[URL="http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/sports/16119462.htm"]Here's something to picture as you look ahead to the offseason: Michael Vick in a Raiders jersey. (http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/sports/16119462.htm) A lot, namely a trade and a lot of salary cap details, will have to happen in the meantime. But this one makes perfect sense, and it may be just what the Raiders need to revive a franchise that's faltering. The Falcons, who have given Vick every possible chance, will be willing to part with their quarterback. Despite his outrageous talent, he hasn't produced on any sort of consistent level and tensions are at an all-time high in the Falcons organization. The crescendo may have come Sunday when Vick made an obscene gesture at Atlanta fans who ridiculed him as he walked off the field. The Falcons gladly would take draft picks for Vick, who clearly needs a fresh start. And what better place for Vick than Oakland, where many a renegade has prospered? Picture Vick throwing to Randy Moss. Picture Al Davis smiling again. Even on his bad days, Vick would fit in Oakland.

:D

It would be a good fit but the Raiders also need a O-Line, a RB, and receivers too.

Typical. People trying to put every player who has a "thug" image in a Raiders uniform.

Michael Vick had apologized already for christ sakes. He's a Falcon for life. His contract says so. Get over it. Without Michael Vick, that Falcon team wouldn't win a damn game. Matt Schaub isn't going to improve his receivers hands. Those receivers flat out suck.

Vick would be a good fit with the raiders.

He could negate the lack of an OLine by his scrambling skills.

I'd sent Jerry Porter and a #1 for Vick and see if they bite.

Thug no

Renegade yes


Vick is the total renegade QB. he's better at running than passing and his flashy skills would translate well to a team in need of flash.

I think it would be more than that.

Porter and 2 first round picks.

:yeahthat:

But do the Falcons really need WRs?

They have Jenkins and Lelie, and hopefully Fineran back from injury next season.

Michael Huff and a 1st?

This would actually be a good fit. And a typical Raider pick up. They seem to have a thing with picking up the league's most contraversial players.

True. That would work better. Isnt Falcons have enough safteys though? I think Porter and Moss would stay if they brought in Vick. I still think Leftwhich to Oakland is a better fit. That way Oakland doesnt pull a Minnesota/Dallas trade.

Is'nt the goal to get BETTER if you are the Raiders?

Giving up the farm, and having a cap killing contract on the books, for Ron Mexico is not a step in the right direction.

They should have taken Matt Leinart when they had the chance. I will enjoy watching them regret that decision for the next decade.

The Raiders are going to need a lot more than Michael Vick to turn it around but it might be a better place for him....Vick is going to have to take a big pay cut I think.....there is no way he should be the highest paid NFL player.
