Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson said on Tuesday that the team will not rule out the scandal-tainted quarterback Michael Vick. But since Thompson is notoriously coy about the team's plans, it is still hard to judge from his comments whether the team have a sincere and significant level of interest in giving Vick chance of wearing packers jersey.
"What is the answer that we give to questions like this? We're always looking to improve our team," Thompson said. "We look at all options at all times. I wouldn't care to speculate in terms of the odds or the percentages (of signing Vick) or anything like that."
Thompson admitted that Vick is in unique situation but the team will just evaluate him in the same routine of evaluting other players. No matter whether the Packers are really interested in Vick, they are the first team showing such stance in public after Vick was conditionally reinstated to the NFL.
