The Colts said their goodbyes to one quarterback while welcoming another. Fair swap? Hardly…that quarterback is Trevor Vittatoe:
Vittatoe, 6-2, 220 pounds, was originally signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted rookie free agent on July 26, 2011. He was released prior to the start of the regular season. Vittatoe was then signed by the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League on February 2, 2012.
Vittatoe was a four-year starter at UTEP and finished his collegiate career as the school’s all-time leader in passing yards (12,439) and touchdowns (97). He is the only player in UTEP history to pass for 3,000 yards in three separate seasons.
With an impressive collegiate resume and a stint in the AFL let’s hope he’s the next Kurt Warner.
