    Michael Vick At It Again

    MIAMI -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick reluctantly surrendered a water bottle to security at Miami International Airport that smelled like marijuana and contained a substance in a hidden compartment.
    Police said Thursday it could be weeks before a decision is made on whether to file charges.

    "We'll do an analysis and see what it is. There's no sense of urgency to it," Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said Thursday.

    The bottle was found to have a compartment that contained "a small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana," the police report said. The compartment was hidden by the bottle's label so that it appeared to be a full bottle of water when held upright, police said.
    Vick entered an airport concourse Wednesday morning with the 20-ounce bottle. His initial reluctance to turn over the bottle aroused suspicion among airport security screeners, a police report said. He eventually handed it over and boarded his flight to Atlanta.

    Police said the bottle was sent to the Miami-Dade County crime lab.
    Vick did not immediately return a phone call early Thursday.

    "We plan to look into the matter and discuss it with Michael Vick before having any further comment," Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said.
    Under Florida law, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. First offenders rarely do any jail time.

    Two Transportation Security Administration screeners recognized the 6-foot, 215-pound Vick.

    Vick, 26, just finished the second year of a 10-year, $137 million contract he signed in January 2005. While he remains one of the NFL's most potent scoring threats and athletic performers, he has also been questioned for his consistency, particularly as a passer. However, new Falcons coach Bobby Petrino said earlier this month that he intends to design the team's offense around Vick.

    In 74 career NFL games, Vick has completed 930 of 1,730 passes for 11,505 yards and 71 touchdowns with 52 interceptions. He had career bests of 20 touchdown passes and 1,039 yards rushing in 2006.

    If every athlete in the NFL & NBA that smoked the sticky icky got banned from professional sports, we'd probably have less than a 100 guys left. Not saying it's ok, just saying it doesn't surprise me.

    Yeah, but to try and "smuggle" his stash bottle through airport security? What was he going to do, have a toke on the flight? Sorry, but this guy is a complete idiot.

    Well, like you said, "If every athlete in the NFL & NBA that smoked the sticky icky got banned from professional sports, we'd probably have less than a 100 guys left." Somehow, the vast majority of these other guys manage to stay out of the headlines.

    As far as Vick, the Ron Mexico legacy is alive and well.

    Re: Michael Vick At It Again

    Interesting sub-plot to this piece of news from Rotoworld...

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Falcons will not trade Matt Schaub following Michael Vick's incident with his Aquafina bottle.

    Mortensen says Schaub is now the "insurance policy" for Vick. Schaub is also closer in likeness to the quarterbacks Bobby Petrino tutored at Louisville. There's new reason to believe that Schaub will get increased OTA snaps in light of Vick's questionable off-field decision making.

    If I were the GM of the Falcons, I'd trade Vick while he still has value and build a more conventional offense around Shaub.
