I detest Vick for what he did, and feel he should never wear an NFL uniform again.

That being said, I think we all know that he will get reinstated the only question is when and which team will he play for.

I think his best chances are:

Baltimore
Cleveland
Cincy
Dallas

i doubt dallas would take him.. it will be a team who would want to run a wildcat to be productive, a team who badly needs a qb.. or a team that needs a player to make them money

I dont know if he will be taken back as a starting QB or even a QB at all, they might want him as a WR or RB that always has the risk of of a gadget play.

Man come one people... some say oh... he just killed a dog... well thats not entirely true, he electrocuted them, forced their heads under water to drown them, put them killed them in ways that is just F'n sadistic, used his house (which he bought with nfl money to facilitate felonious activity)

He should not be let back in, no way. You think his little stint in prison has changed his sick behavior....sure....now he'll be more carefull about being caught...

F Vick!!!! I used to really like him in college, but he has lost all my respect. Allowing him to play would be a travesty.

If it was little ole me that had all those charges trumped on me.... you guys wouldnt be hearing from me for at least 5 years.... I'm tired of celebrites getting breaks.... No way should he play....

Bring it on Vick lovers and 2nd chance givers.....well ... not like this is even his 2nd chance.

Oh yeah and lets not forget the fact that when the electric shocks and drownings failed to work they hung the dogs by the neck from trees...laughing gleefully....yeah a real stand up guy that deseres to be a millionaire....


when there's really good men that would love to have this opportunity...

Trust me... if a team hires Vick... it wont be because his 'talent'...it will be to get fans in the stadium..... and that is the sadest part of it all.

I agree that what he did was horrific, but you can't let Ray Lewis and Leonard Little back into the league and then keep Vick out.

Of course, I'm not sure what team is going to want him. The teams that don't care about character (Bungholes, Cowboys, Ratbirds) don't need him.

The list of teams that could use his talent is different than the list of teams known to accept human pieces of garbage. The only teams I see that meet the latter criteria are:

Ratbirds
Bungals
Cowgirls
Redskins
Raiders
Patriots

Of that list, who really needs a QB who can run, but has no accuracy and can't read a defense, and is rusty to boot?

steelreserve
05-21-2009, 11:17 AM
The 49ers and Broncos somehow made it all the way through the offseason with no quarterback, so they could both definitely use Vick. But they probably won't take him.

Honestly, I think being an emergency fill-in for someone who gets injured is his best shot at making it back this year. That gives the team an easy excuse of desperation that they wouldn't have in the offseason.

Maybe he ends up with the Bills in Week 4 after their annual QB injury happens. They might figure what the hell, we already took T.O., so what do we have to lose? Or Carolina is also pretty screwed if Delhomme gets hurt, so maybe that'll happen.

I think Vick is the perfect person to join that new league that Dennis Green is a part of this year. The one that will be a supplemental developmental league that ends just prior to the NFL Playoffs.

This would allow NFL teams to evaluate if Vick is even worth taking a chance on physically, never mind the baggage of PETA and what not. It also would allow for Vick to be the "high profile" guy in that League, see if he can carry that type of responsibility before he disrespects the NFL Again. Also, that smaller league will allow Vick the time to put in some serious Community efforts into protecting Animals and working with Local Communities to atone for his Sins. Then, after a year of playing in that league and proving himself, the NFL would be a better fit. It would give fans an opportunity to vent their anger on him, while he's Not in the NFL but still high profile.

But that's just what I think.

I think everyone with a brain cell knows that killing a human being is worse than killing a dog, but the manor in which he killed the dogs is indicative of a man with serious mental issues.

And Ray did get out of the charge so techniclly he's innocent which would make the 2 situations different.

Jerry Jones seems to have taken a new approach this year, dumping Terrell Owens, Adam Jones and Terry Johnson. (Sorry if you don't recognize them, I refuse to pay homage to these guys by referring to them by their celebrity nicknames.)

I would say the most likely destination is the CFL, but there are two problems with that. One, will his probation allow for him to leave the country? And second, doesn't there season start in about a month? After this much time away from football I can't imagine Vick is going to be ready to play again that quickly.

As far as NFL teams go I see three likely candidates, based more on the character of the team and past history than anything else:

Ravens
Bengals
Raiders

There are lots of employers that disqualify people based up criminal past, I don't see why the NFL doesn't. It would be easy, you get a felony or federal crime you don't play. It's sort of like the MLB though, if they really wanted to clean up the mess they could, they just are afraid of the side effects.

The Ratbirds have Flacco and the Bungholes have Cartoon.

The Raiders have JaMarcus Russell--who, as much as people like to dog him, has a slightly higher completion percentage than Ookie Mexico in spite of having horrible receivers. JR also had a higher passer rating last year than Ookie did in his last two seasons. Then you add in the fact that JR is younger, hasn't been out of football for two years, and is a recent #1 overall pick, and Al Davis would have to be off the charts stupid to sign Ookie---oh yeah. Definitely the Raiders.

Is Michael Vick looking at a salary of $620,000 in 2009?
By MJD

There’s nothing close to a guarantee that says Michael Vick will be plying his trade in the National Football League in 2009; in fact, if you judge by Roger Goodell’s suspension-happy past, it’s more likely that Vick won’t be in the big leagues this season.

That would leave Vick looking at the upstart UFL and presumably their maximum salary of $620,000. That’s the figure at the high end of the new league’s salary scale, with $35,000 being what most of the anonymous UFL’ers will make.

Yeah, real good idea for a brand new league to try to put butts in the seats while militant PETA wackos picket every game he plays in. The NFL can absorb the PR hit his playing again is guaranteed to create, a brand new league trying to establish an identity like the UFL won't be able to, IMO.

At least it would be worthwhile and have more readers than Limp Timber's.

But I digress...

I think Vick will be with a different team after he's reinstated for three years until he "retires" with his failed comeback attempts.

He'll keep his nose clean, but it's going to be a bumpy ride as a bottom feeder.

I honestly do not think anyone in the NFL will give him a chance. No matter the reputation of the team. I think based on events of the past few years and the way teams seem to be getting rid of the problem children, noone is going to want the negative publicity or disruption.

The Orlando franchise if the UFL owns his rights. Thats a two edged sword... it will give the league instant star power, while chasing away potential fans at the same time.

I still don't think he will be breathing this time next year.

Absolutely. He was literally ruined by this, and he did his time. If some GM is stupid enough to stake his job on it, why not? Especially in light of the fact that guys like Leonard Little and Donte Stallworth have gotten slaps on the wrists for killing human beings.

I just think it makes sense for him to play in this league from the stand point of getting his Game Legs back under him. If he breaks a couple 60 yard td runs and has a couple 200+ Passing yards, someone will sign him to the Big Boy Roster before the playoffs.

This league could really work to help the NFL find better players. Plus, with a "lock out" / "Strike" looming...we'll have Tape on potential Scab Players now!

He was engaged in an ONGOING criminal enterprise. He knew about and oversaw every aspect of this criminal activity. He was tried, and found guilty, and carried out his sentence. This is exactly how the legal system should work, and it did.

I cannot speak to the Little and Stallworth cases in comparison, because there was no ongoing, premeditated criminal activity in those cases. Vicks intent was to cause harm to dogs, even though he knew it to be wrong. He had chances to stop, and he did not. The DUI's are bad, and neither of those guys was punished severely enough, but in my book, Vick got what he had coming. If I got caught doing what he got caught doing, I'd lose everything too...which makes him even stupider than the average Joe BECAUSE he had so much more to lose...

I completely agree that Vick got what he had coming. But he's done his time at this point. If there is a GM or owner out there stupid enough to take the chance that he can still hack it at the NFL level (which I seriously doubt, on either count) and is willing to chance having militant PETA wackos following their team around to picket EVERY game he plays in, why not allow him back in? The precedent has already been set (and it's not a good one) by allowing the likes of Leonard Little and Ray Lewis to keep right on playing after human beings have lost their lives as a direct result of their actions, and barring Vick from the league for life at this point as a further disciplinary measure would be completely unfair, IMO.

Not to condone anything about the decisions made by mike vick, but I find it interesting that so many people have strong outward opinions about the treatment of animals (not that I don't agree) but may not take the time to think about how many of our "best friends" are put down every single day in animal shelters.

That's the one point I don't quite agree with. I think that once the justice system's involvement is done, your typical Average Joe would find it a lot easier to return to a more or less normal state. If you were, say, an auto mechanic, I don't think this would stop you from finding work indefinitely once you got out of jail. Vick has a lot of extra hurdles in front of him because he was in the public eye.

Having said that, it doesn't make him any less stupid, because as you said, he had a lot to lose and should've known better.

Also, I don't think it'll be the Raiders that he ends up with. It'll be whatever team has its starting quarterback go down in Week 7 and still thinks it has a shot at the playoffs, and isn't worried about maintaining some clean-cut image. I nominate Dallas and Buffalo as candidates because they both stooped low enough to live with T.O. and are in that borderline area. Same for the Ravens if anything happens to Flaccid. I mean, they've already got one felon on the team.

There will be a lot of fan backlash towards Vick. Protests at every stadium ever week, bad press. With the economy the way it is, I don't think any team wants to take the chance of people not attending their home games due to Vick.

Not to mention, he's been out of football for what, two years? Tons of rust, and can he hold up physically? What position does he play....QB, WR, RB, all three?

Also, he wasn't that good of a quarterback to begin with. So I don't see any teams taking a chance on him as a starter or a #2 QB.

Yeah, and on the other hand, I think with the economy the way it is, people have other things to worry about than spending all afternoon in a stadium parking lot protesting over some dogs every weekend. Everyone's going "OMG, think about all the bad publicity" but honestly? I think it's something that happened a couple years ago and people are mostly tired of hearing about it.

If it really came down to it, by the second home game, you'd probably only get about 30 hardcore PETA nutcases showing up to protest, and people's reaction would be "Whatever. I came here to watch the football game and drink beer." By the third home game, they'd probably give up and go home.

OK, maybe the hardcore PETA nutjobs wouldn't give up, but all they'd end up doing is making fools of themselves. And I have no doubt that the first time they even thought of trying some stunt like you mentioned, it would take about 4.3 seconds for them to be in handcuffs, and then get the book thrown at them. The NFL isn't going to mess around when it comes to protecting its precious family-friendly image, and attacking the patrons is the biggest no-no of all. There are few enough PETA zealots around that no one would be left to take their place once that happened.

PETA is nothing compared to some of the groups out there. Some of the more militant ones will be looking to make a name for themselves. And they want nothing to do with anyone but the guilty parties.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=jc-vickstatus072309&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

Vick, the No. 1 overall pickoff the Atlanta Falcons in the 2001 NFL draft, must now find a suitor. Though several teams have been speculated in connection to Vick this year, the executive said his best chance would be to sign with a team that has an established quarterback.

Teams such as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers might fit that bill because both have well-established quarterbacks that Vick wouldn’t be able to unseat. Furthermore, both have fan bases that would be accepting of the team taking a chance on Vick.

“You better have fans who are behind you and trust you,” the executive said. “If it’s a questionable situation, Vick could really blow up the whole situation. You’d have a coach on the hot seat and the players could split if the team isn’t winning and some guys think Vick should be playing.

There is a 0.000000001% chance the Steelers sign this guy. Why would we? He's a poor man's Dennis Dixon!

In all seriousness..why this hellbent assumption that Cribbs is this huge partier and this is why the it costs the Browns wins?

Heck, if that's the case, Big Ben should not have two super bowl rings right now. (No I'm not talking about the rape case,I'm talking about the pics of him drunk. I don't think he raped a girl, but I don't think he's exactly the model golden boy). Santonio Holmes got arrested for the exact same thing that Cribbs did WHILE IN THE PROS..not in college, playing pro ball.

I'm sorry, I'm not disrespecting the league champs in any way shape or form, but to assume the Browns won't be able to win anything just because they have a few players that may have misbehaved a long time ago and to assume that every last player on the Steelers is home for milk and cookies and then straight to bed at 8:30 is fairly absurd.

Now, I will argue that the lack of depth, the lack of leadership in the ownership dept, and lack of having sold defense since we've been back has cost us. But I really doubt that Cribbs getting busted for weed over at Kent was a significant reason why the Browns have not won a playoff game since 1994.

I saw something this morning that said he had $16 million in assets and $20 million in debt, which would put him $4 million in the hole. So pretty bad, but not completely unmanageable if he were to come back, play well, and get a medium contract. Which, although I'm no expert, is probably about the best he can hope for.

Like it matters. If past history is any indicator, even if he makes it out of debt and retires with a few million in the bank, he'll probably just piss it all away on hella weed an gold teef. I'd put the over/under for that at two years.

Vick paid for what he did.... maybe payed a bit more than was necessary... lost his money... 2 years in one of the toughest prisons.... blablabla.... but he paid his time... let him back in....no problems

I think this is one of the first times I agree with you completely. Probably because it's not about politics. Vick did his time and in my opinion he did more than enough jail time. I base that in comparison to some of these pedophile and other sexual assault assailants who serve very little time and deserve to die in prison or be killed in prison. Give him one chance and one only. He has a family and kids and hopefully can turn things around. Maybe he will get involved with more community service or other ways to give back. Maybe he will realize he is on thin ice and watch film and become a decent QB. I know thats a stretch. Everyone deserves a second chance. TO has gotten 9 or 10, pacman same, and Ray Ray has also got a second chance. Plus I cant wait to see these whinny arse peta people protesting their worthless life away every Sunday Vick suits up.

Vick Is Favored to Join Patriots or Steelers, Oddsmaker Says

July 28 (Bloomberg) -- Michael Vick’s second chance in the National Football League is most likely to come from the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Internet gambling Web site BetUS.com.

“The ideal situation for Vick coming out of this process is to land with a respectable franchise that has strong leadership from the owner to the coaches to the players,” BetUS.com spokesman Reed Richards said from the Web site’s Costa Rica-based office. “New England and Pittsburgh both fit that description. They would keep him on a short leash.”

The Patriots and Super Bowl-champion Steelers are given 4-1 odds of adding Vick by BetUS.com.

Other teams listed by BetUS are the Tennessee Titans (5-1), Miami Dolphins (6-1), Minnesota Vikings (13-2), Oakland Raiders (7-1), Jacksonville Jaguars (8-1) and Seattle Seahawks (15-1).

Sporting News gives a better bet

Ranking NFL teams in terms of how much they need and want Michael Vick for the 2009 season:

1. Redskins. They could use a quarterback of Vick's skills to push Jason Campbell, who is only two years younger than Vick.

2. Raiders. If JaMarcus Russell doesn't work out, adding a great athlete who can perform like another running back would be tempting.

3. 49ers. They have uncertainty at quarterback, and coach Mike Singletary would be an ideal mentor.

4. Jaguars. Jacksonville could use another box-office draw. Vick would fit well as David Garrard's backup and Maurice Jones-Drew's Wildcat-mate.

5. Dolphins. They have a bold front-office personality (Bill Parcells) and a well-suited offensive package (Wildcat).

6. Seahawks. If injuries hamper Matt Hasselbeck, Vick would make intriguing insurance, especially given his experience under coach Jim Mora and coordinator Greg Knapp.

7. Chargers. San Diego is loaded with skilled and speedy playmakers, and Vick would offer even more offensive versatility.

8. Patriots. They don't appear to be interested, but that might change if Miami is in pursuit.

9. Jets. The media blitz would ease some pressure on rookie QB Mark Sanchez.

10. Vikings. Vick would come a lot cheaper than Brett Favre.

11. Bengals. They have a habit of giving skilled but troubled players second and third chances.

12. Cowboys. They could use another weapon for their new Wildcat attack.

13. Buccaneers. They collect quarterbacks, and Vick has more talent than them all.

14. Browns. Vick in the Dawg Pound? It isn't farfetched if Cleveland's QB battle fizzles.

15. Texans. It would be an interesting twist if Vick got a chance to become Matt Schaub's backup.

16. Panthers. Considering Jake Delhomme's playoff struggles, it wouldn't be so crazy for them to sign their old nemesis as insurance.

17. Rams. They don't really have a solid backup, and Vick would seem to work well in their new offense.

18. Chiefs. They paid big money to lock up Matt Cassel, but they need more athletes on offense.

19. Broncos. They can't necessarily pin their future on Kyle Orton and Chris Simms, but they could do without more negative buzz.

20. Cardinals. If that other lefthanded quarterback doesn't show much as a backup, they might want to push him with another.

21. Ravens. Probably not, because they already have Troy Smith as a versatile athlete for Wildcat-like formations.

22. Lions. They already have a temporary starter (Daunte Culpepper) in front of Matthew Stafford.

23. Bears. Unless he moved to wide receiver, Vick doesn't fit here.

24. Eagles. With Donovan McNabb, they are a strong contender and don't need the controversy.

25. Saints. New Orleans already is overflowing with skill players.

26. Packers. Vick's big Lambeau moment will continue to be his playoff win there.

27. Bills. Getting both Terrell Owens and Vick would give them attention-overload disorder.

28. Titans. They already have a controversial quarterback with a similar playing style.

29. Colts. Tony Dungy is a big supporter, but his former team just isn't a fit for Vick.

30. Giants. There is no need for them to shake up the locker-room karma.

31. Steelers. The Super Bowl champions already are dealing with a No. 7 getting the wrong kind of headlines.

32. Falcons. They already have proved they can win without him.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was noncommittal when asked Friday about a potential interest in Michael Vick.

Tomlin's answer was downright Belichick-ian: "I'll say this, we'll be prudent and do our due diligence as far as exploring people that could potentially help us win, guys who can throw, run, catch, block, tackle on a professional level."

Vegas oddsmakers have made the Patriots and Steelers the favorites to sign Vick, largely because the organizations are so stable and the head coaches have a strong handle on the team.

Rumors swirled about Vick meeting with the Steelers Friday. And they were fueled in part by a caller to a Pittsburgh radio station who claimed to be a cab driver that had driven the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback from the airport to the team's South Side practice facility.

There is no indication that the Steelers met with or worked out Vick yesterday, and Tomlin said, "I'm in Latrobe and everybody else in our organization is."

I don't see any NFL team signing him at this point in time. No OTA's, no mini camps, and no games for two years?

No way.

Well, other than maybe Al Davis.

Not going to happen. The Raiders turned him down already.

The Patriots seem to have some legitimate interest...throw him into the mix and that offense could be more explosive than the 08 team.

He should try to go to San Francisco if Possible. They have no solid QB that can take them through the year and keep them in the playoff hunt.

Tavarious Jackson just got hurt in Minnesota........

MCL sprain for Tarvaris
Posted by Mike Florio on August 1, 2009 1:22 PM ET
A league source tells us that Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has undergone an MRI to gauge the extent of the damage he suffered today during a training-camp scrimmage.

Per the source, Jackson suffered an MCL sprain.

Initial word is that it's only a Grade I sprain, and that Tarvaris might be day-to-day.

If it's Grade II or worse, however, Jackson likely would miss multiple weeks -- which likely would make Sage Rosenfels the Week One starter by default.

Meanwhile, we're still wondering why in the hell defensive lineman Letroy Guion's body made contact with the red-shirted Jackson.

"I don't know," Guion told Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press regarding the cause of the injury. "It was the heat of the moment. Things were moving fast."

Apparently, the Vikings would be wise to replace the red jersey with a portable plastic bubble.

The Pats are perfect...they have no scruples and will, quite literally, do ANYTHING to win. Vick is a perfect match for them...

Damn, Tarvaris Jackson is hurt. Another running QB who can't hit the broad side of a barn with a pass. Why do NFL teams keep doing this when IT DOESN"T WORK? It boggles the mind. They should have grabbed someone like Jeff Garcia when they had the chance. Michael Vick is s joke.

Cross the Brownies off the list.

* Any interest in Michael Vick. “We don’t,” Mangini said. “I’m happy with our group of guys.”
