“It was a privilege to work with Vinny this season”

TAMPA, Fla. - Vinny Testaverde's 21-year NFL career will end where it started.

The 44-year-old quarterback, who joined the desperate Carolina Panthers in October, said Saturday he will retire after Sunday's season finale against Tampa Bay, the team that drafted Testaverde first overall in 1987.
