Is Michael Vick visiting the Vikings today? Some say yes, others say no


Ryan Boser, a fantasy football writer, says veteran quarterback Michael Vick will be in Minnesota visiting the Vikings today. Nobody else has reported the same, although there are rumors swirling that Vick might already be in the Twin Cities.

This is far from official, but what if Vick winds up being Teddy Bridgewater's replacement? Ex-Vikings center Matt Birk told KFAN radio that a two-headed quarterback system with Vick and Shaun Hill could work.

Vick, 36, recently told the Charlotte Observer that he wants to play for a contender and that he's still one of the three or four fastest quarterbacks in the NFL. He said Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick could challenge his speed.

Other than that, there's really nothing connecting Vick to the Vikings, with the exception that he played under Vikings tight ends coach Pat Shurmer in Philadelphia. Shurmer was the Eagles' offensive coordinator.
