A lot of talk has been made of who (if anyone) will go after Michael Vick, assuming his suspension is lifted. So far there doesn't seem to be any team that wants him.
My question is: Why haven't the Miami Dolphins put their name in there yet?
They run the dream offense for Vick, as his whole career people have said he was a better runner than passer. The Wildcat offense does just that.
Last year, the Dolphins ran the Wildcat offense, and it drove teams insane, and that was when they had Chad Pennington playing quarterback. (I won't say he was under center because half of the time that guy lined up as a receiver.)
Imagine the possibilities for this offense with one of the most athletic players the NFL had ever seen.
Vick could run this offense perfectly with his combined speed and athleticism, not to mention he can still pass. Teams used to have fits trying to game plan for just Vick in terms of his elusiveness and playmaking ability.
Teams will have an even harder job doing that, because the offense he'll be running will force teams to expect anything and everything from the Dolphins.
Yes, I know everyone is afraid of the bad publicity for signing Vick and what people will think of the franchise that does. I've always been taught that everyone deserves a second chance.
Yes, he made a terrible mistake, but he has paid his debt to society and now deserves a chance to show the world what he can do in the NFL.
Although it will be a big gamble for anyone to sign Vick, the reward might be huge for the team who does. And for the Dolphins, that reward could be a Super Bowl title.
