    Shouldn't they have wrapped up Desean Jackson first?

    When you put it that way, the guy has lived two American dreams. Most Americans are lucky to get 15 minutes of fame, much less one American dream...

    Congrats to him.

    I'm in the same vein. I think Vick was great last year. His comeback was awesome, but 100 mil with 40 mil guaranteed? Doesn't that seem like an awful lot of dough to wrap up in a 30+ year old QB who has only played a full season once in his career, plays a style that sees him taking lots of hits, and who has had exactly one good year since returning to the league?

    Maybe he'll knock it out of the park. He certainly did last year. Just seems like a pretty big risk.

    He probably will have a lousy year trying to figure out how to spend it.

    Don't you be worrying about what happens in the preseason. If you are going to have a bad one, best it be when noting matters.

    Dogkiller is in his prime. Well worth the risk.
