History Tells A Story

An NFL journeyman threw 175 touchdowns to 183 interceptions his first 11 seasons in the league. That was, until, he came to the New York Jets, tossed 29 TDs, led Gang Green to the AFC Championship Game, and was named to the Pro Bowl.

This journeyman’s name was Vinny Testaverde. He came to the Jets in 1998 and, despite a poor history, found a home in New York where everything fit and finished his career on a high note.

This story closely resembles the one surrounding Ryan Fitzpatrick – the man who broke Vinny’s single-season record of 29 TD passes.

Sometimes, the perfect fit means the world for a veteran who always wound up in the wrong spot.
