    Vinny's back

    This morning, quarterback Vinny Testaverde told Tony Bruno on Sporting News Radio that he’s planning to return for a second year with the Patriots and 21st season in the NFL. And apparently, the decision was made a while ago.

    “It’s always been what he’s planned on,” said Mike Azzarelli, the former agent to Testaverde who remains a close friend. “This was not a snap decision. It was well thought out.”

    Testaverde was working as a non-roster invitee at both the Patriots’ OTAs and minicamp, and the players and coaches alike have said that the experience he brings is a great thing for everyone to draw on. The feeling, too, is mutual.

    The 43-year-old has a relationship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick dating back to 1993, when the two were together with the Browns, and has known personnel chief Scott Pioli almost as long.

    “That absolutely had a lot to do (with his return),” said Azzarelli. “His relationship with Belichick and Scott has always been outstanding and I know he’s looking forward to working with them again.”

    Testaverde has thrown for 45,281 yards, 170 touchdowns and 161 interceptions in a career that — in addition to his time in Cleveland and Foxboro — has included two stops with the Jets, and single stints with the Buccaneers, Cowboys and Ravens.

    BB and Testaverde have been dating since '93? This is big news.

    TX, you forgot Marquis Tuispopponahininajad, who should be way at the top of the list.
