As stated below in the Washington Post, it appears to former Colts coach Tony Dungy that Michael Vick is about on the verge of being on an NFL roster soon:
Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, who agreed to serve as an adviser and mentor to recently reinstated quarterback Michael Vick, said on NBC’s Sunday night broadcast of the Hall of Fame Game that he expects Vick to sign with an NFL team soon. Dungy did not identify any teams that might be pursuing Vick, but said: “He’s talked to several teams and he has several teams interested…. I think something may happen here pretty shortly.” Asked later if he anticipates that Vick’s signing could come within the next week or so, Dungy said: “I think that’s what’s gonna happen. He’s talked to several teams. We’ve kicked around several scenarios…. I just feel it’s gonna come pretty quick here.”
So like it or not for those that have been leaving comments right and left that Vick should never be allowed to play in the league again, it looks as if it’s going to happen.
The question now is – where?
The Packers have been a team that actually admitted to having interest, and it seems that all of a sudden they are the true front runners to the Vick sweepstakes. Pittsburgh was rumored to have some interest, but they have never said much at all about Vick.
Same for the Pats, who seem to be just fine with Tom Brady getting close to form running an offense that was record breaking two years ago. The Raiders could always be a darkhorse, and I still think the Jacksonville Jaguars could have some interest as well.
It appears that if Dungy is right, we’ll find the answer to the Vick saga of where he goes very soon, and the PR nightmare for that team will for sure get underway.
