports industry for his time in Albany.

With regard to whether or not the state is going to acquiesce to these claims, the New York Post reports that

Assemblyman Gary Pretlow (D-Mt. Vernon) and Sen. John Bonacic (R-Middletown) have agreed on a bill that would allow the state to regulate the industry. Bonacic said it’s likely to pass by Thursday, when the current legislative session is scheduled to end.

Looks like we'll find out the future of daily fantasy sports soon, just in time for the football preseason to mercifully start heating up.
