Ted Thompson won’t rule out interest in Vick


CBS Sports reported earlier today that Ted Thompson is keeping options open for a potential signing of Michael Vick.  Packer fans know how good Thompson is at being vague, and it seems to me that the GM simply doesn’t want to publicly commit to anything.  Here’s the article:

Asked Tuesday about the possibility of signing Vick, Thompson said the team looks “at all options at all times” but didn’t want to speculate about the odds of the team actually pursuing him.

“We look at everything,” Thompson said.

Thompson typically is coy about the team’s plans, so it wasn’t immediately clear whether his comments indicated sincere interest in Vick.

Vick has been conditionally reinstated in the NFL after completing a 23-month federal sentence for running a dogfighting ring. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said Vick can sign with a team and begin playing by week six of the NFL season.

More than two dozen NFL teams have said they’re not interested in signing the 29-year-old Vick. The others have declined comment or taken a stance like that of the Packers.
