Default Atlanta trying to trade rights to Vick

No mention of Raiders interest, surprisingly

Quote:
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP)—Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff said Friday the Falcons will try to trade the contract rights on Michael Vick to another team.

In an interview that appeared on the team’s Web site, Dimitroff said, “With regards to Michael Vick, we’ve decided to seek a trade of his contractual rights to another NFL club.”

Vick is currently in federal prison on felony charges related to dogfighting and is scheduled to be released in July.

Vick has a contract that runs to 2013 and calls for him to receive a base salary of $9 million and a bonus of $6.43 million in 2009. The remainder of the contract is worth $45.11 million, with another possible $3 million in Pro Bowl bonuses.

“We feel a trade is the best move for the Falcons, and it’s also in the best interest for Michael,” Dimitroff said. “This has been a really unique situation from a variety of standpoints and because we will actively be involved in a trade situation, I don’t envision our organization speaking any more about this subject publicly until it’s reached a resolution.”

He said the Falcons have had no discussions with other teams because Vick is under suspension by the NFL, “but we think some teams might be interested in exploring a trade.”

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello Friday reiterated commissioner Roger Goodell’s statement when he suspended Vick on Aug. 24 2007 that he will review Vick’s status when legal proceedings are done.

Vick’s attorneys did not immediately return e-mail or telephone messages left at their offices.

Dimitroff said if the Falcons are unable to complete a trade, they will re-evaluate. He said a decision would be made that is in the best interest of the team.

The Falcons made a move last year for a quarterback, taking Boston College’s Matt Ryan as their first round draft choice. He was last year’s rookie of the year after leading the Falcons to the playoffs.

If there is a GM out there stupid enough to go for this, they should be fired on the spot.

Lions, he puts butts in the seats.

Seahawks? They need something to energize their offense.

Bears, aren't they dying for any type of QB up in the Windy City?

Jets? I mean, they took a chance on Favre, why not Vick? Clemens clearly isn't the answer.

Cowboys! HA HA HA! Please, Jerry Jones, pick up Michael Vick, that would be effing priceless.

Redskins could use a play maker on offense.

Raiders? Al is pretty crazy, who knows. Its not like Peta will show up at Raiders games.

Rams? That is a very fast field in St Louis. Split Vick out, throw him some screens, see what happens?

Titans? They already have one head case QB that can't get on the field, why not a second?

Jags, was Gerrad ever the answer really?

Texans...actually no, they don't need drama.

Browns? I mean, I'd love to see our Defense smash in Vick's brains twice a year.

Bills? They got nothing in Buffalo, they've been pretty much without a serious QB since Kelly retired. The 2 fools they've been going with have not gotten the job done at all.

Tampa Bay? Oh wait, Gruden was fired.

Vick would be a good fit for the Bungles. None of their backup QB's are any good, and he can be used as a running back. He also has a criminal record. Mike Brown doesn't care about character, and has been known to give troubled players second, third, and even fourth chances.

In further developments....an undislosed team has started negotions for the rights to Michael Vick.

John Clayton is reporting on ESPN that the team in question has offered a boil on the ass of its owner as straight-up compensation for Vick.

It is unk which position the boil will play.
