The NFL sent out feelers to NFL teams they thought might be interested in bidding for the services of disgraced quarterback Michael Vick. Out of the 31 teams queried -- 18 said 'No thanks' and the number is expected to climb.

Vick, who spent 17 months in a federal prison for dog fighting, wasn't exactly burning up the field with TDs before checking in to Club Fed.

Maybe the teams remember that he tends to fumble the ball a lot and throws a few more interceptions than they would like while scrambling out of the pocket.

Or maybe Vick's salary demands are too laughable to even consider. Then there's the stigma of having such an infamous ex-con on your roster. That fact alone is sure to be mentioned every time the team hits the field.

So can you blame them? But as AJC sports writer Jeff Shcultz wrote: "Thirty-one teams can say no but it only takes one to give Vick a contract."

    I could have done without the picture of the dog.. fa real fa real.

  • http://smokiesays.blogspot.com/ Smokie

    They're acting like they've forgotten how hard Vick is on the field! Don't they remember him carrying whole teams on his back???? That's ok though.... whoever does get him (please let it be Dallas) will have one hell of a player. He's got something to prove and he'll be a monster on the field!

  • Krysi J

    Man Vick.....fukk da NFL man, if thats how they wanna be...do your thang elsewhere shyt move cross seas....or just start something new, sign a reality show contract and go Hollywood....shyt I'd watch and support. People have done fukking worse...OK!! SOME FUKKING DOGS...MAN AMERICA IS FUKKING CRAZY!!

  • Krysi J

    AND FUKK DAT PICTURE TOO!

  • missmiami

    I really want him to make a comeback. Everyone in the hood/down south knows about underground dog fighting. He just got caught.

  • Lemondrop

    I'm sayin, what is this man supposed to do lay down & die? There are people who have done worse and received less punishment than he did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    dog killa! i have two dogs and im pissed they reinstated this fool.

  • aqtpie

    Uggh aren't there song thieves and liars to go after??? Anywho, IMO while I won’t pretend that his actions were right, *hurting/supporting the hurt of innocent dogs for money is a no-no in my book* as far as prosecution goes, compared to a lot more serious cases, I find his punishment to be unfair. I say give him a second chance!!!

  • rochele08

    ..i hope he's able to play again.

    he's served his time (NOT FAIRLY SENTENCED)
    but...lesson learned.

    ...get this man back on the football field so he can move on with life and get back on track.

  • Negrito

    Vick has been punished enough. Let the man live and do what he does best. Vick is an amazing talent and I'm sure he'll do just fine once he's back.

  • Prissydiva71

    Believe me, someone will give him a chance. Sandra, you could have left the picture out. In a year, you will be team Vick. You know how you like to go back and forth. One minute you like someone, the next you don't. That's just Sandra!

  • Negrito

    BTW...Is dogfighting really that bad? I mean I like cockfighting and bullfighting.

  • miamore73

    One of my co-workers brought up the fact that whoever signs Vick is going to end up with PITA picketing their stadium every time there is a game.

  • Daisy

    @mia Money talks the NFL can pay PETA off and keep it moving lol

  • netta0281

    Vick will be fine best believe that

  • miamore73

    Daisy it is with an E...my Pita you eat.

    Can PETA be paid off??

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    He doesnt have anyone else to blame but himself. I hope he never gets reinstated in the NFL and I wanna see him try to go hollywood. Lets see how the rest of the dog loving hollywood world feels about him. F*ckin bastard!

    What the hell was he doing havin dog fights in his million dollar mansion putting up his millions on bets. I hope he got rid of that hood mentality bc that ignorance is what got him where he is now... NO WHERE!

  • netta0281

    @Hermosa,lol you are really mad huh???Only person he got to answer to is God, so get over it?lol you have a problem with your self SYM!!!!

  • netta0281

    Pitbulls are dangerous dogs so i could care less about them.When they maul people nothing gets said so get over it

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    People kill me with that Bullsh!t especially those that don't want him to comeback. First off the man spend damn near 2 years in jail, he lost pretty much everything! So the man paid his debt to society! What else do you want from him???

    Ok so it ok to go hunting right? They say one shot one kill but there a plenty of time where there IS NOT one shot and one kill and the animal is wounded and runs into the woods dying a slow death, but yes it is OK AND it is considered a sport!. How hypocritical.

    Yes, it was wrong and they easily could have him donate a certain amount of money, make him do community service at a animal shelter but people are crying wolf over what??? Stallworth killed someone and got what 30 days or community service? T.I. is a convicted felon caught with guns, but was able to still make money, stay at home, and is only serving less than a year.

    But yet all these people still want blood from Michael Vick, F**k that, you sit here and cry about these damn dogs, I love dogs but yet they are not human and yes you have no right to abuse them, but the bottomline is he paid is debt and I think it was way too much. Where are you when these cops kill innocent people and simply be put on "administrative paid leave?"

    So if you still want blood from M. Vick F**k you, too because you a bastards as well!

  • Daisy

    Hermose I have a copy of the memo where Vick was already reinstated if u need to review it and he will be playing n the NFL again

    @mia yes PETA and any other org. Can be paid off IMO

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    @netta0281

    ummm, am i passionate about dogs and their well being? yes, bc im a proud owner of one. Am i mad? No. vick dont owe me shyt but a i have an opinion just like you.

    I have a problem with myself? why? can u explain why i have a problem? and what does SYM mean.

  • netta0281

    @dblaq you are so true! Everyone deserve a second chance

  • netta0281

    @Hermosa SYM= SO YOU MAD (BOW WOW) I mean he deserve a second chance??He already got reinstated! God controls everything we have no say in it. So if a dog mauls a child then what?

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    Bottom line is....yes, he did his time. Yes, he lost everything. but im sick and tired of ppl saying his sentence was too grand over some dogs and that the justice system ruined his career. this man did this to himself. he knew what he was doing was wrong.

    and yeah, the only person who can judge him is god and yadayadayada...stop it with the bible verses, that shyt dont work with me.

    to some ppl dogs are nothing but to me and maNy other ppl dogs are part of the family. i love my dog more than i love some of my family members. THATS MY OPINION. And you have the right to disagree.

  • netta0281

    @Hermosa I dont care if it works with you cause i know i follow it you must the devil you are hateful

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    @netta0281

    In his situation, a dog didnt maul a child. This man visiciously beat and burned these dogs while they were still alive. i can understand if your not a dog person and all that jazz. I can even understand (to the extreme) why dog fighting is a sport. But why did he have to beat them after the fights? why did he have to burn them alive? why did he have them buried in his backyard like pets cemetary? THose are actions of a man that had no heart.

    if he had all this money to invest in dog fighting, why not invest in some shots to put the dogs to sleep peacfully instead of causing more excrutiating(sp?) pain to them?

  • ELove

    Mike Vick set aside over $875K for the rescue-n-care of the remaining animals (DOGS) that were on his property THAT HE DIDN'T LIVE ON and he offered to do some community-n-charity work... They being PETA turned him down MEANING the community-service work that HE OFFERED TO DO for them!!!

    Mike Vick didn't kill any dogs but he WAS FORCED to admit to killing A DOG and Witnessing the torturing of another DOG BECAUSE any plea-bargain deal had to include Vick's admission of killing at least ONE DOG... The FEDS wouldn't allow a plea that didn't include such charges

    JUST a F.Y.I. for those that don't know about these facts

  • aqtpie

    @Hermorsa
    IMO I don't think there is anyone who is saying that HIS case belongs on the shoulders of anyone except him nor that he didn't deserve JUST punishment. I believe,
    it's the degree of punishment that people are disagreeing with. You have people who cheat senior citzens out of money or abuse them, people who abuse children, or adults who abuse each other who do not get the same amount of punishment (or greater) than MV got. At least that is what I find unfair.

    You are very much entitled to feel the way you feel. I personally feel MV didn't have anything to do with the killing of those animals but I do believe he knew that there was dog fighting on his property. So he just may be guilty of supporting ghetto mentality family members. *like I am*. =)

    One MORE nugget of info:
    The Federal Judicial System has all kinds of checks-n-balances that don't necessarily work hand-n-hand MEANING all departments don't serve the same master

    After accepting the plea-bargain Mike Vick later had to RECANT HIS CRIMES that were listed in the plea-agreement which BTW were accompanied by a LIE DETECTOR test-exam...

    Vick FAILED that test MISERABLY because YOU can't true-fully admit to something that YOU DIDN'T DO or COMMIT... Of course that's not a deal-breaker for the FEDS because they don't care about GUILT-or-INNOCENCE when it comes to Black People !!! Go look at the sentencing guidelines and HOW they are administered for Whites and Non-Whites during the sentencing process as far as YEARS SPENT IN PRISON for a particular crime ...

    I agree that other ppl get away with murder but we are not talking about other ppl. We are talking about Michael Vick. Why don't we compare his sentence to other animal abuse trials instead of trying to compare his trial to something that is obviously more important.

Cool. Do it. And when you're back on top, charge out the ass for endorsements and all else.

    You need to be an animal lover to understand the severity of what he did. I connect better with animals than with humans, crazy as it may seem. I was one of those people who routed for him and his jail sentence. That picture that Sandra put up was horrible! I have never looked at what happened to the surviving dog. Im glad he served him time and don't think he shouldn't play but (unless im mistaken) he was also found with weed in his system which could have something to do with why he is not being picked up. I also think he needs to do more with the animal community than go on paid speaking arrangements talking about what was done. I hate hunting as a sport and bull fighting, cock fighting all types of animal cruelty.

    Family isnt what it was back then. I don't know all the fact or who did what BUT i do know that dogs were being killed on his property and I can't beleive for a second that he didnt know. His family were the main components but turned on him. Which is why some people relate to their pets more than their family or humans at all. My families never really done one thing for me and when I damn near died they werent there but my dogs where. If the NFL reinstated him to keep him with the NFL then the anger needs to go towards the NFL for keeping him down.

    @Hermosa I think race is an issue because I dont feel they (the NFL) would have treated Peyton or Big Ben like this AFTER they served their time they could come back ASAP. When a white NFL player gets in trouble with the law its not covered the same recent ex big ben (whom I like) was accused of rape ESPN barely touched the story

  • Shauny

    Daisy What's up! Glad I wasn't on here earlier because this is a MESS!

    TEAM VICK though. I also agree with what you said about if it was Peyton or Ben. Have you peeped how everyone is reporting his rape suit. Also Peyton, Eli, Brett and all those other coutry mfs hunt and kill game but to PETA they get passes. I don't understand how people actually think Vick had time to actually do the chit he was convicted of. They wanted a big name and they got one...pretty simple.

  • pointhimout

    @Daisy

    you know when a white guy takes it, the chick was asking for it and consented, though she may have been drunk or at the least, saying NO in five different languages. This includes "MF please stop, dont do it, I'm begging you not to."

    Hello All. Mike has paid his debt to society big time. Quite frankly, no matter how gruesome this picture is, HE IS A DOG! (Did you read about the baby being cut out the womb, now that's a crime!) I love my 13 year old German Shepard but once again, she's a dog. White people love their animals more than they do us. As a Christian, I've never, ever read in the Bible where Jesus said to love thy pet as thy neighbor! Hell, they ate and scraficed baby lambs in the Bible I'm just saying. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  • cinnamonkisses97

    Let him play , ban him from owing a dog , but not from playing , this is so sad , a white player would have gotten a slap on the wrist and it would have been over with by now . Vick is good he deserves another chance , and Sandra what player do you know that doesn't fumble on and off the the field , I know plenty . GO VICK !!!!!!!!!

  • luvly1957

    Oh my I was working too hard yesterday I missed this but Charles and Hermosa are hittin it pretty hard. I am from the ATL and I think the NFL and the state of Virginia did MIke wrong for the simple fact his so call ed froiends who was actually running the business and living on the property only got 6 months due to the fact they turned state witnesses and clearly said they LIED on Mike so the state could get a big person (MIKE).

    Mike bought the property and yes he knew wat waz goin and he had to admit to killing dogs or else he would have gotten a worse sentence. I understand ppl luv dogs just as much as some ppl but a darn dog will turn on u faster than a person.

    I am so not an animal person and i know this so i stay da hell away from them. He should be able to play in da sorry azz NFL and support his family just like every other freakin American it is just a DAMN DOG. Peta needs to take up the issue of huntin and killing those type of animals as a sport they are endangering species.

    GO MIKE AND FUKK DA NFL IF NOBODY PIKS HIM UP!!!!
