Re: Ed: Tomlin Wanted to Sign Vick With Steelers
I remember hearing Tony Dungy talking about this topic on Colin Cowherd (I assume that it was Cowherd, since I listen to him every morning, and it was on ESPN's morning radio).
Dungy said that the Steelers were one of the final three teams that were "considering" Vick.
Dungy was in Vick's corner, and was lobbying with teams to give Vick a chance. Since The Rooneys had a close bond with Dungy, he had them "thinking it over."
I remember that this was around the same time as a mulititude of "trade BB" rumors... and being scared that the Steelers would sign Vick, and trade BB for Asomugha (or some other random trade).
Then, the Steelers came out & proclaimed it all to be merely "considering" (as opposed to anything "real").
