View Full Version : Report: Packers are looking at signing Vick

According to Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal, the Packers are "doing thorough due diligence (http://www.madison.com/wsj/home/sports/packers/460972)" regarding Vick, and they have "had legitimate discussions" about the possibility of acquiring him.

This doesn't mean that a signing is imminent. But it represents a rare indication of a team attempting to engage in the delicate cost-benefit analysis that, as a practical matter, has been difficult for most teams to accomplish while focused on training camp.

And we've been intrigued by possible link between Vick and the Packers, even though most brushed off G.M. Ted Thompson's recent comment that he hasn't ruled out pursuing Vick (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/08/04/packers-dont-rule-out-signing-vick/) as Thompson characteristically keeping his cards close to his vest.

Perfect locale for Vick, away from the media frenzy of larger cities.

True but will the packer fans ever forgive him? Imagine getting booed at every snap, it must be a really tough situation for him.
