On tonight's The Michael Vick Project, which just finished airing on BET, Vick said that following his release from prison he thought he was headed to the St. Louis Rams.
"I thought I was headed to St. Louis...St. Louis or Kansas City," said Vick.
I know there has been much speculation about whether we cut ties with Bulger and make a run at bringing Vick aboard to start next year, espeically given the Devaney-Vick connection from their days with the Falcons and the Philly-like offensive playbook we run. I'll certainly admit I've been on the bandwagon. But you gotta wonder whether there was a lot more to this story than any of us realized, given the statements aired tonight. Think Devaney was closer to pulling the trigger on signing Vick than the St. Louis media reported? If so, why didn't happen? Could there have been a veto from Spags or ownership? If there was, does how does that affect the chances of trading a 4th or 5th round draft pick for him this year? Would owner Khan see things differently than others?
