Troy Vincent News


Troy Darnell Vincent (born June 8, 1971 in Trenton, New Jersey) is a former cornerback and safety in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 1992 NFL Draft out of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He has since played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, and the Washington Redskins.

He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison with the seventh pick in the first round of the 1992 NFL Draft. Since ESPN began televised coverage of the NFL draft, Vincent is the only first round pick that was missed on live television. After returning from a commercial break, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue was informed that the network was still at break, returned to the podium and repeated the selection of Vincent to Miami.

He spent four seasons with the Dolphins. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1996, and he spent eight more seasons. Vincent made five consecutive Pro Bowls from 1999 to 2003. In 2002 Vincent was the recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
