Michael Vick would consider playing for Atlanta again

By NINA MANDELL 18 hours ago @ninamandell

In the football history of Michael Vick, there’s generally one important line: before he was arrested for his part in a dogfighting ring and after. It was generally assumed after he was implicated in the dogfighting ring that his time in Atlanta was done, even as the city seemed to welcome him back when he returned as the Eagles quarterback in 2011.

It appears, however, Vick would considering heading back to the Falcons.

While there’s no indication Atlanta is interested, Vick, if his time with Philly comes to a close after this season, would be looking for a new home next season.

“My skill set is still there, my arm is still there, my legs are still there, I’m still a playmaker, that’s evident,” he told CBS Sports. “I think at some point, I’ll be playing somewhere.”

Someone is getting desperate for a job for next year and trolling burnt bridges.

I could see one of the teams with a running QB picking him up as a backup. I think RG3, Kampernick (not bothering looking up the correct spelling), or Wilson could use a backup with a similar skill set. I know that Vick would want to start, but he's not all that.

The funniest thing about the tweet to me was he said that he would consider it later in his career. Vick, come on you know you are 34 years old right? You know know one views you as a number one option to start at QB right? Maybe when he said he would come back to Atlanta he meant as stand up comic. :rofl:

Since Vick is throwing his name in, I'd like to point out to Tommy D and Arthur that I'd also be willing to play for Atlanta next year. I probably have a better shot than Vick.

You could probably unseat Baker
