    I posted this elsewhere a little over a month ago, but I'll copy and paste it here since it's applicable.

    If the info I'm looking at is correct, Vick's deal included $37 million in signing bonus money - one initial bonus of $7.5 million, one roster bonus of $22.5 million in March 2005, and one roster bonus of $7 million in 2006. All of them are treated as normal signing bonuses. Since Vick still has eight years left on that deal, the majority of that prorated bonus money has yet to count and would be accelerated if he were cut. If I had to guess, I would think trading/cutting him afer this season would give the Falcons closer to a $30 million accelerated hit for 2007, which frankly would be extremely hard if not impossible to absorb.

    Re: Michael Vick At It Again

    Update: Apparently the substance found was not marijuana nor was it illegal. Supposedly Vick is to be exhonerated? Someone might want to look into this or something but I just caught it on the radio. So.. Vick is not in trouble.

    Jan. 21, 2007) -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick wasn't carrying marijuana when stopped by security last week at Miami International Airport, ESPN reported Sunday.
    Citing anonymous NFL sources, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Vick wasn't carrying marijuana or any other illegal substance. The ESPN report also cited an anonymous Falcons source, who said the team expects to hear something formal by Jan. 22.
    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wouldn't comment on the report. He told The Associated Press the league had received no information on the issue.
    On Jan. 17, Vick reluctantly surrendered a water bottle to security at the Miami airport. He was not arrested and was allowed to board an AirTran flight to Atlanta.
    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.
    Miami police have said it could take weeks to decide whether to file charges.

    Sources: Vick had no pot, illegal substance at airport

    Hmm. He's hesitant to give up his bottle that just happens to have a hidden compartment with "some" pungent substance in it, a substance that is still a mystery. Stay tuned.....

    Vick won't face charges
    Lab tests on bottle showed no evidence of drugs
    Posted: Monday January 22, 2007 11:05AM; Updated: Monday January 22, 2007 12:48PM

    MIAMI (AP) -- No criminal charges will be filed against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick over a suspicious bottle he attempted to bring through security at Miami International Airport, state prosecutors said Monday.

    Lab tests done on the bottle, which contained a hidden compartment that police suspected may have contained marijuana, found no evidence of drugs, according to a memo by Deisy Rodriguez, an assistant state attorney.

    "Based on the lab's findings, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office is not filing criminal charges," Rodriguez said in the memo, adding that the bottle is no longer considered evidence in an investigation.

    Vick, 26, was forced to surrender the bottle when he attempted to take it through airport security last Wednesday. He was not arrested and went on to board an AirTran flight to Atlanta.

    A police report said the bottle appeared from the outside to contain water but had a compartment behind the label. That compartment contained "a small amount of dark particulate" and an odor consistent with marijuana, the report said. Monday's memo did not say what the material was.

    Police had also said last week the lab analysis could take several weeks. The decision not to prosecute followed a weekend report by ESPN based on anonymous sources that Vick was not carrying marijuana or any other illegal substance when he was stopped.

    Possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor under Florida law punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. First offenders rarely do jail time.

    Well then what was this mystery pungent, marijuana-like substance?

    He may not have had drugs hidden in there at the time, but I'm not sure why else you'd have a bottle like that and be hesitant to give it up at the airport if that's not the purpose.

    Re: Michael Vick At It Again

    The results of the test were "inconclusive" and indecisive. According to reports in atlanta, its the spin doctors saying it wasnt weed. Bottom line is that they couldnt tell what it was.

    Nick, showing that in addition to being an expert on the draft is also a contributing editor of High Times Magazine, is dead on correct. Why would he hesitate to throw it away if it wasnt for the purpose of carrying his stash.

    Even vick, he of the fantastic athletic ability and equally limited brain function, wouldnt be stupid enough to try and board a plane these days while actually carrying weed. He would have had someone do it for him. My bet is that he was going to use the bottle to carry around his stash once he got where he was going.

    Very nice, and very true; the Fcons will NEVER win a championship with Ron.

    He already smoked it in the men's room.

    Atlanta will be charged a timeout!
