Lemon visited Pats on Friday

A major stir was created on Friday afternoon, when Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald reported that quarterback Mike Vick would be working out for the Patriots at 3:30 p.m. EDT.

As it turns out, it wasn’t Mike Vick.  (And we can now — and forever — say with a high degree of confidence that the only way Mike Vick ever will be in Foxborough is as a member of the visiting team.)

But another quarterback worked out for the Patriots yesterday, at or about 3:30 p.m. EDT.

It was Cleo Lemon, a five-year veteran who has been bouncing around the league of late.

Sure, both Lemon and Vick are African-American.  But Lemon looks nothing like Vick.

Meanwhile, we continue to receive e-mails from readers insisting that Vick was in Pittsburgh on Friday.
