NFL legend Joe Theismann is urging people to get tested for a potentially fatal condition.

The former Washington Redskins quarterback is in town, hosting free health screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, or “Triple A,” at the Gaylord National Resort Thursday.

A free screening takes about 15 minutes to complete and will be offered on Friday, June 8, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required.

Theismann dropped by Good Morning Washington to talk about how AAA has impacted his family personally.

He also briefly chatted with GMW’s morning anchor Steve Chenevey about Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III.
