EDMONTON - The Edmonton Elks have signed American Vincent Testaverde Jr. (QB), the club announced Monday. ​

Testaverde Jr. spent time with Texas Tech, Miami, and Albany during his college career. He played one game for Texas Tech in 2014, completing 57 percent of his throws for 116 yards. The Florida native would spend the next two seasons (2015-2016) with Miami but would not see any game action before transferring to Albany. He was forced to sit out the 2017 season due to transfer rules but would play in eight games for the Great Danes in 2018, throwing for 1,714 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Following his college career, Vincent attended training camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2019), signed with the B.C. Lions (2020) and joined the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League in 2021.

Vincent's father, Vinny Testaverde, played 21 seasons in the NFL, and ranks 16th with 46,233 passing yards and 18th with 275 passing touchdowns all-time.
