Michael Vick: Where Will He Land Next Year?

    Michael Vick is finally making headlines for the right reasons. Since Kevin Kolb was knocked out of the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 1 game against the Green Bay Packers, Vick has taken full advantage of his time on the field. First, he rallied the Eagles to a comeback against one of the Super Bowl favorites, Green Bay, only to be stopped short at the end of the fourth quarter. Then he won a 35-32 shootout in Detroit.

    Andy Reid has continued to confirm that Kevin Kolb is his starting quarterback and will start in Week 3 despite Vick's Pro Bowl performances. Vick has accumulated over 500 yards in a game-and-a-half of football and there are plenty of teams that should perhaps overlook his checkered past should he be available at the end of the season.

6: Buffalo Bills

    Buffalo attempted to raise its public profile by bringing in the locker room disruption that is Terrell Owens, so why wouldn't they go for Vick? The current quarterback crop of Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Brian Brohm doesn't exactly instill fear into the opposition's defensive coordinators. The Bills are looking very one dimensional, so adding Michael Vick would add an extra dimension, both improving the running game and rejuvenating receivers such as Lee Evans. 

5: Philadelphia Eagles

    Kevin Kolb is the starting quarterback in Philadelphia and he was the first ever QB to post two 300-yard passing games in his first two starts. But Kolb looks like he may has lost some confidence, and having Michael Vick posting big numbers will only add pressure on the new starter. With the hostile crowd in Philadelphia, just how much time will Kevin Kolb be given to get over his growing pains?  

4: Cleveland Browns

    The ever-spinning revolving door that is the Cleveland Browns quarterback position doesn't look like it is stopping any time soon.

    For a brief moment it appeared that Brady Quinn might work out well for them, and we know how that ended. Seneca Wallace doesn't exactly look the real deal either, and though they do have Colt McCoy waiting in the wings, you might forgive the Browns if they took Vick considering how rookie quarterbacks have fared in Cleveland recently.

    Browns fans have been starved of something to cheer for years now, and Michael Vick would bring some excitement.

3: Oakland Raiders

    Jason Campbell got benched in his game against the Rams, as the Raiders let Bruce Gradkowski lead them to a tough victory over St Louis. Gradkowski doesn't exactly set the world on fire, and doesn't fit the bad boy mentality that Raiders fans and Tom Cable love.

    The Raiders had a torrid time burning an early draft pick on JaMarcus Russell, and won't want to relive anything like that. Michael Vick has that bad boy aura and has a big arm which would help receivers like Darrius Heyward-Bey. Michael Vick is perhaps what the Oakland Raiders hoped JaMarcus would be.  

2: Minnesota Vikings

    Brett Favre doesn't look like the QB he was last year. He let Minnesota wait and wait and wait before strolling back into town at the end of training camp. If the Vikings fail to reach the playoffs and no longer look like the Super Bowl-caliber team they were last year, I highly doubt Favre makes another comeback.

    Brad Childress has already shown us exactly how much faith he has in backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, and the idea of defending Adrian Peterson whilst having to contain Michael Vick would send shudders down any defensive coordinator's spine.

1: Tennessee Titans

    How much faith do the Titans have left in Vince Young? As soon as the erratic QB looks like finding the form he had in his rookie season, he implodes.

    Young was benched and replaced by Kerry Collins (who wasn't much better) against the Steelers and you can understand if the Titans' front office has grown tired of Vince's inconsistency.

    The only thing I can think of that is worse than defending Adrian Peterson and Michael Vick is defending Chris Johnson and Michael Vick. There should probably be a rule to stop this from happening.
