What do you guys think about a possible move that would send Vinny to Dallas? It's not a rumor I'm just suggesting. But perhaps we send Vinny to Dallas for like a 4th rounder or something just to rid ourselves of his contract. Look at the parties involved though: Parcells (worked with Vinny and probably finds him dependable) Keyshawn (loves Vinny) and Richie Anderson would also be there. Also this would provide Dallas with a stopgap until they find a suitable quarterback. Vinny showed this past year that he's still capable of playing good football and would certainly be an improvement of Quincy Carter. What do you guys think?

[b] There is no freaking way any NFL team will absorb Testaverde's contract. [/b][/quote]
Would anyone take Vinny's salary & incentives ($1 mil with under 40% of snaps or $ 4 mil if over 40%)?
If we eat the bonus the rest of his contract may be doable for someone. If we got a fourth rounder and ate his bonus I would think we got lucky.

[b] I believe they have an agreement. Vinny won't retire before June 1st, then they can split the cap hit over two years, if the Jets release him after the 1st, he will be a FA. [/b][/quote]
....and then he can sign with Dallas at the vets minimum, no?
IMO...vinny would fit in as a back up at New England....Weis' offense suits him and his gun the best. If there is a chance to start in Dallas...he'll be there...he start and groom somebody at the same time...a little far fetched, but certaintly not out of the realm of possibilities.
There is no way Vinny goes to Dallas unless it is after June 1st.
If the Jets cut/trade Vinny before June 1st, the cap hit will accelerate onto the 2004 cap.
The whole point of cutting him after June 1st is to spread that hit over 2 years.
Plus, why would Dallas give up picks to sign a 41 year old QB that is going to be cut after June 1st anyway?
Doesnt make any sense.
With Garcia going to the Browns and Couch likely being cut, if I was Tuna, I would be putting in a call to Couch's agent ASAP. Tim Couch is a Vinny's "Tampa Bay years" clone---fragile ego, big arm, small brains---Tuna can work wonders with this guy.
Vinny ends up in Dallas June 2nd as the #2 QB
Carter stinks it up (neil O'Donnel?)
Vinny gets the nod in game 3 or 4
Vinny and the 'Boys win the SB
Vinny calls it quits
''Hi, Mr Jones, it's me Terry Bradway....I'm doing fine...Yes, I had a nice vacation...BTW, would you and the Tuna be interested in trading for Vinny T?...Yes, the old guy...I know he already annouced his retirement but I figured you would like to give us a pick for him anyway...I know you guys can sign up for nothing after June 1st but I figured you were nice and would like to give us a pick...No, I'm not taking any medication...Hello...Hello...Man, bad phone line...I got to call him back, I'm sure I can convince him!''
