In what’s now becoming the offseason for an increasing number of teams, we’re definitely not above connecting dots that have no business being connected for the purpose of discussing reaching rumors. So in that vein, let’s address this little diddy…
Andy Reid on Mike and Mike on if he has any interest in Michael Vick: “He’s still property of the Philadelphia Eagles. But he’s a good kid.”

See, nothing there really, right? But it’s still an interesting question to ponder. There’s a relationship of some kind between Michael Vick and Andy Reid, although surely a somewhat soured one after Nick Foles remained the starter in Philadelphia even when Vick had recovered from his concussion. That link is still there, though, and with the Chiefs set to make a change at quarterback since Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have continued to be only a little bit better than Joe Webb, Vick may sadly be one of the best options available this offseason who isn’t named Alex Smith. That’s of course assuming both of those names are jettisoned by their respective teams, which seems quite likely.
Yes, the Chiefs hold the first overall pick, but that could mean little with a poor draft class at the position. A likely scenario is that Kansas City waits on a quarterback who can be groomed and developed, which then makes Vick a little more appealing as a veteran bridge. But please, don’t let this happen, fantasy overlords.
