Vinny Testaverde holds an NFL record for most seasons having thrown a touchdown pass with 21 consecutive seasons. But success didn’t just happen on the pro level. It began early and happened often since he was a part of the University of Miami’s quarterback dynasty. He played an important role in the university’s rise as one of the top collegiate football programs of the 1980s and 1990s. In 1986, Testaverde won the Heisman Trophy, an award annually given by the Downtown Athletic Club to the most outstanding player in collegiate football.
The first Vinny Testaverde appearance on the professional gridiron was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1987 as the team’s starting quarterback. Since then, he’s traveled the NFL gauntlet, having played for the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and finally for the Carolina Panthers in 2007. But don’t be fooled by the numbers of teams he’s played for. Testaverde had quite the NFL career, even being invited to play two Pro Bowls during his impressive NFL career.
