Falcons Wanted a 7th Round Pick for Vick – Found No Takers

vick
The shopping around of QB Michael Vick continued over the draft weekend for the Falcons, and reports are they found no takers. Word is the Falcons were willing to give up the former first-round QB for a 7th round pick, and it didn’t happen.

The issue may not even be the pick, it may be that Vick is due to make a base salary of $9 million upon his return to the NFL. So a new deal would have to be in place with his new team. Still at the end of the day some team is going to take a risk on Vick, and when they do, it’s going to be a PR nightmare for that club.

    The guy has paid his crime. Let him play.

  2. Aaron says:

    I agree with Ivan totally, if a guy worked for a buisness and did a great job at it like vick did in the NFL. If that guy did a crime after he was done with his jail time he would be re instated for sure,let him play

    Free Mike Vick!!!

  4. Steve says:

    If L. Little is reinstated after vehicular homicide while drunk, how can Vick be denied a second chance?

  5. Ralph says:

    He did his time. More than he should have.
    Let him play. Vick is the all time NFL all around player.

    Michael Vick has showed absolutely no remorse for what he did to those poor dogs, drowned them, hung them, abandoned some for his entertainment. I am glad that he must pay for all of the dogs that were confiscated on his “horror” property. I will never purchase a ticket to see him play anywhere not even minor league. He is a disgusting human being….street smart and a real wise guy. I don’t feel one bit sorry for him, he did it to himself!
