He didn't practice, but was on the sidelines for a little while and then went back into a building. Though Tomlin has stated that Vick has not been at Pittsburgh's training camp, this source claims that it would be smart to say that if Vick was really there; it would keep the media at bay and provide very little distraction regarding the issue.

Obviously outside of that link posted by the Redskins, no one has come out from those organizations and said they didn't want him. I'm just thinking of how he'd fit in to their systems. I still think the Pats are the front runners. It just fits.

TACKLE
07-30-2009, 11:59 PM
I'd say Carolina, St.Louis, New England, Houston and San Fran would all be good places. I'd like to see him go to Carolina but I think he would be an intereting fit in Houston where he could back up Schaub but Schaub has yet to show he can stay healthy. In the Gary Kubiak offense, it uses a lot of bootlegs of play action. It would greatly help the running game if they had to commit the backside DE or LB to Vick instead of pursuing the ball. This would be huge to the run game in the ZBS system. I don't think they'd make that move but I think it would be an interesting move.

It's not just a hunch...

Coach Bill Belichick wouldn't rule out the possibility of signing free agent Michael Vick as Patriots camp opened Thursday.
Belichick must love winning more than dogs. "Michael is an outstanding player, you know, (but he) hasnít played in a couple years," Belichick said. "But exactly where he is right now, I donít know." For what it's worth, Bodog.com has set the odds of New England signing Vick at 4-to-1.

Frankly, I think to assume that 2 years out of the league is no big deal is a foolish thing. And yes, I'd take whoever starts for us over Vick because he sucked as a passer before prison, you think he's improved at all in that time? Give me a break. The Mike Vick apologists are never-ending.

Three years ago, the idea of Michael Vick and Tom Brady on the same roster would have been unfathomable. Today, it could become a reality.


Vick is currently working out for the Patriots staff at Gillette Stadium, a very reliable NFL source just told me. The source said, as of 3:30 p.m., Vick was on the field attempting to display that he remains one of the most athletic players the NFL had seen prior to his arrest


Oh my god

The Ravens are the only organisation who's honest. All but the Atlanta falcons would have brought his name up at a meeting. It's just a few people who brought it up would've been yelled at less.

The Ravens are one of the few teams willing to just say "yeah we'd consider it" which is a long way from the headline VICK SIGNS WITH RAVENS.

imo, He'll be a patriot, because Belichick knows losing a great backup QB and offensive coordinator in the same offseason as your franchise QB is coming back from a very serious injury isn't exactly a great situation and having a backup who can potentially produce without knowing the offense inside and out is a quality option to have.

i heard the ufl is willing to give him anywhere from 1 to 1.25 million a season and the ufl's season is only 6 games, which ends around november if i'm not mistaken. he can play, not to mention start, in the ufl, ease back into shape as an athlete and nfl teams will be more willing to take a chance on him then.

UPDATE on August 2 at 2:52

- There's a rumor going around that Vick was spotted at Pittsburgh's Training Camp during yesterday's (Saturday) second practice, in the afternoon. He didn't practice, but was on the sidelines for a little while and then went back into a building. Though Tomlin has stated that Vick has not been at Pittsburgh's training camp, this source claims that it would be smart to say that if Vick was really there; it would keep the media at bay and provide very little distraction regarding the issue. LINK (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/228956-vick-spotted-at-steeler-training-camp)

- Ed Bouchette, a writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette, states that he believes the team does not want to and will not sign Michael Vick. He says that Dennis Dixon is already a very similar type of player, and that Pittsburgh won't want the extra media attention that would come from signing Vick. He also said that Vick is not a "Steeler-type player." LINK (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09214/987840-66.stm)

I would get behind the Packers signing him. A two year deal would make sense. He stays quiet for a year, proves he's still an athlete and we either trade him or cut him. It would be like signing a future mid round draft pick probably.

Carolina makes the most sense - remember how many times Vick embarassed the Carolina D... John Fox has had so many nightmares about him and look what Delhomme did in the playoffs last year.

I remember Carolina soundly solving the Vick problem when Thomas Davis arrived.

Vick wouldn't be able to beat Delhomme out as a passer and we have three very good running backs on the roster.

Fox has also said on two occasions Vick is not coming to carolina. Carolina also doesn't have the cap space to sign another qb for a few years and doesn't want to get rid of either McCown or Moore, there's bigger issues at DT right now.

An offense that was as good as carolina's last year on the ground doesn't need Vick as well.

I've thought this over and I'm officially rooting for the Texans to sign Vick. This is apropos of absolutely nothing, except I think it'd be a nifty fit.

They have a dynamic offense and a high ceiling defense but everyone knows they're not in line with the serious contenders right now. Vick could give them a ridiculous X-factor and push them into relevance for basically the first time in franchise history.

We all know Schaub will go down at some point. Vick might even be an upgrade anyway. Plus there are plenty of other ways to get him on the field.

Vick would let them really go crazy with the wildcat, and at this point it is so apparent there is no real market for him, that you know he would run some screens/a few plays in the slot if they asked him to. Even Vick the punt returner. Obviously I realize this would apply to any team he signs with but the Texans just have so much to gain.

I'm not saying the Colts/Titans aren't favored in that division, but there's been a lot of offseason motion and it could be time for them to make the kind of dynamic move that ultimately could help them win a few extra games and finally get into the playoffs.

Anytime he would be on the field, that's one less set of eyes on Andre Johnson, which is really all that matters to the Texans.

Damnit I just want the Texans to rise up, and I don't think that fan base will be all that hateful towards him.

I bet Jacksonville for two reasons.

Garrard has been struggling big time, last year and in camp this year. I do not buy that he is a long term option.

The team needs a spark, they barely fill that stadium, and Jacksonville is right in Michael Vick-country. If there is any place where he is still beloved its in that region. A lot of African-Americans in Georgia and Northern Florida love Michael Vick, for cultural reasons as much as for his football ability. They have an emotional connection to him.

I know Troy can run the Wildcat but I'd love to bring Vick in. He'd give the offense that explosive weapon that they've never really had. I'm not too concerned about the whole PR side of things because they've had to deal with both Ray back in 2000 and also Jamal Lewis. I think the Ravens could handle Vick better than almost anybody other than the Pats.

On those other teams he could end up starting late in the season and potentially long term after that.

He would have to sit on the bench for 2-4 years before he gets a chance to start for those teams; his best shot at getting another opportunity to become a franchise qb again is to prove to the owners around the league that he has changed. Plus, the Ravens offense is missing a playmaker, he could provide a lot to that offense. He doesn't have to be a starting qb to make a factor on any offense.

He'll probably only get a 1 year deal with any team he signs with. Baltimore needs playmakers on offense and Vick could provide that.

Only problem I have with the fit is that when Flacco has a bad game, Ravens fans will be calling for Vick to start. Having Vick behind you is alot of pressure to put on a young QB.

Lets be honest, Vick is going to play Qb and some wildcat Qb/Rb. He isn't going to return kicks, I doubt he could take those hits, and he isn't playing WR because he probably doesn't have the hands for it. We know he can run and kind of throw.

So how would he sit on the bench 2-4 years in Carolina or Jacksonville(which really doesn't make sense), yet go to Baltimore and play right away? Somehow Delhomme and Garrard keep him on the bench for 4 years and Baltimore finds a spot for him immediately?


Also who is to say those teams can't use the wildcat? Who is to say that whoever gets Vick won't implement ways to get him on the field? I've yet to even see Baltimore run the Wildcat anyway, and Jacksonville needs playmakers just as bad.


As well as the fact that he'd be in an area where lots of people still love Vick and would probably embrace him alot quicker. Protesting is going to follow him wherever he goes because PETA has nothing better to do.

The more I think about this the more it makes sense. Vick as much as he sucked in it, had experience in the west coast system and realistically McNabb has a tendency to get boo boos nearly every year and so I'm guessing they just want someone who can keep the team competitive if McNabb goes down. Vick is probably the best candidate to do that and if you bring him out for a trick sweep toss every now and then it's not exactly going to hurt either.

I'm fanatical but I do not think Vick will put this team over the top.

All he does is provide the Eagles with another weapon, McNabb has already talked about some wild formations at his press conference, he talked about how he and Michael are friends and how he lobbied for him to come to the Eagles.

Andy said he has 'plans' for him.

I can't wait for him to play just because of the sheer amount of match-up problems the Eagles will have on offense, using him at WR, RB and at QB? That will add an explosive edge to this offense. Can you imagine Vick and McNabb in the same back-field? That will lead to some confusion on the defenses part.

There are just so many match-up problems now, Westbrook and Shady can split out wide and run the ball, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Kevin Curtis can burn you, McNabb talked about splitting out wide and Vick will be a QB/WR/RB. This will keep defensive coordinators up at night.

I am super excited to see this offense at work, but I know that winning a superbowl takes more than an explosive offense, just look at the Saints, Colts and Patriots, none of them won a superbowl with just an explosive offense. The defense will have to play well and the offensive line will have to play better than they did tonight. The Eagles did not play well tonight, they got to many penalties, Jason Peters really struggled with pass protection, the return game struggled with Jeremy Maclin and the entire offensive line didn't play well. The Eagles have their work cut out for them, but I still believe they have the talent to go places but they need to work on the finer points of the game.

I'm agreeing with what most of you said, cause yeah athlete's get away with a whole lot (I mean c'mon Donte Stallworth commited manslaughter this past year, and I he is getting a month of jail time and 2 year's house arrest. He Killed a guy mind you, even though it was considered an accident. But to just say because Vick went bankrupt and lost as much money as any player could lose doesn't mean we should feel sorry for him. I mean, I feel good that the guy is back in the league, cause he was just electrifying when he was on the field (and I really can't wait to see him in the preseason). But its not just the act of animal cruelty thats crazy, but that he had an illegal gambling ring based on it, and that he lied as well. I'm not down with PETA cause they try to force feed their ideals too much, but I could understand why they would be out in full force

Crazy, but thats just what some people think. That just how opinions work. The statement PETA made on behalf of the Vick signing was interesting. They basically backed it because they said Philly has lots of animal cruelty that occurs, and they feel that a rehabilitated Vick will be able to minimize the problem. This will probably get some of the activists off of him in Philly when it comes to protests at the stadium and elsewhere

The thing that id be worried about is the HUGE distraction this brings to the team. The Eagles didn't need to make this move, their offense is going to be lights out without Vick, let alone with him.

I think the injury bug, plus the distractions that Vick brings to the Eagles could wear on this team and take a toll on them this year.

If they can get passed that though....watch out.

Vick was a one of a kind player when he broke into the league. Not everyone faced him, so not everyone had to gameplan against him and even if they did, they only played him once or twice a year.

Now, most every team has some variation of the wildcat and EVERY team is gameplanning against it. I imagine Vick would run some variation of it. Even though Vick is still a one of a kind player, he is likely being put into a formation that everyone sees and everyone is playing against.

I think to a certain extent, this makes it a little easier for teams to defend.

Donovan McNabb has nothing to worry about.

Are you guys serious right now? Kolb has proven nothing thus far and I doubt Vick will come in and be effective enough to take the starting job from McNabb. If he doesn't get a new contract it will be because of an injury or the length of years. Not because of the quarterbacks behind him.

Why do I think the whole PeTA thing was pre-negotiated? They don't seem nearly as full of venom about Vick as they were before, no one expected them to welcome him in Philly like that. The real fecal matter will hit the fan in Eagles road games, that's where the protesters will be. And people hurling epithets at him on the field like There's Michael Vick with that hangdog look....

And I think they s/b doing that & worse. I'm in the minority on the board in saying a long while ago he s/b banned for this -- it was a Federal freaking crime after all -- & I'm sticking to it. Since this thread is now an all-Eagles fanbase discussion, I can only say that adding Vick to the roster has not made the team better.

This coupled with the loss of Jim Johnson has dropped the Eagles, once thought to have the most talented roster in the league top to bottom, to a B-tier team if he sees the playing field. Don't take my word for it, look how effective Vick was in Atlanta his last yrs there & how he was vilified by his team mates for his other off the field humiliations in the press. Vick simply was not that good as a Falcon & was a liability to his team, he created far more trouble than he was worth. And that was in an offense customized for Vick, think about the major adjustments the Eagles will have to make for him now. No player can come back into the NFL after 2 yrs. out & be effective, it's just that talented & competitive a league, end of story.

I believe the Philly boo birds will turn their ire on Vick sooner than anyone thinks. He may be the most hated player the NFL since Haynesworth raked his cleats over the Cowboy o-lineman's face a few yrs ago.

As I'm sure you are well aware, football is about more than just adding and subtracting talent. They aren't just taking on Michael Vick the player, and I would also agree that the distraction isn't nearly worth the potential bonus of having a better backup QB.

Why do I think the whole PeTA thing was pre-negotiated? They don't seem nearly as full of venom about Vick as they were before, no one expected them to welcome him in Philly like that. The real fecal matter will hit the fan in Eagles road games, that's where the protesters will be. And people hurling epithets at him on the field like There's Michael Vick with that hangdog look....

And I think they s/b doing that & worse. I'm in the minority on the board in saying a long while ago he s/b banned for this -- it was a Federal freaking crime after all -- & I'm sticking to it. Since this thread is now an all-Eagles fanbase discussion, I can only say that adding Vick to the roster has not made the team better.

This coupled with the loss of Jim Johnson has dropped the Eagles, once thought to have the most talented roster in the league top to bottom, to a B-tier team if he sees the playing field. Don't take my word for it, look how effective Vick was in Atlanta his last yrs there & how he was vilified by his team mates for his other off the field humiliations in the press. Vick simply was not that good as a Falcon & was a liability to his team, he created far more trouble than he was worth. And that was in an offense customized for Vick, think about the major adjustments the Eagles will have to make for him now. No player can come back into the NFL after 2 yrs. out & be effective, it's just that talented & competitive a league, end of story.

I believe the Philly boo birds will turn their ire on Vick sooner than anyone thinks. He may be the most hated player the NFL since Haynesworth raked his cleats over the Cowboy o-lineman's face a few yrs ago.

Revisionist history?
Mike Vick was the only reason Atlanta was even competitive under Reeves and Mora. Just look at how bad they were without him.

And did you really just say Gregg Knapp's offense was customized for Vick? During the Mora regime, I can't count how many times I posted that I have never seen a worse match for scheme and personnel than the Falcons under Mora/Knapp.

His preseason leg injury was the reason the Falcons sucked that yr & it got Reeves fired.

Why does anyone believe anything Vick says now? He has a major credibility problem. Remember, he was called into a pvt. session with Blank & team executives, confronted with evidence gathered by PIs hired by the Falcons of his dogfighting in Virginia & denied it, they were dumb enough to believe him.

Or were they more anxious about losing their starting QB than a scandal this info was bring if made public? Philly fans, pls. don't fall into this same trap with this bozo.

lol. Why the Eagles drafted Kolb #1 that yr. is beyond all human understanding. /heavy sarcasm spoiler alert/ Is it true that they replaced the Rocky statue in Philadelphia with a lifesize statue of Kevin Kolb?

As good as Vick may have been, my gripe with him has always been that he is a horrid passer. Every so often he throws the most ridiculously perfect ball, but for the most part, he has a scattergun and questionable decision making. After 2 years of not playing? Could be even worse.

It was not surprising in the least that the receivers that were not tremendously effective with Vick are flourishing with Matt Ryan.

Actually, it's because Roddy White got dedicated. He was an every day McDonalds eater with his priorities out of whack.

He's said that numerous times.

Too bad people like to assume things.

Technically, White had his breakout year with Chris Redman and Joey Harrington as his QBs. This obviously proves that Redman and Harrington>Vick.

Yes, I'm sure Michael Vick's career ~53 completion percentage is all because Roddy White ate McDonalds. It is completely White's fault that he caught over 100 balls more in the past 2 years than he did with his 2 years with Vick.

I'm sure it's also White's fault that Michael Jenkins' production has gone up since he's been gone as well.

It could not be that despite his incredible escapability and ability to run that Vick just is not very accurate. Proposterous. Bad assumption on my part. I apologize.

In all honesty, right now it looks like
Shady McCoy
Leonard Weaver
Jason Peters
Stacey Andrews
and then Maclin and Vick are real close, though the edge goes to Maclin probably.

Hobbs won't have as much of an impact as these guys becuase right now he looks like the 4th CB on the team, our Dime CB.

I hope Maclin gets the edge over the backup qb/gimmick play guy who isn't going to be available until what is it week 6 or 7?

It couldn't be anything like young players just getting better with more experience and dedication. **** like that never happens.
