Report: Raiders Best Option For Michael Vick
Oakland Raiders fans may soon have the Michael Vick experience all to themselves.
Jason La Canfora is reporting that the free agent to be will multiple options and that the Oakland Raiders are likely to be his best option to continue as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
The Raiders are mulling several veteran quarterbacks, Vick included, and that looks like the best opportunity for Vick to start quickly. The Vikings, 49ers, Bucs and Texans are also exploring free agent options. If Matt Cassel does not return to Minnesota, Houston is seen as a likely landing spot for him.
Furthermore, the Eagles could end up keeping Vick, as he is well-liked and has a presence in their locker room, and also willingly accepted and handled losing the starting job to Nick Foles last season. Philadelphia has plenty of cap space and a veteran presence who already knows Chip Kelly’s system certainly has value.
I’m of the notion that Vick should move on if he actually can find a landing spot to be a starter. If not, he can just get his Matt Flynn on, and collect a nice check in Philly as Nick Foles’ backup.
