â†µâ‡¥AF.COM: What caused you to decide to relinquish Vick’s rights today? â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥THOMAS DIMITROFF: "We spent a significant amount of time this off-season trying to trade him to another NFL club, and we had some conversations with a few teams, but nothing materialized. At this point, we feel releasing Michael is best for him and best for us. Our entire organization sincerely hopes that Michael will continue to focus his efforts on making positive changes in his life, and we wish him well in that regard." â†µ
â†µKudos to the interviewer from AtlantaFalcons.com for omitting the part of the interview where Dimitroff looked at him slack-jawed for asking "What caused you to decide to relinquish Vick's rights today?" I can only assume that was followed by "Are you #$(*ing kidding me? Dogfighting! It was the dogfighting! Also, we prefer Matt Ryan's pocket-passing style to Vick's on-the-move game." â†µ
â†µVick becomes a free agent, and I'm sure teams are just lining up to sign him. Provided, of course, he's ever allowed to set foot on a field again. There's always the UFL! â†µâ†µ
