The St. Louis Rams have emerged as a potential landing spot for suspended quarterback Michael Vick if heâ€™s reinstated, and team officials have been performing their â€œdue diligence,â€ according to Michael Lombardi of NFP and NFL Network.
Per the report, the Rams have â€œgenuine interestâ€ in Vick, whoâ€™s on house arrest in Virginia after serving 18 months in federal prison.
â€œSeveral people in the NFL told me not to rule out St. Louis as a possible destination for Vick,â€ Lombardi writes. â€œIf [NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell] reinstates him, look for them to actively pursue him. It makes sense, a new coach with an older quarterback who hasnâ€™t played well. Playing in a dome on carpet would highlight Vickâ€™s speed and athleticism.â€
Of course, the Rams being up for sale complicates Vickâ€™s prospects because new ownership could be opposed to pursuing Vick.
