If you didn’t see it in Saturday’s Forum, the Associated Press had a story that the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers might have the most interest in acquiring Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.
Vick is still under contract with the Falcons. He’s missed the last two seasons after being jailed for dog-fighting charges.
Off-the-field problems aside, Vick was an explosive player on the field. His most famous moment might be when he marched into Lambeau Field in the playoffs and beat the Green Bay Packers. It was the first time in NFL history a visiting team won a playoff game at Lambeau.
However, you can’t so easily put his off-the-field problems aside. The public-relations nightmare a team would have in adding someone like him might not be worth what he brings to a team on the field.
So Vikings fans, what say you? Would you like to see Vick in Minnesota next year? I know a lot of Vikings fans who think the team is just a solid QB away from winning. Is this the guy?
