The Bills have had to jump through hoops to sell tickets? Are you kidding me? They have sold out nearly every game since 1986, and have sold over 53,000 season tickets for 3 seasons in a row, more than they sold during the Super Bowl years. Do some research, and stop spreading misinformation.

Judging from Vick's last appearance at Soldier, he's going to want to go to a warm weather city or a dome and his ego will steer him toward a team where he has a chance to start. The only exception to this is the Pats, where he'd get a chance at a Ring.

That said, I think Detroit would be foolish not to look at this guy. Talk about a team with attendence issues! Vick would get the dome he wants, the starting job on a platter and Detroit would get fans in the seats! Best of all, we'd get a chance to kick his butt twice a year. That's a win, win, win situation if I ever heard one.

McCool, you are dead on. I highly doubt any of the fanatic Vick haters will be nearly as vocal if Daunte Stallworth is allowed to play again, and he killed a human.

I think there are a few more possible destinations:

Cleveland: 2 QB battle no one wants to win.

Dallas: It will only take a couple of bad games inside a billion dollar stadium for people to question Tony Romo.

Minnesota: If Brett stays home, he has to be more appealing than Travaris Jackson.

Da Bears, how quickly you forget Vick's playoff win in a much colder Lambeau.

You forgot Detroit.

Talk about a come back town with a new "come-back kid". He plays well on turf, and their current QB sucks.

I think once he is free to make a decision I think a lot of teams will be interested. This is americas sport and call me crazy but I have a feeling there are more football lovers than there are dog lovers. You all screamed until you got him off the streets your work is done congrats! Now its time for football and I for one can't wait to see him suit up and honestly if its in orange and blue I would go crazy! Although I doubt that would happen ps I doubt he's going to miami but buffolo would be a cool spot does anybody remember the vick-to commercial ahhhhh that's exactly how it would be plus he would in the afc lol I don't wanna see him

What he did was absolutely horrible and inexcusable. That being said, guys currently playing in the NFL have certainly done things on par, possibly even worse.

He paid his debt (and in fact got a harsher sentence than I think the average person would have gotten) and deserves a second chance.

I think he'll end up being a solid player, probably not the superstar he might have been, but he'll eventually end up some place where he puts up respectable numbers.

Vick's punishment in Jail did not come close to the evil he caused. Vick deserves the justice of a tall tree and short rope. If an NFL team is so stupid to sign him I only hope their plane crashes and burns - the same treatment Vick did to the dogs he slaughtered.

Vick needs to be chained up and attacked by the dogs he harmed. A nice slow agonizing death would be perfect for the monster.

You mean the hot dogs that are made of MEAT that are SLAUGHTERED on a daily basis?
They plan the slaughters! They have slaughtering farms!
Oh wait, since they aren't dogs and you aren't Korean, it's okay to kill THAT animal.
Thanks for proving my point, jacknuts.
Dont be stupid. How can you compare killing animals, that ARE ONLY ALIVE because they are grown to be eaten vs. torturing an animal for entertainment. A pig or Cow would never even had any life if they were not grown to be eaten. Those dogs were killed for pleasure and entertainment. The fact that you are even comparing the two shows just how ignorant you are.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing that he did his time for his crime. There is no "truth" to that ridiculous statement.

"Vick does not belong in the NFL, he lied, and now he has the chance to earn back millions of dollars!"

Remember this: He lied to his employer, the NFL, he f'n lied to Rodger and said he didn't do anything and he wasn't involved with the dog fighting and money. He lied to his BOSS and guess what... they are taking him back!!! Unbelivable.

I know... all you Vick lovers that are out there are right now saying he paid his debt to society. Please give me a break!

Also, if the Miami Dolphins take him for some STUPID reason, I don't know why with having a younger, better human being, like Pat White, I would have to disown the MIAMI DOLPHINS!

Bill and Company... don't even think about taken that scum bag.

Response to McCool or Mcdumbass!

Just wanted to write that "McCool" YOUR A JOKE!
..... Your a JOKE!
...... Your a JOKE!!!!
........ Your a BIG JOKE!!!!
McCool is a stupid, ignorant JOKE!
PS - Newsflash: "VIC LOVER" You have no idea what the heck you are talking about!
You obviously were not raised around any dogs. If you were that lucky to have been then you wouldn't have said what you have in this blog!
You were probably to ignorant to care for another animal's life. Heck, I bet you have been to dog fights yourself. By the way you talk, I bet you have.

Uh, first, most of the dogs that were destroyed were born and bred to be fighting dogs, so you can throw that part of your stupid argument away.
Forgetting that you have half a clue about what you're talking about: What's the difference how they were killed or why they were alive? Different animals have different values to you? So life isn't life. Slaughtering one animal is fine. Slaughtering another animal isn't acceptable. That's cool.
Keep proving my point that you're all hypocritical ****. You're a joke.
"bred to be fighting dogs". Thats illegal. How can you even compare the two.
And yes, slaughtering an animal for food is different that picking one up and slamming it to the ground for entertainment. If you cant see that, then you are even more dense than I had originally assumed (correctly).

You all are hilarious... I hope all of you are vegetarians. For every hot dog you eat, your intestines should be ground up into tube like shapes and serve with ketchup and relish. For every burger you, you should be put on a conveyor belt and rolled into a large building where you will have your head chopped off and various part of your body ground up for barbecues. For cedar plank salmon you eat, you should be hooked, gutted, and cooked on a wooden plank and server with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. By your definition, we should have done to us what Vick did to those poor dogs. Be careful what you wish for.

What he did was wrong. He paid the price and then some. The NFL owes him nothing. But he also doesn't owe the NFL anything either. Reinstating him does not guarantee him a job. It's simply wiping the slate clean. You know, every now and then people get out of jail and grow to become a positive piece of society. Not too often, but it happens. Why should he be treated as a criminal for the rest of his life?

I'm sure if you asked the pig or the cow who had its head chopped off or guts splattered whether or not it considered its purpose in life to be the feed of humans, they would object to your characterization.

Killing an animal is killing an animal. Mistreating an animal is mistreating an animal, and animals bred for meat are just as equally mistreated as those dogs were.

Check out the video at meat.com

I'm not saying people shouldn't eat meat. I'm about to have some chicken. But don't stand there and say that what Vick did was any less savage to THE ANIMAL as what happens to farm animals.

In fact, I can't stand dog lovers, because they treat animals with more dignity than human beings.

They will let their dog crap in front of a homeless man in the South Loop and walk right past him.

What Vick did was wrong. But there are people in the league who have done far worse things to HUMANS who have severed a month or two in prison, and been reinstated. I.E. Leonard Little and Mark Chamura.

And no one did anything to Brett Myers of the Phillies for slapping his wife around in public. He pitched in the World Series while Vick was in prison.

To make a long story short, get off your high horses you hypocrites. The fact that you put so much value into a specific type of animal -- which is essentially enslaved and often mutilated to fit its master's desires -- is ridiculous.

I don't care what team Vick goes to, my family and I will not watch any game played by that team, even our beloved Bears. If the Bears were to take him, we'd become Bengals fans.
Doesn't he have a college education? Perhaps he should make a career for himself based on that education.

So anyone who says that Vick shouldn't be playing in NFL doesn't believe in our whole justice and rehabilitation system? Whether or not you believe Vick paid his "debt" is irrelevant. Our court system determined the punishment and he served his time. Why shouldn't he get a chance to make a living?

And the whole breeding animals for food vs. killing argument is completely invalid. How about hunters who kill animals for "sport?"
