There is never a shortage of articles on Michael Vick.

He is a quarterback with a twist; he can run and he can throw, and there is no denying he can play football.

There has been much speculation about which team he will play with when he reaches the NFL, so who will it be?

The top candidates are the 49ers, Vikings, Patriots, Cowboys, blah blah blah...we have heard it before. There is only one team that will get him and from the way it looks to me, that team is the Buffalo Bills.

They just signed star WR Terrell Owens, and we all know how he reacts to above average QBs (the anger at McNabb, the bullying of Romo), imagine how he will react to the underachieving Trent Edwards. It won't be good.

Edwards has 18 TDs to match his 18 INTs in his two years in the league and the Bills have not been a true contender for many seasons now, I've been watching their tapes over the last week (the offseason is hard for me), and from what I can see all that they need is a weapon behind center. Vick could be that weapon.

What everyone seems to forget is that Vick has not played in the NFL for a while, in fact he was in prison. So he is not going to come back and magically put up the numbers he did once upon a time.

But the Bills aren't going to put up the numbers that they did once upon a time either. At least not this season.

They play in a tough division and they are going to need more than just a star wideout to bring back the numbers of the 90s.

A good quarterback will be essential and Edwards is not that man for the time being. Michael Vick will bring more than just the passing and running threats to the team, he will bring the threat of a new formation.

The newest fad to enter the NFL is the wildcat formation, and although most teams will have hours of practice against this style of play, a QB that can effectively run it is never a bad thing.

So when Vick reenters the NFL, whenever that is, the Bills will have their eyes on him.
