Vick Is Favored to Join Patriots or Steelers, Oddsmaker Says – Bloomberg.com

Vick is back and this time, he  – or specifically the NFL team that decides to take him on-  is in the dog fighting ring.

BetsUS.com is taking bets with odds of 4-1 that the Steelers and 9-2 that the Bills or 49ers take him on.

July 28 (Bloomberg) — Michael Vick’s second chance in the National Football League is most likely to come from the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Internet gambling Web site BetUS.com.

Vick was conditionally reinstated to the NFL yesterday, a week after completing a 23-month sentence for running a dogfighting ring. The NFL said that the former Pro Bowl quarterback can practice immediately and play in the preseason’s final two games if he can find a team that will sign him.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he’ll decide when Vick can play in regular-season games by Week Six, or mid-October. While teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and New York Jets said they’re not interested in the 29-year-old, other clubs might seek to add the No. 1 pick in the 2001 NFL draft who holds the record for rushing yards in a season by a quarterback.

“The ideal situation for Vick coming out of this process is to land with a respectable franchise that has strong leadership from the owner to the coaches to the players,” BetUS.com spokesman Reed Richards said from the Web site’s Costa Rica-based office. “New England and Pittsburgh both fit that description. They would keep him on a short leash.”

The Patriots and Super Bowl-champion Steelers are given 4-1 odds of adding Vick by BetUS.com. They’re followed by the San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills at 9-2, meaning a winning $100 bet would return $450 plus the original wager.

    Yeah hes not going to the Pats or Steelers. They already have great talent. They dont need a multi purpose play or QB. He’ll probly end up with the 49ers or oakland.
