La Canfora: Michael Vick Will Have "Many Suitors"

Written By Bob Cunningham On Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Vick will be starting somewhere in the 2010 season.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed Michael Vick before the 2009 season with every intention of building him back into an NFL quarterback, then unloading him after the season was over. In essence, he was that run-down house on the corner that used to be the best on the block before it was abandoned.

The Eagles bought that run-down house that no one else would touch, put in some new floors, painted the walls, and put in some new windows, and now they're trying to flip that house to someone who could really use it.

And according to Jason La Canfora of, the Rams, Bills, Panthers, Raiders, and Jaguars are all in the market.

The Rams, Bills, Panthers, and Raiders would seem to make the most sense since they're all going in a different direction as far as their starting quarterbacks are concerned. The Jaguars don't seem to make sense anymore since, with Jack Del Rio staying on board, David Garrard will remain the team's starter.

Michael Vick has said he wants a chance to become a starter once again in the NFL, and that could happen with one of these teams.

The only thing to work out will be what the Eagles want out of the deal, and what a team is willing to give up. The Eagles will probably ask for a third round pick to start out, only expecting about a fourth or fifth. The pick will most likely be a conditional pick depending on how much Vick plays and what kind of numbers he produces.

Gun to my head, my guess is that Vick will be traded to the Buffalo Bills or St. Louis Rams for a conditional fifth round pick that could potentially turn into a third.

Remember, you heard it here first. Unless, of course, I'm wrong. Then you heard it from... I don't know, let's say, Jeff McLane.
