Michael Vick Perfect for Miami Dolphins?

helmet14Welcome to Pigskin Paula’s Picks…For you football fans out there, Pigskin Paula is a sports nut from the word go.  I don’t care if it’s watching football, baseball, basketball, hockey, boxing all except maybe golf.  Paula insists that golf is not a real sport…it’s a talent.  There is nothing athletic about it at all much like pool, darting and bowling.  Come on they don’t even carry their own bags and they need their caddy to tell them what club to use.  Quiet Please…..

I’ve asked Paula repeatedly what she thinks will happen to Michael Vick, will any team take the chance on him?  At first she wasn’t sure if any team would tarnish their reputation and take all of the BS that will surely follow… the picketing… the bad press.  But we all know that as the football season gets closer, the teams get more desperate for any type of player that has a pit bull mentality.

So far the San Fransico 49’ers, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, and of course the Atlanta Falcons have openly stated that they will not in any way consider Michael Vick as an option.  Only the United Football League has a standing offer for Vick, but Vick has made it known that he is not interested in the UFL.  Being a little choosy is he?

The was a lot of speculation that the New England Patriots would be a perfect fit for Vick.  The top 3 reasons against this match are the salary cap, the fit of Vick as their quaterback, and they don’t run the wildcat offense. 

If Vick were to get picked up anywhere, Paula’s Pigskin Prediction is the Miami Dolphins.  First of all, Miami would be able to get him dirt cheap.  Right now his contract with Atlanta is 9 million, but no one is going to trade for him.  Next he will become a free agent and the highest bidder will win.  Vick has got to realize ego and all, that anyone bidding on him would be a prayer answered.  If he wants to play in the NFL, he will at any price.  Second, the Dolphins already run the wildcat offense.  As long as Chad Pennington stays healthy, Vick wouldn’t be playing much at all, but in case of injury, Vick would or should be able to pick right up and play.  The last reason is…Miami is close enough to Atlanta where Vick still might have a fan base and Bill Parcels won’t put up with any crap from Vick.  One wrong move and he’s gone. 

Let’s see how Pigskin Paula’s first prediction of the season plays out.  We should know something within a month or so.
