New Dolphin - Michael Vick, QB

Okay, not really, but when and if Vick gets reinstated to the NFL, would Miami be interested?

Dolphins GM, Jeff Ireland said in his pre-draft press conference that they would continue to turn over rocks as they always had, although, let's be honest, you don't need to turn over any rocks to find Vick.

Then the Dolphins drafted Pat White, who is perhaps Vick, the second-coming. So you'd think that would put the story to rest down in South Florida.

Instead it's about to blow up again. Thanks to the Wild-Cat, every pundit out there automatically projects any running QB to the Dolphins, and Vick was no exception. And that's why, when several teams are distancing themselves from Vick and saying they are not interested, the comment from Stephen Ross, Miami Dolphins Owner, that "he believes in giving people a second chance" and he would look into Michael Vick if the football people in the organization asked about him, will possibly open up a whole new can of worms.

Sure, Ross does not get involved in football operations, that's Bill Parcells' job. But it's reasonable to think if Vick could convince Parcells, the Tuna would likely jump on that opportunity, primarily because he'd be getting a dynamic football player for minimum wage. Rest assured none of this will happen this year, at least not this off-season, but in 2010, we may have yet another mix-up at quarterback.

By the way, for the sake of clarity, I will from now on be using the following pseudonyms when referencing the following people/things.
Brett Favre = The Wrangler
Joe Flacco = The 'F' Word
LandShark Stadium = The Aquarium
Michael Vick = The Dog Whisperer
