It's a scary injury. Maybe that's why athletes joke around so when they talk about concussions. "I looked over and saw Mike Tyson standing there," Troy Vincent said of his TKO during Sunday's game against Washington. "I want a rematch. " Vincent knows how serious a concussion can be. He was knocked unconscious last year in a collision with teammate Mike Zordich, and he still can't remember some of the things that followed. This time, he was trying to tackle Washington fullback Larry Centers.

Like a lot of people, Troy Vincent sat home Sunday evening and channel-surfed through the TV news coverage of the Eagles' 10-9 victory over the Detroit Lions. Vincent saw a lot of things for the first time: the play he made to break up a potential touchdown pass to Johnnie Morton, the inadvertent hit from teammate Michael Zordich that knocked Vincent unconscious, the postgame news conference in which Vincent assured reporters that he felt fine. "I forgot I did an interview," Vincent said yesterday as he prepared for practice.

Former Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent was named the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, a major promotion for the 43-year-old Pennsbury High School alumnus.

He will also be a nonvoting member of the league's competition committee. "We will emphasize clarity, consistency, and credibility to ensure the highest standards and best practices for our teams and fans," Vincent said in a statement.

The Miami Dolphins might be about to even the score in their offseason free-agent war with the Eagles. Free-agent defensive end Daniel Stubbs is expected to decide today whether to re-sign with the Eagles or accept an offer from the Dolphins. Stubbs' agent, Alan Herman, said he spoke with both clubs yesterday and that the Dolphins hold a slight edge. "There was significant dialogue with both clubs," Herman said. "I would have to say at this point that it looks a little bit more favorable for Miami.

As expected, one Eagles defensive back made the Pro Bowl and another did not. But the expectation was that cornerback Troy Vincent would make it and fourth-year free safety Brian Dawkins would be left wishing. After one season in which the Birds sent no one, Dawkins was voted in as a reserve behind San Francisco's Lance Schulters to the Pro Bowl, the NFL announced yesterday. St. Louis's Todd Lyght and Dallas's Deion Sanders were named as starters at cornerback. Arizona's Aeneas Williams also made the team.

At the end of the first half, Troy Vincent found himself involved on back-to-back pass breakups against the Dallas Cowboys' Anthony Miller. It was spectacular theater. On the first one, Vincent was thisclose to being called for pass interference as he worked over Miller. On the second, Vincent was going to be called for interference before an official realized Miller had stepped out of bounds. Great, great drama. But not without a price. Vincent left the field just before the half with his left arm pinned to his side.

The use of human growth hormone is more of a problem in baseball than in football, the president of the NFL Players Association insists. "We feel it's not something that's common in our space," former Eagles defensive back Troy Vincent said yesterday before the start of the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. The NFL and other leagues do not test for HGH. Vincent said the question of how soon a reliable test would be available was a topic of discussion at a meeting yesterday involving commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director Gene Upshaw, and more than a dozen players.

Former Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent knows he won't be counted on to be the savior of a Buffalo team that underachieved last year - and that's fine with him. "I'm just going to fit in," Vincent said during a conference call yesterday after he signed a 6-year contract with the Bills. "I didn't want to go to a place where I was the key and the main component that was going to get a team to the promised land. " Vincent saw players on the Bills' roster such as Takeo Spikes, London Fletcher, Nate Clements, Drew Bledsoe and Eric Moulds, and immediately knew he could be a more-than-capable addition.

Troy Vincent would have preferred Bryant Gumbel kept his views to himself rather than using his TV show as a forum to harshly criticize the NFL's relationship with its players union. Vincent, the NFLPA president and Buffalo Bills safety, called Gumbel's comments "inappropriate" and "detrimental. " "He's entitled to speak his mind . . . and he felt that was his forum to do so," Vincent said yesterday after a Bills training camp practice in suburban Rochester, N.Y. "But I just thought the timing of things, there's too many good things going on - we just announced a new commissioner - in our sport to have these kind of blemishes.

Eagles left cornerback Troy Vincent showed up at Veterans Stadium yesterday with his strained left shoulder heavily wrapped, and coach Ray Rhodes said that the six-year veteran was day-to-day. "He's awful sore at this time," Rhodes said at his weekly news conference. "He really couldn't raise his arm up [Monday night]. There was no way he could continue to play. " Vincent injured his shoulder on the last defensive play of the first half of Monday night's 21-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys while breaking up a long pass for Anthony Miller.

IT COMES DOWN to this: To embrace the NFL's ruling that Washington's Chris Baker "did nothing wrong" in his blindside flattening of Nick Foles on Sunday, you have to embrace the idea that Foles was trying to tackle Bashaud Breeland when Baker hit him. That was the stance taken by NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, in one of a trio of tweets aimed at explaining his rationale yesterday afternoon. On Tuesday, Vincent told the Washington Post that Baker should not have been penalized for the hit that started a brawl and led to the ejections of Baker and Eagles tackle Jason Peters.

WHEN YOU cover any group of professional athletes for an extended amount of time, you get a sense of which ones are only living in the moment and which ones always have the gears turning in their heads with a look to the future. Former Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent was one of those guys you always knew had a well-designed plan for what was going to be next after his playing career ended. In a lot of ways, you had the sense that he might have a bigger impact on the NFL in his postplaying days than he did while he was becoming a five-time Pro Bowl player.

IT'S AS though steel locker-room doors are transparent for Troy Vincent. He isn't in the Eagles' locker room anymore, but he seems to know exactly what's going on. The Eagles inducted Vincent into their Hall of Fame before their Monday night game against Carolina. He welcomed the honor, and, in typical Vincent style, made the most of the chance to undress the Eagles' obvious deficiencies in the leadership department. In particular, Vincent assessed the experience of Nnamdi Asomugha, the most heralded corner to play in Philadelphia since Vincent went to five Pro Bowls from 1996-2003.

IF YOU'RE sitting around waiting for more shots to be fired in Sheldon Brown's contract insurrection against the Eagles, Troy Vincent has some advice for you: Move along. There's nothing more to see here. Yes, Brown still is unhappy with the 4 remaining years on that forever-and-a-day extension he signed before World War II (OK, 2004). Yes, he still would prefer to be traded if the Eagles aren't going to change their position on reworking his deal or giving him another extension.

After a year of being poked and prodded, his life and businesses exposed to unprecedented scrutiny and his character questioned, Troy Vincent sits comfortably on a wooden chair in the middle of his office and holds up a hand to form a zero. That, in one symbolic gesture, is what Vincent says the myriad allegations fired at him - often by anonymous sources quoted in various media reports - amount to. He'll find out this weekend in Hawaii whether he's right, as the final stage unfolds in a highly politicized and ugly search process to determine who will succeed the late Gene Upshaw as the NFL Players Association's next executive director.

Once upon a time, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that former Eagles cornerback and Trenton native Troy Vincent would become the next executive director of the National Football League Players Association. The news came yesterday that Gene Upshaw, the head of the players union since 1983, had died at the age of 63 from pancreatic cancer. While it still seems logical that Vincent is a leading candidate to replace Upshaw, events of the recent past have clouded what direction the union will follow.

Troy Vincent the cornerback has a new agent but not a new job. Troy Vincent the businessman, however, is quite busy. Now in his second term as president of the NFL Players Association, Vincent is presiding over what possibly is his most important meeting of the last three years. The NFL is as popular as ever. Teams have record payrolls. And yet the players' collective reputation has suffered a serious blow thanks to a series of recent off-the-field incidents and the loud criticism from former players regarding their pensions.

Veteran safety Troy Vincent - one of the most popular Eagles of the last 10 years - was cut yesterday by the Washington Redskins, saving the team about $1.3 million in salary-cap space. The Redskins signed Vincent six games into the 2006 season after free-agent acquisition Adam Archuleta's early struggles. Vincent, 35, started three games, missed two with a hamstring injury, then returned as a reserve for the final two. His biggest play came on special teams, when he blocked a field goal in the final minute of a win over Dallas.
