Michael Vick could be on his way out of Atlanta:
According to published online reports, NFL sources say that the Oakland Raiders are trying to put together a trade deal that would send Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick to the Bay Area.
Reportedly, the deal would send Oakland receivers Randy Moss and Jerry Porter plus the number one overall draft pick in the upcoming 2007 NFL Draft to the Falcons in exchange for Vick and the Falcons first round pick, which is number ten overall in this year’s draft.
There is no doubt that Vick is an incredibly talented athlete, but he has been an disappointment in Atlanta. He can run the occasional exciting play and rush for a 1,000 yards in a season, but he isn’t a leader and has proven to be a distraction to the team.
I hope this is for real, even if it brings Randy Moss to Atlanta.
