Vinny Testaverde Refuses to Die

Damn, I remember back in the day when I was first growing up and Vinny Testaverde was just finishing up what had been a pretty decent career. Now, I’m no longer growing up, but the same can be said about Vinny. And rumblings are that the pre-historic, leather helmet wearing, tie-dyed t-shirting Testaverde will be signing with the Patriots once again this year. As he told The Tony Bruno Show on Sporting News Radio:

“I was up there for minicamp,” he said. “The plan was to wait until two-a-days were over, then I was going to go on in there and join the team then.”

Fact or fiction: Vinny Testaverde has been in the NFL longer than most NBA players have been born? Fact. Fact or fiction: you would rather have Vinny Testaverde as your backup than Joey Harrington? Probably fact. And what does that say for you? It will be interesting to see if the Pats actually sign him to a contract. Just another Bill Belichick specialty for you — a 43-year-old quarterback. Now you know their secret weapon.

    Lay off Joey…he’s a stud ballplayer. Blame Mooch.

    Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, Doug Flutie and now Vinnie Testaverde. Patriots backup QB Matt Cassel sure know how to attract Heisman winners.

    They should bring Flutie back and have a Flutie vs. Vinny battle for the #3 spot.

    Im not even trying to be funny it Twins is right, bring back Flutie.

    Dougie is a young 40 something.
    Testes moved like an old 40 year old when he broke in the league.

    Vinny is the Julio Franco of the NFL

    Vinny = Julio Franco. Flutie probably could get the job done.
