Vick-To-Pats Theory Gaining Momentum

There’s been a theory making the rounds in the media that the New England Patriots could be a perfect destination for former Falcons quarterback Mike Vick.
Previously, we’d brushed off such speculation, since we believe (and we’ve been told) that Vick will be looking for a place where he can compete for the starting quarterback job.
In New England, that wouldn’t be happening — barring another Tom Brady ACL eruption.
But we’re now hearing that there could be something to the chatter, primarily since it’s appearing more and more likely that Vick won’t have many/any options to compete for the every-down quarterback job in 2009.
Under those circumstances, sending Vick to New England for a year could help Vick position himself to become an attractive candidate for another team in 2010.
Of course, this would require coach Bill Belichick to be willing to sign Vick to a one-year deal only.  If Belichick goes out on a limb for the man who previously hanged a dog or two from one, the Patriots likely will want to have the option to keep him beyond 2009.
Vick, on the other hand, presumably would like to parlay a stint with the Pats into something bigger and better, as soon as possible.
So if the Pats insist on something more than a one-year contract, Vick likely will look to a team where, come 2010, he would have a crack at unseating the incumbent.  The Rams, who reportedly are interested in Vick, might give him the best chance in this regard, since current starter Marc Bulger predates both G.M. Billy Devaney and head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

    how can VICK sign with anyone, is he not still indefinitely suspended by the league

  2. DarthPirate says: Jun 12, 2009 6:50 PM

    As soon as the Patriots sign him they will be praised endlessly for it. Because you know, they’re the Patriots!

  3. PackAttack says: Jun 12, 2009 7:00 PM

    I think I would rather read about Brett Favre then Mike Vick.

  4. empty13 says: Jun 12, 2009 7:00 PM

    well one would have to imagine that belecheat would like nothing better than to jam his version of the wildcat up the fins.
    but is the vick baggage and rep and failings as a player all something one can look past… just cause he may have given up dogfighting doesnt mean the other turdiness is all gone.

  5. Insomniac says: Jun 12, 2009 7:01 PM

    Didn’t Bob Kraft just give an interview saying he told his people if they have to bring in players with off field troubles to compete/win then he doesn’t want to be in that business?

  6. LovinBlue says: Jun 12, 2009 7:01 PM

    I had no idea that there was a scenario under which my disdain for the Patriots could actually grow, but this is surely it.

  7. Hardrada says: Jun 12, 2009 7:07 PM

    Does Belichick actually enjoy the Prince of Darkness meme? I guess we’ll have to wait to find out…

  8. angstcafe says: Jun 12, 2009 7:08 PM

    Can Vick play LB? I can’t see the Pats signing – only because they don’t need him – so why waste the roster spot and then deal with sideshow.

  9. jjared1101 says: Jun 12, 2009 7:10 PM

    “If Belichick goes out on a limb for the man who previously hanged a dog or two from one, …. ”
    You really had to say that ?

  10. dickshotdogs says: Jun 12, 2009 7:12 PM

    That’s right Pirate. Everything they touch turns to gold. Don’t forget to draft Fred Taylor, Joey Galloway and Greg Lewis in your fantasy drafts. You’ll be a sure fire winner! Heck, you might even want to consider Chris Baker at tight end! :)

  11. Scout says: Jun 12, 2009 7:13 PM

    Are the Patriots still owned by Bob Kraft? You know, the Bob Kraft who relinquished a draft pick after it was found out he beat his girlfriend? And the one that wouldn’t tolerate a special teams star after a domestic violence incident? THAT Bob Kraft is going to allow Belichick to sign a dog killer and have PETA protest his businesses every single day from now on?
    Don’t freakin’ think so.

  12. bluenoser says: Jun 12, 2009 7:17 PM

    Yeah, they are going to bring him in to run the Copy Cat.
    Right. Like Bob Kraft is going to let that happen. They have an AWESOME offense already and need to build their LB’s up a bit first.

  13. Tempus fugit says: Jun 12, 2009 7:26 PM

  15. Kidekk says: Jun 12, 2009 7:30 PM

    I’ll admit, even though it was a gimme, that line about him hanging dogs from a limb or two made me chuckle.

  16. Facts Domino says: Jun 12, 2009 7:34 PM

    If this poor excuse of a human plays one more down in the NFL, it will be a sad day for the NFL because this POS doesn’t deserve to play in the NFL.

  17. westclaims says: Jun 12, 2009 7:37 PM

    Dead on Darthpirate…it will be a blessing to the whole community, blah blah blah. In fact, if the Patriots really do want him, watch this get pushed through the way Pacman did in little D.

  18. Insomniac says: Jun 12, 2009 7:38 PM

    Rough Transcript:
    Dale Arnold: How much does character figure in to the acquisition and ultimate signing and resigning of New England Patriot football players?
    Robert Kraft: That’s a very big part of it. I saw all kinds of situations in my early years. When I hired Pete Carroll and then Bill Belichick, those are the two coaches that I have hired since I’ve been in the NFL. I said to each of them, the only thing that’s important to me. Is that we not have thugs and hoodlums here and if we need that to win then I’m getting out of the business. People in this region of the country are not willing to forgive the way people in other areas of the country are and if we’re responsible for bringing someone here to this region who has a past history of abusing women and then they come to this marketplace and do it then shame on us. We want to win but we don’t want to win so badly that we’re going to compromise certain values. You know when you understand that this is the ultimate team sport. And people are responsible to other people. And we’re gonna have our problems that doesn’t mean certain things are going to happen but that at the basic core we want good guys, good guys who can subjugate their egos for the good of the team and feel a responsibility to the brand and the team that they’re proud to be part of it.

  20. sandiegophishman says: Jun 12, 2009 7:41 PM

    I would love to see Vick play for the Patriots. Better yet, make him a Jet. Just a little more fuel in the fire for the AFC East Champs!

  21. SeanMartin says: Jun 12, 2009 7:45 PM

    Hasn’t he fumbled it something like 50-70 times in his career? That should scare anyone and everyone.

  22. tj.52 says: Jun 12, 2009 7:47 PM

    This makes sense only if you have absolutely no knowledge of the New England Patriots organization. Take these facts into consideration:
    1) Michael Vick is not Corey Dillon.
    2) Randy Moss did not viciously kill helpless animals for fun.
    3) Do not try to draw comparisons to the three, there aren’t any.
    4) The Patriots have a very popular and widely known personnel policy that states – “we want tough, smart guys who love the game of football”. – Vick just does not fit the mold.
    5) Bob Kraft wants nothing to do with Vick.
    6) Belichick wouldn’t want the distraction. He didn’t want Terry Glenn, you think he would want Vick?
    7) What the hell is Vick going to play? QB? Doubt he could learn the offense (his past dicisions lead me to believe that he may not be very bright). WR? Doubt he could learn the position well enough to outplay the guys on the roster. RB? They already have a guy that likes to duck tackles. (damn, that was harsh)
    I see absolutely no reason whatsoever for the Patriots to even consider Mike Vick for a roster spot. Not gonna happen.

  23. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Jun 12, 2009 7:55 PM

    I hope they don’t sign him. I know he has done his time but he still makes me want to puke. Tom and Randy don’t need this charity case on their hands. Let him rot or play in the UFL.

  24. descendency says: Jun 12, 2009 7:57 PM

    What would he do in New England?
    We aren’t looking for a no talent QB with all the arm and no touch… Can he catch? Can he punt? can he run between the tackles? Can he rush the QB? Can he Tackle or cover?
    Tom Brady is the only one throwing passes for this team… so Vick would be what?

  25. ozinsd says: Jun 12, 2009 7:57 PM

    He should have been thrown to a pack of angry and hungry pit bulls. This guy is scum.

  26. ctpatsfan77 says: Jun 12, 2009 8:05 PM

    The Pats wouldn’t start Vick at QB even if Brady ended up on IR again; they’d go with Kevin O’Connell first seeing as he kinda, you know, actually *knows* the Patriots’ system. . . .

  27. Florio-is-a-tool says: Jun 12, 2009 8:06 PM

    The backlash by the Patriots local customer base would be too great. Ain’t gonna happen – at least in this lifetime.

  28. dlcreed says: Jun 12, 2009 8:08 PM

    You would have to live in Atlanta like I do to know this but I promise you the minute Vick gets signed there will be Vick crackheads who will want Brady benched, saying his success is all about the system, and argue for Vick to start. Any , ANY, team that signs Vick better prepare for this.

  29. RIRich says: Jun 12, 2009 8:08 PM

    With Bob Kraft’s well known lack of tolerance for criminals, I can’t imagine this story ever truly having legs; it’s got to be the fantasy of some bored sportswriter somewhere. And if Kraft somehow made an exemption – though I doubt it would be for the likes of Michael Vick – I can’t imagine Bellichik wanting a QB with the baggage and complete lack of skills that Vick brings to the table.
    That said, as a diehard Patriots fan of over forty years, I will say that if they do in fact sign Vick I will honestly say that I will have watched my last Patriots game. Period.
    I cannot support a team that supports Michael Vick, nor will many Patriots fans.
    Too much of a leap for us, can’t drink THAT kool-aid.

  30. Diggs2134 says: Jun 12, 2009 8:10 PM

    vick is an embarrassment to the league….he should be treated like the dogs he mutilated. And BTW…..he was never a good quarterback and never will be!

  31. DynastyDriven77 says: Jun 12, 2009 8:11 PM

    This is a Florio drivin story… No truth to it whatsoever

  32. PJW says: Jun 12, 2009 8:12 PM

    What would happen when Vick flips Belichick the double bird?

  33. JakeDSnake says: Jun 12, 2009 8:14 PM

    Kraft insists on charitable works clauses in his players contracts. I don’t think this happens until Vick has a deal in place with a SPCA in some state…or two.

  34. NoHomeTeam says: Jun 12, 2009 8:18 PM

    If — if — he’s reinstated and if some team is going to sign him, I think I’d be pulling for the Rams. I’d love to see that team stuck with the ensuing public relations nightmare. Not to mention, of course, the potential for football disaster, both locker-room and on-field.
    I’ll predict a turnout of about 25 people in the Edward Jones dome at the end of the season.

  35. Nate A says: Jun 12, 2009 8:30 PM

    Myra Kraft would divorce Bob Kraft and disown Jonathan Kraft if he they let this happen.

  36. Pastabelly says: Jun 12, 2009 8:30 PM

    Florio, Myra Kraft would not put up with the Patriots bringing in Vick. Also, this stuff doesn’t work in liberal media centers like Boston. It’s a non-starter and a foolish theory. The Patriots already drafted a slash/wildcat type of guy anyway.

  37. mikecal645 says: Jun 12, 2009 8:43 PM

    I don’t think the Patriots need Vick and I don’t think it would ever happen the downsides outweigh the upsides in my opinion. If they did sign him though, I’m sure he could be worked into the system to be an effective asset, I think that locker room would also keep him in line, but if he went to the Patriots he’d know it was his only shot in the NFL.
    All that stuff being said, I still think Vick should be reinstated in the league, it wouldn’t promise him a contract with anyone. Ray Lewis is still playing in the league and not in jail where he belongs for killing a person or pacman jones or ordering a shooting..

  38. prayforthesaints says: Jun 12, 2009 8:45 PM

    mike vick deserves a second chance. yes he killed dogs and yes he did go to prison for 2 years because of it. He has lost everything he owns, and never complained or spoke out against all the crimes he committed. He has pleaded guilty to all charges, and currently does manual labor for very low pay while he has a brick on his ankle. He has to repay thousands of dollars he doesnt have to people and PETA, and plans to do so. Who are we to say he doesnt deserve another chance? Who are we to say he isnt sorry? Who does PETA think they are making this broke man pay them money that he doesnt owe them? He never did anything to them. Those hippies just need to calm down and eat their soy bean chips.
    As for Vick to the Pats? Doubt it, he isn’t old enough. And Belichik is gonna say the same thing as Payton said, why use a gimmick (the wildcat) if you have a real quarterback? As for the Rams or Vikes, those are much more realistic possibilities.
    Personally, I would love to see Vick play again. He made the NFL interesting. I dont ever recall watching him play and not be amazed or entertained, usually mad too, at his skills.

  39. ken13 says: Jun 12, 2009 8:49 PM

    Why do people comment on PURE SPECULATION and RUMOR? No one remotely connected with the Patriots has said anything about there being the slightest interest in Vick…..so before all you haters crucify Belichik or Kraft….why not wait until there are actual FACTS…..oh wait…this is the Patriots….facts don’t matter……for you haters

  40. juancorsair says: Jun 12, 2009 9:04 PM

    Let’s look at the facts, shall we:
    If Mike Vick possessed even 1/3 of the talent of Tom Brady, Peyton Manning or Brett Favre, I could see a tem risking the PR backlash to give him another chance. Fortunately, Micheal Vick sucks. He can’t pass worth a damn and is two years removed from the league and any form of decent diet or training. He was overrated before he went to prison and did not improve while he was in there. Why would anyone sign this guy when QBs with better skills and without criminal records nor media sideshow following them everywhere cannot find work? Is Mike Vick ever going to make Canton? Is he ever going to take a team to the Superbowl? Will he ever have a passer rating over 50??? No, he’s not going to do any of these things. So why would the Patriots, Queens or even the Raidahhhs take a chance on this loser???

  41. olcap says: Jun 12, 2009 9:14 PM

    This would be perfect for the Cheatriots! And, it would be perfect for all good people who hate cheaters like Bill Belicheat and his ilk, like Tommy Boy, whom we’re to think was totally oblivious that the plays broadcast into his helmet and worked every time were not the product of chance, but rather of cheating.
    If anything, this would further seal the already ground-in stain of poor sportsmanship this franchise already possesses. And, it would cause Mr. Kraft, who gave his approval to the cheating by not firing Belicheat, to eat his words about not having turds on the team.

  42. Rasputin says: Jun 12, 2009 9:24 PM

    They’re only floating the rumor so Mangina picks up him.

  43. 1stngoal says: Jun 12, 2009 9:30 PM

    I think the only thing about this story that makes it plausible is the idea of using him in some “wild-cat” packages.Since the Pat’s missed out on Percy Harvin in the draft,this could conceivably be their plan B…..

  44. unclaimedfright says: Jun 12, 2009 9:49 PM

    This makes perfect sense. The Cheatriots are the Cowboys of the 90′s. A group of thugs who hide behind Superbowl rings because “winning is everything”. Vick would fit right in.

    ———————————
    Cry me a river! Vick didn’t “lose” anything – he threw it all away the day he started Bad Newz Kennels. He only pled guilty because a) both his other co-conspirators pled guilty, and b) the trial would have been incredibly damaging to Vick personally. Could you imagine the testimony of his partners?
    As for his financial problems, that just proves he’s not very bright. He signed a $130 million contract, and he’s beyond broke? Not to mention the millions he stole from the pension fund of the employees of his company – while he was in prison!
    I get so sick of the Vick apologists crying about all that he’s lost, etc. All of Vick’s problems are of his own doing. Further proof that Vick is a complete idiot. And the only thing Vick is sorry about is getting caught. He’s still be electrocuting dogs if his two cousins weren’t dumb enough to get busted.

  46. JoeSixPack says: Jun 12, 2009 11:26 PM

    Probably just Belichick floating a rumor to goad another team’s coach into making a major strategic blunder with Vick.
    I could see MangIdiot falling for that hook, line and sinker

  47. shuxion says: Jun 12, 2009 11:28 PM

    I am a PATS fan (As you all probably know because nobody can stand me here>_<……)
    Maybe the Pats signing Vick, getting him some exposure in tight goal line situations raise the value and trade for a 3rd rd pick or something. But that is after I sat there for 30 mins and tried to think of a reason.
    And the reason as you can see makes very little sense. I just don’t see them signing him. I think he goes UFL, wows a bunch of people (see Lawerence Phillips in the NFL Europe, BTW how did Steve Young like that one) and gets a shot in the NFL in 2010-2011.
    He did something sick and disgusting but he did not kill anyone (Leonard Little, and not learn you lesson) he did not beat a woman or have his kid bitten by a dog (James Harrison) which are MUCH more disgusting things to do.. The guy paid his time, he is trying to make a living and deserves a chance.
    If you have issues with Vick playing and no issues with Little or Harrison playing then your common sense is severely lacking…….and you probably vote democrat.
    On a separate topic, St. Louis sports Radio callers (What we get here in Earth City, MO) is about 50/50 on it.

  48. tdeck39 says: Jun 12, 2009 11:40 PM

    Wow shuxion….you make it sound like Harrison had his kid in a cage with the dog and made the dog go after him. It was nothing like that if you had bothered to read any of the stories. The kid’s mom let the dog out…..Harrison wasn’t even home!!

  49. Dont Taze Me Bro says: Jun 13, 2009 12:06 AM

    Listen to the Boston clowns talking about how fine and upstanding they are, how people of New england would never forgive such a person. They’re just too classy for something like that.
    How does Ted Kennedy keep getting elected? He did, in fact, KILL a woman. But he’s a Kennedy so he gets some slack.
    Myra Kraft would not put up with it? She seems flexible with employing Bill Belichick, who is a proven cheater both on the field and off the field with other men’s wives.
    They’re also pretty comfortable with keeping Nick Kaczur, who was convicted as part of an international drug smuggling ring, then turned narc to get off.
    Rodney Harrison isn’t a thug? Yeah, and David Ortiz isn’t breaking down after years of steroid abuse.

    “I think the only thing about this story that makes it plausible is the idea of using him in some “wild-cat” packages.Since the Pat’s missed out on Percy Harvin in the draft,this could conceivably be their plan B….. ”
    I dunno, but given the choice between (A) Childress pulling a fast one on Belichick, (B) Belichick punking Childress yet again, or (C) the Patriots just not wanting Harvin that badly, I’d go for (B) or (C) long before I went for (A). [If the Pats were dead-set on drafting Harvin, why tell him that, especially if they knew/suspected he might blab to other teams?]

  51. nflhof says: Jun 13, 2009 2:39 AM

    I sure hope M Vick can run a camera and make himslef useful to the team and Tom Brady. He will be needed to give them that edge the Pats have needed to win over the past years.

  52. briano29 says: Jun 13, 2009 2:45 AM

    If Belichick goes out on a limb for the man who previously hanged a dog or two from one . . . Florio, that line cracked me up. I know it shouldn’t have. But I can’t help it – its funny.

    The most entertaining comments here are from the NE fans talking about how Kraft will never stoop so low as to sign the likes of Vick.
    Meanwhile, moral bankruptcy reigns at the head coaching level with the only coach who was fined and lost a #1 draft pick for cheating.
    Please stop with the grandstanding and holier than thou pretenses. The Patriots would sign Vick in a heartbeat if he could prove to them that he can video tape without getting caught.

  55. PatsHatersBeware says: Jun 13, 2009 11:29 AM

    I think that people need to get over that whole spygate crap. Quit your whining because I’m sure whatever team you like has done similar things. Stop pretending like your teams are choir boys and are perfect. Don’t hate because our team kicks ass year in and year out. Also, all the people who wanna hang Vick for what he did. That is just ridiculous! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with what he did at all. However, it WAS dogs, an animal, not a human being! Give the guy a chance to redeem himself before you hang him again. Should he do something again, I’m sure the legal system will not be lenient. People who say that they are not gonna watch another Pats game should they sign him, well, good riddance! You are not a true fan then, so go cheer for another team. Better yet, maybe PETA will hire you.

    What good is winning 18 games when you lose the one that matters MOST. And if memory serves me correctly, both the 1985 Bears and one of the Niner teams both finished 18-1 (of course, both of those teams won when it mattered most, unlike the Pats who earned the title of “biggest choke in sports history” in their Super Bowl loss to the Giants.

    Has anyone every watched a cable show documenting hunters killing deer, lions, cape buffalo, moose, etc., etc……for SPORT??
    Just so they can take the carcass to a taxidermist and have the stuffed animal perched on the wall.
    Oh….I get it…….the law gets manipulated to bend to the will of certain animal lovers while ignoring the wishes of others…..or is it that the Dog-loving lobby has got enough money and influence behind it that they get to dictate what thye laws say regarding dogs.
    Why do we slaughter cows and pigs? Cows have their throats cut out and then they are dumped onto a slaughter house flloor until they pass out.
    In China, dogs are killed and then hung for 2-3 days so the meat gets tender before consumption.
    Vick has paid his debt to society. He has a right to get back to work. No one says bupkus when a guy beats the stuffing out of his girlfriend or wife and wants to get back to work though.

    Hey Florio,
    When you don’t have anything to write about can’t you just leave well enough alone and just say there is nothing to write about? It would be a whole lot better than making up crap like this. You are pathetic….

    This story is nothing more than a bad rumor in order to spark interest in a has-been, mediocre quarterback that has no future in the NFL. Any professional team that wastes their time and possible their fan base signing a sluggo like Vick deserves to all the negativity that surrounds him. Like them or not, the Patriots have much more class than that.
