Report: Vick's contract with Steelers has no guarantees, no signing bonus

Michael Vick was waiting all offseason to get a call from an NFL team. After finally getting one, he apparently didn't have much negotiating leverage. Vick's one-year contract calls for $970,000 in base pay, and nothing else, according to a report from NJ.com. There is no signing bonus, and no guaranteed money. It's a far cry from the millions Vick made earlier in his career, a just...

However, we do as a group have a tendency to overreact to things, even when they have little impact on us....

Signing Michael Vick is the right move for Steelers

If it weren’t for Michael Vick’s past, his signing Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Steelers would be nothing more than six-point agate type in the newspaper.
