It looks like the Michael Vick rumors just won’t die. Earlier in the week it was speculated that Vick had strong interest from the 49ers and the Redskins. Well as we all know those rumors where quickly shot down as Vinny Cerrato insists there is no interest from the team.
We are now hearing that Vick to the Skins is building momentum per ESPN insider. Of course right now these are just rumors but will this madness ever stop? Listen, I know Vick has a ton of talent and is going to be a big asset to any team he ends up with but he just doesn’t belong in the burgundy and gold. I am all for giving guys a second chance to prove they have changed and I think over time Vick will show us that he has learned from his mistakes. The distraction alone could kill a team’s chemistry and moral. Not to mention we still don’t know how long he will be suspended for. It could be up to week 8, do we really want to take that big of risk for a guy who may miss half the season?
In the midst of all this sits Jason Campbell, a true professional. I admit I have had my doubts about Campbell and wanted him benched more than a couple times just like the rest of you. This guy has shown what type of character and class NFL players are supposed to have. From the Cutler situation to the Vick speculation Campbell has stayed strong. Not once have I heard hime speak out against the organization or the team. This is the type of quarterback I want to root for and who I want running my team. He may not have all the physical tools yet but he has proven to me that he is a lot tougher than I ever thought.
