Vincent made brief stops at the Lions and New England Patriots but did not feature in any NFL games for them.
The most famous and accomplished of the four brothers is 29-year-old cornerback Kyle Fuller, who was a star cornerback at Virginia Tech. He was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears.
