Michael Vick the Buccaneer?

Michael VickPeter King of SI.com speculates that once the Falcons release Michael Vick, two landing spots for the suspended quarterback could be Oakland and Tampa Bay.

8. I think I’m dying to know who’s going to try to sign Mike Vick when the Falcons release him. Two teams come to mind: Oakland and Tampa Bay. The Bucs are longshots, but I don’t think new GM Mark Dominick is afraid of him.

The Raiders are an easy choice, but I think King is on the right track in tossing out teams that nobody expects to take on a shot on Vick. Tampa is a long shot, but they have a new GM and head coach and could be looking for a quarterback. The Jets are another team that comes to mind that needs a quarterback and has a strong presence at head coach now in Rex Ryan that could handle Vick. (Although the New York media would absolutely hammer Vick on a daily basis.)

I don’t think you could count out a team like Washington taking a shot on Vick either with Daniel Snyder at the helm. Snyder doesn’t seem entirely sold on Jason Campbell (him trying to trade Campbell last week is evidence of that) and he’s never shy about the flashy signing. Is Vick a good fit for the West Coast Offense? No. But neither is Byron Leftwich and Snyder is pursing him.
