Could the UFL in Michael Vick’s Future?

Mike Vick may have a future in football afterall.

If no NFL teams call upon Vick then the newly formed United Football League will accept him with open arms.

The UFL starts its inuagural season in October and if Vick were to join the league, he would play for Orlando. This is because all four teams in the league are able to claim players who are not under contract in the NFL, Orlando has claimed Vick.

This does not mean the former star will play in the UFL or in any other league for that matter.

The commissioner, Michael Huyghue, said the league would be willing to give Vick a chance, as long as all of his legal issues are settled.

“One of the things that is important in our premiere season is to showcase the quality of talent and the coaches, and to be able to show outstanding players who find themselves in this quagmire the NFL creates, Michael Vick might be that kind of player because he is a phenomenal talent, but he needs transitionining back into the NFL,” said Huyghue.

The new league only has four teams so far, Orlando, Las Vegas, New York and San Francisco, but hope to land big names like Vick and other former NFL players in order to give their league recognition.

The UFL did not comment on whether or not they would take other players with legal issues, such as Plaxico Burress.

Thought it is doubtful that Vick will ever play in the UFL, it will be interesting to see if the league will last longer than the XFL did.
