    I read somewhere that he's expected to sign in the latter part of camp after the two a days are over.

    Eh I hope they start out the year with only two QBs so they can use the spot for another position.

    He mentioned in that article it would be after two a days..a few weeks..if/when he is needed. A shadow roster QB in waiting.

    I'm sure they could always sign him during the season if they really need him.

    Thats kinda funny. He refuses to sign a contract until the brutal 2 aday practice schedules are a thing of the past.

    I guess when you're 43 and respected by BB you can do what the hell you want.

    Maybe that's Asante's strategy? Skip the 2-A-days?

    Think about it. He's spent 21 years in the league and if you figure 6 weeks, give or take of training camp, Vinny has spent 126 weeks, or 2.5 years of his life in training camp and suffering thru 2 a days. Put that in the 'been there, done that' category.Se you in late August....

    I have no problem with it. I respect the hell out of Vinny T and what hes done over his career. Hes a good guy for Brady to talk to, he knows the offense and can give you a couple of games to start in an emergency. I just think it's funny that he has that level of repore and understanding with BB. Very cool.

    I met him once down at Disney waiting to get on Tower of Terror when he was with the Jets. Real nice guy.

    He'll pass it. Vinny T is a gym rat. Keeps himself in great shape all year round.

    Or maybe he'll take BB out for a couple of beers and miraculously pass it ;-)

    Something tells me that Vinny will be in shape and it will be age-adjusted for the times required......

    He specifically said he'd sign when training camp was over. Nothing has changed. Nothing has happened. When camp is over, he'll be here.
