I read an article a while ago that one NFL GM said that everyone should count on him returning as there are plenty of desperate teams out there. Also, the Falcons were trying to trade his rights away so they are trying to get rid of him. I hope to see him back even though he was such a dick. He was a great QB who had a good arm and had double the speed of some QB's.

the only thing about vick that made him so much better than other qb's was his speed and ability to run the ball

But he was actually a black QB that could pass the ball instead of rushing all day unlike other one-dimensional players like Vince Yong

what about Donovan McNabb, he was a pretty decent black QB. Culpepper had his moments when he threw to Moss.

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said the team relinquished its contractual rights to Vick on Friday.
"Michael remains suspended by the NFL," Dimitroff said. "However, in the event NFL commissioner Roger Goodell decides to reinstate Michael, we feel his best opportunity to re-engage his football career would be at another club."
The move was no surprise. Owner Arthur Blank has said Vick would not return to the Falcons.
Goodell has not committed to reinstating Vick after the quarterback completes his 23-month sentence on July 20 for running a dogfighting ring. Vick has been on home confinement in Virginia since leaving federal prison in Kansas on May 20.
Even while making it clear Vick had no football future with the Falcons, Blank has said he would be available to assist Vick.
"Our entire organization sincerely hopes that Michael will continue to focus his efforts on making positive changes in his life, and we wish him well in that regard," Dimitroff said Friday.
Vick was the Falcons No. 1 draft pick in 2001. He played six seasons with the team, but the Falcons moved on by making quarterback Matt Ryan their No. 1 pick last year. Ryan started every game as a rookie and led the Falcons to the playoffs.
Vick was the figurehead for the Falcons and, as a dual-threat quarterback, was one of the NFL's most dynamic stars from 2001-2006 before his sudden downfall.
Goodell said last month he would not make a decision on Vick before the end of his sentence.
"Once he's concluded that, I will make a judgment based on what he tells me and what I can determine from speaking to others and a final background check on this and make a determination at the right time," Goodell said.
Speculation about Vick's NFL future started even before his release from the Falcons.
Jim Mora, whose Vick-led team advanced to the NFC Championship Game in 2003, said this week he doesn't expect Vick to find a job with his Seattle team.
"I'll just say this for the record: We are very happy with the quarterbacks we have on our roster," Mora said. "We have no intentions of adding another player to our roster at this time. ... Just cut out the 'at this time,' because then people will speculate for the next three months. We have no intentions of adding a quarterback to our roster."
Even as he hopes for reinstatement from Goodell and begins his search for another NFL home, Vick faces other pressing priorities, including his crumbled finances.
On Tuesday, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro set a July 2 deadline for Vick to submit a revised Chapter 11 plan. A hearing to confirm or reject the plan was set for Aug. 27.
Santoro said that if the new plan fails to address the shortcomings that prompted him to reject the first one in April, he will appoint an independent trustee to take over management of Vick's finances.

---------------------------

Well we all knew this was happenning, but now he is officially able to sign with other teams, where will he go? The 49ers have already said that they don't want him. Raiders, Vikings, Broncos?

just watched this really interesting discussion on vick where they were saying that if he came back he would be basically a utility.


they were saying that you could use him as a running back, a slot back, a wide reciever or a QB.... when you think about it for a while it could work but it would take a lot of time to get used to...

he just has to go to a franchise that has an established QB and that way he can just add a bit of spark to the team. could be a great way to trick up the defence if you had him as a running back and then he could run it then have a throw everynow and then

Haha, thats kinda true. He's fast enough for all the positions, maybe they can take full advantage of the Wildcat offense with him, and not lose the qualities of a normal WR/RB. In that case, any team that is desperate enough to ruin their reputation anymore (Raiders) can take him.

The biggest question hovering over the Michael Vick situation is, obviously, whether or not the suspended quarterback will be cleared to play in the NFL this coming season. The logical tangent to that is, well, then where the heck will he play?
There has been very little contact between NFL teams and Vick’s agent to this point, according to league sources, and that’s not a surprise. Every team wants to play its cards close to the vest — that’s pretty much the MO for anything related to Vick these days — and until or unless the guy is reinstated, well, there isn’t much to pursue. I spoke to several coaches and personnel executives about the situation, and some would be stunned if Vick isn’t signed quickly and acting as a backup QB in 2009 if allowed to play. Others really believe the interest in Vick will be scant, and he will first have to prove himself in the UFL.


I spoke to probably 10 people about the Vick situation, and they seemed to agree on two things:
1) Vick is a QB.
Maybe he plays a Wildcat role and has something of a slash element to his game, but Vick has been a QB all his life, he thinks like a QB and he is training to return as a QB. Are there really 96 QBs betters than him out there? “He’s a quarterback ,and if you bring him in, you have to let him play quarterback, at least in some capacity,” one executive said. “All that stuff about being a running back or a receiver, you heard the media talking about that, but I don’t think you really hear scouts or football people talking about that.”
2) It will take an owner with some, how shall we say this … fortitude, to sign him.
This is no ordinary personnel move, as it carries with it so much potential risk and baggage, from a PR standpoint, etc. Vick’s crime — bankrolling a dogfighting operation — is something that deeply resonated with people in all walks of life and inspires great debate. A team has to be willing to get beyond that criticism and fallout if it’s going to bring in Vick, particularly if it happens shortly after he’s reinstated.
So, with all of that in mind, there are several teams that, in the football community, people are discussing as possibilities for Vick. Now, as a disclaimer, these are just educated guesses. As I said, there has been no real contact between teams and Vick. But some teams are mentioned by the various coaches and execs more than others, not that it means it will happen.

So here are the teams that these guys thought could end up in the hunt for Vick, in no particular order:
Dallas — Owner Jerry Jones is someone who’s willing to give troubled players a shot. He isn’t afraid to face criticism and, while some pointed out that post-Pac Man Jones, the Cowboys might not want to go in this direction, it is a team that people are watching. “Jerry is a gambler,” one member of the organization said. “If he feels like there is a player who could help him win, he’s willing to gamble. I don’t know that I could unilaterally rule it out.”
Oakland — Owner Al Davis is an iconoclast. He deals with intense criticism all the time, with the franchise falling on hard times in recent years. He’s fearless and that “Just win baby” mentality has long led to the Raiders being a prime destination for reclamation projects, sometimes with great results. Oakland invested a lot in JaMarcus Russell, but the QB situation remains unresolved. Vick has a big arm and tremendous athletic ability, things Davis has always coveted.
Jacksonville — David Garrard has had some big games and good seasons, but this is an offense in need of a spark. Changes could be coming in the coaching ranks if the Jaguars don’t bounce back in 2009, and this also is a market where selling tickets and attracting attention has been difficult, even despite their success on the field. It’s a small market, so the media glare wouldn’t be as intense (though for the first few weeks, this would remain a huge national story, don’tcha think?).
Miami — Bill Parcells can handle pretty much anything, and I never got the sense that he gave a damn about what people had to say about his football team. The Dolphins use the Wildcat more than any other club it seems, and they used a second-round draft pick on Pat White, who could shine in that package. With so many mainstream pop stars joining the ownership group, I’m not sure I personally see this one happening, but scouts and coaches know Parcells can get the best out of talent.
New England — Pretty much all of the above is said here, too, except substitute Bill Belichick, a Parcells guy, and drop the ownership stuff. The Patriots took on Randy Moss, and everyone finds a way to fit in with the way Belichick constructs and demands a team-first ethos. No one is displacing Tom Brady, but as we know, injuries occur, and Vick would be an interesting backup. And Belichick definitely is a genius when it comes to maximizing the assets of his players (Troy Brown at defensive back, anyone?).
Cincinnati — Owner Mike Brown is another person not afraid to take risks (he was the first owner I can think of to hire a newspaper guy, Geoff Hobson, and let him cover the team with few restrictions for the club’s Web site, now a common practice). The organization has taken heat for troubled players in the past and tried to shed that some, but Vick is a special talent, and we’re not talking about him taking Carson Palmer’s job, but being a backup or situational guy. This organization could use a boost in profile and attendance, too.
San Francisco — Another team with a starting QB situation up in the air, and one that some believe lacks a long-term solution at the position. Coach Mike Singletary commands respect from anyone and everyone going back to his playing days. The 49ers are among several teams that, in published reports, have declined having any interest in Vick, but there continues to be a sense among some football people that San Francisco could make sense. Also, I wouldn’t expect any team to publicly acknowledge wanting Vick, especially before he is reinstated, if he is reinstated. This city could be one where backlash is high, however.
Cleveland — The Browns run the Wildcat — and Josh Cribbs, their Wildcat guy, could be a camp holdout — and some execs wonder if they have a solid starting QB on their roster right now.
New Orleans — A few execs mentioned that Vick might end up having a chance as a backup there. Coach Sean Payton would have to alter the system some for him if Drew Brees got hurt, but a Vick/Reggie Bush Wildcat-type backfield would be something, eh?
There also are two teams that are mentioned a lot in this capacity but where I have been told there isn’t real interest. Baltimore runs the Wildcat, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has used guys like Antwaan Randle El and Brian Mitchell at QB in the past, and Ravens QB coach Hue Jackson has a strong relationship with Vick. Ray Lewis runs the locker room, and there is no shortage of strong figures in the organization, like Ozzie Newsome, who could mentor Vick. But according to sources there, it’s highly unlikely. Troy Smith, who runs the Ravens’ Wildcat, made the biggest gains of anyone on the team this offseason, and according to a source, they really like young QB John Beck as well. It’s not something they are planning to pursue.
Also, Tampa Bay was mentioned a lot, largely because it, too, has an unsettled quarterback situation. A member of that organization said he doubted the Buccaneers would inquire about Vick, however, with Josh Freeman seen as the future there, and they already have enough quarterbacks in camp.
Ultimately, it only takes one team to get it done, and personally, I think there will be a club for Vick if/when he is allowed back in the league. No one will tip their hand too much, and often the team comes out of nowhere (how many people had Terrell Owens bound for Buffalo?). It’s hard to rule anyone in or out at this point, with so much still undecided.

On the same day that Michael Vick was in a Virginia court for bankruptcy proceedings, speculation about where he may earn his next paycheck began to heat up.

new nfl.widgets.VideoPlayer({ contentId: "09000d5d8119609a", related: "home", adSetting: "1", dartURL: "http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/nfl.special/blog/news;s1=blog;s2=news;slot=inpage;nfl=ad;tile=3;sz=640x360;ord=?", playerName: "blog_embedded", size: "inline", uniqid: "09000d5d8119609a"})


On Thursday, Vick told reporters he was close to signing with a pro team. That same day, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick praised Vick’s abilities as a football player, leading to speculation that the team may be interested in the recently reinstated quarterback. On Friday, Belichick was asked whether he or the organization had ruled out such a move.

Belichick responded by dancing around the question as only he could.
“Have we ruled it out? I don’t know that it’s ruled in or ruled out” said Belichick. “I’m not not answering your question. I’m saying I don’t think it’s ever been put that way, so I can’t really answer that.”
Belichick was then asked directly if he would be interested in signing Vick.
“You know I think we would consider…” said Belichick. “We’re coaching the players that we have on the field right now, so that’s who is here. So, anybody who isn’t here is there potential that they could be here? Yeah, there probably is. But right now they’re not.
“We’re coaching the 80 players that are here, so until we get somebody else, we’re coaching them. When we get somebody else in here, which I’m sure at some point we will, then we’ll coach them and the players that are here. Who that’s going to be? Right now, it’s the 80 players who are here. That’s all I can tell you.”

-------------------------

We thought this would never be a possiblilty. Vick to the pats??? Vick said himself that he was close to signing with a team, and Belichick once again has said a whole lot of shit in a press-conference. He would be a good backup for Brady especially with his chance of getting an injury rising. They do have a good young prospect in Kevin O Connell in there also.

i still don't recon he will sign with a team who has a good starting QB. i think a team with a decent but not good starter he will sign with...Vikings? or Bills? for examples.
