VINNY TESTAVERDE RUMORS

Ryan Fitzpatrick Drawing Comparisons to Former Jets QB Vinny Testaverde

Ryan Fitzpatrick's beard is a wonder unto itself, but his season has been drawing a lot of comparison's to one of a former New York Jets quarterback--Vinny Testaverde. Like Testaverde, he was acquired in his 30's (Testaverde was 35; Fitzpatrick is 32), and like him he was expected to be the back-up, but ended up moving into the starter's role. Testaverde ended up having one of his...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Franchise QB Series: 1986 Vinny Testaverde

For Vinny it was always a game of yards; in the end it was yards that separated the game- about 200 of them to be exact. It was a couple football fields that separated the beginning and ending of his career; it began in Tampa Stadium in 1987, and amazingly ended 20 years later taking a snap to seal the victory for the Carolina Panthers in Raymond James Stadium. For all the misery...
