Michael Vick has a team interested in his services once he’s reinstated in the NFL. Problem is – it’s not an NFL team. Yes, Vick has been offered a roster spot by the Albany Firebirds, an arenafootball2 franchise. Word is Vick’s been offered a one-year contract at the league standard: $200 a week plus a $50 bonus for a win.
The Falcons shopped the 28-year-old QB around this past weekend for a 7th round draft pick, but found no takers. He quarterbacked the Falcons for six seasons before being convicted of bankrolling an interstate dog fighting business. Right now it’s not even official if Vick will even have his suspension lifted. Vick goes from federal prison to home confinement next month.
The Firebirds’ contract offer requires that Vick donate $100,000 to a local humane society.
