    Vick Lobbies for Trade to Rams...

    Unsatisfied with trade offers for third-string quarterback Michael Vick, the Eagles paid out his $1.5 million roster bonus Tuesday.

    Vick, meanwhile, wants to start in 2010 and went on a St. Louis radio station Tuesday to proclaim his desire to be traded to the Rams.

    "I'm not saying it out of arrogance but out of confidence," Vick told WXOS-FM. "I think I can be the difference-maker on any team, especially a team like the St. Louis Rams, who need a lot of help and will get it based on their ownership and the general manager (Billy Devaney) they have who is a great guy and I know from Atlanta.

    "I just think bringing the right pieces in, putting the right players in the proper positions and giving them the opportunity to win, I think premier players could turn any team around. Yeah, I'm confident I could do that. ...

    "Me and Billy have a relationship that dates back to 2001-2002 and we were very close in Atlanta. We always talked, he always came and sat by me by my locker and he'd ask me what my thoughts were on certain things and we just always had open dialogue.

    "I think the world of him, he's a great guy and he's been there for me throughout the last three years just communicating."

    If Vick were to be a starting quarterback in 2010, according to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, he easily could reach $2.75 million in incentives on top of his $3.75 million base salary.

    Last week Vick said in a radio interview that he'd like to play for the Panthers, because they're close to his Virginia home and he'd get to face the Falcons twice a year. (He also likes their uniforms.)

    A fourth and six? No. Way to much for him.

    The Eagles have to get realistic and realize what they can get for Vick, I mean look at all the recent trades, Boldin, Cromartie, Rhodes. None of those guys, who are recent probowlers, were had for a 2nd round pick. I think a fourth or a fifth would be right in line for Vick. Heck lets just give them their fifth and AJ Feely back and call it a deal.

    i mean we already have their fifth, i think a 4th and a 6th is probably his worth for a starting qb, and they chip in some cash considerations for the extra incentives he'd make for being a starter.

    He is most certainly not worth a 4th round pick. He has done nothing to show that he is worth a 4th which is a pick that can be use to acquire a fairly useful player in the draft. I personally wouldnt give anything more then a 7th for him. He is a third strong QB and should be valued as such.

    Re: Vick Lobbies for Trade to Rams...

    hey man where'd you get that article?

    also i think a 5th rounder would be the appropriate value for a trade. (the 5th we acquired from them).

    Could you explain why a 5th round pick is a good trade for a 3rd string QB?

    Re: Vick Lobbies for Trade to Rams...

    In the last years in the 4th round we have selected:

    Dorell Scott, Justin King, Keenan Burton, and VA

    I would trade any of those guys heads up for vick.
    While the 4th round has been better than the 3rd round over the last couple of years even, vick would be brought in as the starter with null and aj and the backups
    Then we would draft suh,

    A 4th or 5th round pick coupled with prob a 6th or 7th would not be a bad deal at all for a major fan attraction and a starting qb.

    Vicks last season (while a while ago) he was top ten in tds, td/int ratio, and total yards. He only even played with 1 semi playmaker and never had a D above 14th overall yet got the team into the playoffs even the nfc champ game and remember the game against us????

    Id give a 4th or 5th for that type of hype around the team and a starting qb over justin king or dorrell scott anyday.

    If trading for Vick means we don't draft Bradford and pick Suh then I'm all for it, and I dont care much for Vick. I just dont want to see us waste our first round pick on Bradford.
    Just Fix It

    The guy wants to play for Carolina, now for St. Louis. So indecisive. What will he do on the filed? "I'll pass...no, run...no, pass....wait, I'll run...SMACK!"

    No, thanks. One more reason to not let him wear horns.

    You have to remember that the Rams have the first pick of every round. That means that their fourth round pick is likely (depending on compensatory picks in Round 3) going to be the 97th selection overall.

    In my mind, there is no way the Rams should give up a top 100 pick for Vick.

    5th round pick for Vick wouldn't be a bad deal. Then on Draft in first 3 rounds picking-up DT, LB and OL.
