Belichick Comments on Vick; Won’t Say if Team is Interested

Mike Vick says he’s close to being a part of a team. Could that team be the Patriots? A question about Vick was asked today at camp to coach Bill Belichick, who won’t say if his team is interested in Vick.

After New England’s first practice of training camp Thursday, Belichick was asked his thoughts about Vick’s possible return to the NFL. He praised Vick’s athleticism, but left it at that. Vick said Thursday that he’s getting close to signing with a team.

“Michael is an outstanding player, hasn’t played in a couple of years,” Belichick said. “But right now, our focus is on our team and our players and trying to get the New England Patriots ready and so that’s really where my attention’s been. But he’s a tremendous athlete. Where exactly he is right now, I don’t know.”

The former Falcons quarterback was conditionally reinstated on Monday by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, a week after Vick completed a 23-month sentence for running a dogfighting ring.
