Vick likely to have many suitors in 2010

    As I detailed when QB Michael Vick signed with the Eagles, this was always set up to be a one-year marriage, as by the very nature of the contract. The Eagles won’t be picking up the big contract option for 2010, according to sources, or at least do not plan to. They will explore trade options for Vick during the window they have to do so in March before deciding whether or not to pick up his option.

    Sources close to Vick fully anticipate him playing elsewhere in 2010, and say he is intent on being a starter if at all possible. Such opportunities should arise. Clubs to keep a close eye on include Buffalo, St. Louis, Carolina, Oakland and Jacksonville. Those teams are in the market for QB help, and many have struggled to sell tickets and attract attention in recent years, with their smaller-market status.

    Vick’s cause will be helped as well by the weak free-agent class of quarterbacks — Daunte Culpepper could be the class of that group, for instance — as well as an upcoming draft without prospects who seem ready to play right away. Whether teams opt to wade in heavily for Vick on the trade market remains to be seen, but if he hit the market as a free agent, league sources expect at least a half-dozen or so teams to have legitimate interest.

    Out of the teams listed I would have to say the most likely would be the Raiders. Al Davis likes the long ball and that I think that is still something Vick can excell at.

    Not entirely accurately, but yes, he can heave it still.

    Out of those teams listed I could see Oakland and maybe Buffalo.

    Carolina has their QB of the future, and if they hadn't wasted all that money on Jake last offseason it would be the QB of the present in Matt Moore. They will not be interested in Mike Vick.

    Nor will Jacksonville who I believe, IIRC, gave Garrad a nice contract extention last summer so they're not going to be looking to bring in Mike Vick either.

    St. Louis might be but I've got a feeling that's a no as well. Just a hunch there though.

    I agree. Matt Moore should be a shoe in for the starters job the kid looked great, I'm happy for him.

    As for St. Louis I don't see Vick fitting their offense but with the Raiders and Long Bomb Al Davis which is why they went after all these speed WR in the 1st place, not to mention the fact with the money they already have invested in Russell they could get Vick at a low price to ease some of their pain

    Honestly, I can't see any team being able to do anything with Mike Vick as a starter. It's not even because I don't like the guy, but does he even present a threat as QB anymore? Maybe he could be effective in Miami ahead of Pat White and behind Chad Henne in Wildcat? But I guess they really don't need him with Pat White and Tyler Thigpen. The Buffalo Bills don't need him, just get a line to block for Trent Edwards. St. Louis needs a QB, but I'd take Culpepper over him any day of the week these days, and Carolina has their QB of the future. David Garrard is going to stay in Jacksonville forever now and become their version of our Vinny Testaverde and Oakland just needs to tell JaMarcus Russell to drop his balls and become a man. Washington or Philadelphia are the only two places I could realistically see him playing in next year if he wants to be an NFL QB. He probably wouldn't start in either one.

    I seriously doubt he'll have many options, and I doubt even more anyone will trade anything for his rights if the Eagles exercise their option.

    I know some clods just dont want to see it, but Vick is simply not a good QB, period.

    I agree. I do however think he is good at throwing the long ball and running which made me think of Al Davis and what he likes. I don't think Vick would fit in with most programs out there but I have a feeling he could fit in to what Al Davis likes

    I don't see the Raiders going after him.

    Russell sucks. Fierce.

    But Davis loves him. And he'll give him every opportunity to continually flunk himself, until his contract expires.

    Jacksonville, for ticket sales, would be a possibility. But not sure if Del Rio wants to take on Vick.... Buffalo would be intriguing, I think. Wonder if they'd bring Owens back. Vick would have better WRs than he's ever had in Buffalo if Owens is back.

    Lee Evans is still the most underrated WR in the NFL, hes a fantastic WR and very few even knows he exists.
