Vick to the Panthers for Real?

The Charlotte Observer says forget about Mike Vick:

Michael Vick is not going to be a Carolina Panther. He has not been in camp. He has not huddled with Carolina officials in secret meetings in secret rooms in secret buildings. Wofford College has no secret buildings. He has not toured the practice fields in a golf car with Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.

The rumors – VICK TO PANTHERS – persist because Carolina coach John Fox has yet to deny the possibility and because there are not enough fact-based rumors to satisfy the media as we approach mid-August. I ask Fox after practice Wednesday if he can envision any circumstances under which Vick plays for him. “You always keep all options open,” says Fox. “I can’t say that’s something we’re heavily involved in at this point.”

He adds: “It’s all a possibility.” Asked what he would do with Vick – would Vick have worn a red hands-off quarterback jersey in Wednesday’s rain or a white offensive jersey or a blue defensive jersey – Fox says, “I don’t think much about it.” About the Vick-to-Panthers rumors, which will fester until Fox’s denial is more adamant or a team other than Carolina signs him? “I don’t think much about it,” says Fox. Then he says, “I don’t think it’s high on the radar but I don’t like to eliminate anything.”
