The hot rumor today, as evidenced by 25 or more e-mails we’ve received on the topic, has been that quarterback Mike Vick was spotted on a plane to Boston’s Logan Airport.
Various versions of the rumor have been shared with us, with the details ranging from the flight occurring Thursday night to Friday morning.
The fact that the rumor was discussed on WEEI radio in Boston earlier today has done little to contain it, and the thing has now morphed into a rumor (possibly more) that Vick actually is meeting with the Patriots.
The locally popular Barstool Sports blog has ventured onto a limb on this one, reporting that Vick currently is meeting with the Patriots: “He is 100% meeting with the Pats right now,” the web site states. “That’s not a guess. That’s a fact.”
We don’t know whether Vick is or isn’t meeting with the Patriots. But since coach Bill Belichick didn’t rule out the possibility of signing Vick earlier today, we won’t rule out the possibility that Vick is in the building as of this very moment.
UPDATE: As it turns out, Vick is in Newport News today. That’s not a guess. That’s a fact.
