He probably had to take a year off for rest and to get HGH therapy to truly heel. I doubt the NFL can reach into someone's retired personal life to test for stuff. Colts probably knew it and thought the retirement was temporary; something was up.
In Vinny's career has been his best year was still only 93.9 % and only went over 90% 3 seasons....Tucker's best season 97.4 % and over 90% 5 seasons already so even when we remove Vinny' worst years (which as a body of work doesnt make any sense) even at his best he pales in comparison. Most likable you can argue, longest tenured yep, greatest not by a long shot not even close in all honesty.
Tucker already 4X 1st team All Pro - Viny 3X and Vanderjagt 1X
Tucker has won a Super Bowl, Vanderjagt never has
Tucker All Decade team, Vanderjagt never was
Tucker #1 all time F.G. %, Vandy #10, Vinny #25
None of this above is opinion just fact
