I thought it was a joke when I saw it...I am waiting to see:

Ravens sign Bernie Kosar

Saints bring back Rickey Jackson, Frank Warren, and clone Dave Waymer with hair found in locker room

I'm guessing he'll be more of a sideline precense, similar to Steve DeBerg with Atlanta in 1998.

I wish him well.

Hey, the Flacons brought back Mort. Maybe they think old Vinny still has some of that magic left.

You guys remeber how SCLSU used their waterboy and it worked, but when Michigan used their towel boy they didn't fair too good.

TACKELIN' FUEL!

SMILE GUYS

It baffles me that Testaverde is still in demand at his age, and a guy like Shaun King, who brought Tampa to the NFC Championship game in his rookie season (he was one bad call from a Super Bowl, IMHO), never really got a good chance to show his potential.

He had plenty of chances... he just never produced.

Shaun was a starter in Arizona a few years ago I think.

As for Vinny, Parcells was once quoted as saying Vinny's arm would still be NFL-caliber "at 60". Plus I think he's always been a gym rat, and has kept himself in great shape.

I never thought Vinny was all that...How many playoff wins did the guy have??? HE'll get ya 8-8 and not much more and that was in his good years...He is another first round bust...
