Mike Vick in Green & Gold???

Two blogs in two days, look at that.

Packers G.M. Ted Thompson was asked during his press conference if he'd have any interest in signing disgraced free-agent QB Michael Vick.  The line of questionsing went like this:

(Is there any way you entertain signing Michael Vick?)
What is the answer that we give to questions like this? We're always looking to improve our team. We look at all options at all times. I wouldn't care to speculate in terms of the odds or the percentages or anything like that.

(So you have looked at it?)
We look at everything. Or not everything. We don't look at stuff from across the ocean or something.

(Have you had any discussions about whether it's worth pursuing him?)
We've had discussions about a large number of things, and we're always talking personnel, different scenarios and things like that.

(It's an unusual situation, though.)
But the routine that we go through is the same. It doesn't mean any more that we are likely to do it or less likely. It's a routine that we go through. It's automatic.

So there you have it.  Thompson hasn't said the Packers are interested, but he did NOT rule it out like so many other teams have.  With a team with few character flaws, this type of signing could certainly change the dynamic of the Packers, inside and outside of the locker room.  You have to wonder how many of the players in the locker room took to exception to his crimes and would have a hard time accepting him.

Until next time...
