Now that we can be done with the Brett Favre rumors to Minnesota*, it's time to start floating around the Michael Vick to Minnesota rumors. I mean why not, the Vikings obviously want a quarterback with a better pedigree than Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson and Vick delivers this.
To me Minnesota now becomes the most logical fit. A team in contention that was willing to take on a new quarterback with risk all of season. They are in a smallish market so the backlash might be less. And most importantly he would make a difference on the team.
Just picture this for a second. In his prime Vick led the most dominating rushing attack in football. This came with miniature Warrick Dunn and Jerious Norwood. Now imagine Vick in the same backfield as Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor. This is what the Vikings were looking to get from Tarvaris when they drafted him as a poor man's Vick, but he hasn't even come close to living up to the hype.
Its time to start the Minnesota Vickings rumor mill.
*We probably can't be done with the rumors because it's Brett Favre, he doesn't want to retire, the rumors will go on and on my friend, cause it's the story that doesn't end...
