Pats Have No Interest in Adding Michael Vick

Vick Federal Sentence
If your living the dream of watching Michael Vick run options and all kinds of crazy plays wearing a Patriots uniform – forget it. The now released from prison ex-Falcons QB is not going to be coming to New England anytime soon, and that’s a fact.

Today’s Providence Journal writes an interesting piece on Vick, but also rules out a possible signing by the Pats for the QB. Here’s a portion of the story:

Robert Kraft views the Patriots as a brand, and as such carefully guards the image of said brand.

Ever since New England acquired alleged malcontent Randy Moss in a draft-day trade with Oakland in 2007, media outsiders seem to believe that the Pats have become the home for the NFL’s lost souls.

But in the eyes of the public, Moss’ sophomoric on-field antics and 2002 Minnesota traffic incident don’t compare to admitting to bankrolling a dogfighting ring, illegal gambling, and killing losing pit bulls.

The article hits it on the head, Vick is going to be a PR nightmare for whatever team takes that risk, and for the Pats, it’s a risk they don’t need. Many rank them as the best team in the league, and adding Vick is going to do nothing but put a negative focus on the Pats when they clearly don’t need the trouble.

    I couldn’t imagine a class organization like the Patriots, picking up a lowlife that tortures dogs. Iam sure they would loose alot of fans including myself.

    Why is it so hard to believe that the Pats could sign Vick? The Patriots organization is nothing but classy, but adding Vick doesn’t make them any less classy. If anything, it shows that they are (once again) willing to give athletes a second chance to prove themselves.

    Do you really think that Belichick would turn down a powerful athlete who will contribute to his team?

  3. T says:

    I truly hope that the Patriots do not pick up a despicable human being like Michael Vick. I think the team and management are far too smart for a move like that.
