Michael Vick to be a Patriot?

Fresh off the heels (athankyou) of his release from federal prison for dog fighting, Michael Vick has returned to his home in Virginia to serve out the remaining two months of his 23 month sentence. Vick will work construction during that time but then will be able to petition the NFL for reinstatement. This has already set the media pundit world into a tizzy predicting where Vick could end up. It’s apparent from all accounts he will never wear a Falcons jersey again, but could he be taking his game to Gillette Stadium of all places?

Peter King of CNNSI.com thinks so. So does ESPN’s John Clayton. What say you?

My Take: Two words: No thanks. The argument used here is that Vick could help the Patriots take the Wildcat offense to new levels. Whether the Wildcat is going to evolve into a legitimate offense or is just a fad formation is another topic, but the baggage Vick will bring to whatever franchise he joins will be immense. You think it took some “Dennis” for the Celtics to bring in Stephon Marbury? That was nothing compared to a convicted felon. I can’t see owner Bob Kraft – who thankfully is very conscientious about the image of the franchise – allowing Vick to make his return to the NFL in Patriots blue. What say YOU?

  1. I will pass on Vick, though I don’t think he should face any more punishment. If Leonard Little can murder a person, go to jail for less time, and still play in the NFL, Michael Vick should be allowed just the same.
