Quarterback Michael Vick’s career with the Philadelphia
Eagles is most likely over, and Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports offers potential
landing spots for the veteran playmaker, including the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland
Browns, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals.
While the Bills denied interest in Vick in 2009 when the
quarterback became available, he insists that they were one of his suitors.
Buffalo is one of the several NFL teams in need of a quarterback, as Ryan
Fitzpatrick has proven “a nice player, but hardly a franchise guy,” according
Cole says the connection between the Browns and Vick is
former Eagles president Joe Banner, who’s now running the show in Cleveland.
Also, Banner is reportedly “lukewarm at best” on rookie quarterback Brandon
Vick could boost ticket sales for the Jets, and they’ve
shown that they’re daring and potentially desperate following the season they’ve
had. Meanwhile, the Cardinals may have the worst quarterback situation of all
32 NFL teams.
Cole concludes by saying Vick could wind up going nowhere
but instead remaining in Philly. While coach Andy Reid is all but guaranteed to
get the boot after the season, Cole believes the new regime will get to make
the call on Vick’s future.
