NFL Rumors: Michael Vick Headed To The Chiefs?

VickAlmost immediately after the Philadelphia Eagles parted ways with head coach Andy Reid after 14 years of service, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to convince Reid to sign on in an effort to help turnaround the struggling NFL franchise. Kansas City jumped at the opportunity to grab Reid and may have signed the best head coach available as a result, but one problem remains with the Chiefs having a void to fill at the quarterback position.

Kansas City was thought to have a fairly good situation at quarterback during the 2012 regular season with starter Matt Cassel and backup Brady Quinn. Both players are experienced starters in the NFL and were considered solid options for this team trying to build a playoff contender in the AFC once again.

Unfortunately, Cassel has proven to be an enormous waste of money and a disappointment under center to say the least. Once given the opportunity to take over for the injured Cassel, Quinn didn’t make much of a case as a long-term starter leaving the Chiefs’ front office to consider making a change at the position during the off-season.

With Reid now in the fold in Kansas City, an intriguing option for the Chiefs has come to light with Michael Vick a possible candidate for the job under center in Kansas City. Although Vick would definitely be an upgrade over both Cassel and Quinn, Reid says that Vick is still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles according to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane via Twitter:

 

 

Vick is currently still on the Eagles’ roster moving forward, but that will likely change during the off-season. The Eagles have hinted at having no intention of keeping Vick in Philadelphia and as a result may simply release at some point in the coming months.

If Vick is released, the veteran quarterback will likely receive interest from a number of teams either as a starter or in a backup capacity. Vick has made it clear that he will not go back to a backup role for another team making the Chiefs an intriguing option for the 32-year-old.

    If Reid wants to keep his job he should leave the “coach killer” Vick as far away from him as possible. That boy is totally un-coachable. He turns the ball over to much and isn’t smart enough to slide either. Look at the way he holds the ball when he is running all around in circles, like a loaf of bread, all these years in the league and no one has been able to change him. Go get Alex Smith if you want a smart mobile QB.
