Will Vinny Return?

The Jets are still non-committal on the future of quarterback <STRONG>Vinny Testaverde</STRONG>.

They say they want him back, but it seems to hinge on his willingness to take a paycut. If Testaverde accepts a much lower salary, he can keep his job. If he plays hardball, the Jets will turn to Chad Pennington . . . If Bill Parcells takes the Tampa Bay job, expect him to go after Jets capologist Mike Tannenbaum. The Jets would like to keep him, but if the Bucs offer him a promotion, he is allowed to leave. So if Parcells offers him a GM job, he could go . . . The Colts have asked permission from the Jets to talk their defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell. The Jets were more than happy to grant him peromission. Cottrell still hasn't heard from the San Diego Chargers . . . Herman Edwards says the Jets are going to draft a lot of defense in April's selection meeting. Edwards and Terry Bradway feel the Jets need to get a faster on defense.
