Michael Vick with the Ravens? I Don't Think So

Kyle StrittholtCorrespondent IAugust 12, 2009

Michael Vick has certainly has went through a lot to make himself able to return to the NFL after being released from prison earlier this year.

There is no doubt in my mind that since he has taken all the necessary steps to return to the field, he should be given a second chance.

The question is who will be the person to give Vick this controversial second chance?

It has been said that Vick is expected to be signed by the end of the week, but no one knows to what team or who is interested.

Among the list that hasn’t completely shut the door on the idea is the Baltimore Ravens.

With everyone starting up this phase with the wildcat offense, it looks like Vick would be a boost to an offense, but for the people who say Vick fits in Baltimore, they are definitely wrong.

ESPN speculated that the team may be a good fit, but they are wrong in many different reasons.

First, the Ravens already have their franchise player in Joe Flacco and it doesn’t appear like they would give the job up to someone who’s been away from the game for so long.

It has been noted that Vick doesn’t expect to step in and be the starting guy from day one, but Vick would never be the starting guy in Baltimore and would sit the bench like former Heisman winner Troy Smith.

Which leads me to my next point. The Ravens have a Heisman Trophy winner already sitting on their sidelines who could complete a wildcat type of offense, so why would you bring in a guy who’s been gone for so long?

Smith has better arm strength at this point and is overall a lot more accurate than Vick ever was.

I can see why ESPN is playing guessing games because no one will know until Vick is signed where he will go, but one thing is for sure, that place isn’t Baltimore.
