The draft may be now just four days away, but there is still a player that on the minds of the Falcons that they would love to have moved by draft day – Michael Vick. The imprisoned QB remains a hot topic, and the Falcons are hoping they will get some calls about his rights as draft day nears.
“Possibly, but we are focusing on the whole franchise as far as the roster,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said earlier today. “As you know we are always open to entertaining offers and have discussions about players on this roster.”
The birds have been dangling Vick’s rights out there for sometime with no luck, but are hoping they can use him as some sort of bait with a team that wants to take a longshot on him once he gets out of prison and back into the league. As far as the first round goes, Atlanta holds the 24th overall pick.
Vick is set to be a free man in July, but won’t be in a Falcons uni anytime soon, likely never again if the Falcons can get him moved somewhere. “I think it’s important to understand with Michael right now, that we are kind of anchored in and focused on the draft, but if someone does want to discuss Michael Vick with us we’ll definitely entertain the discussions during the draft,” Dimitroff said.
