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."
