Packers in holding pattern on Vick

Tulsa World - [Full Article]

Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers have done enough research on controversial quarterback Michael Vick to decide whether he would be a good fit for their team.

But researching him and signing him are two completely different marks on the level-of-interest scale and, as of right now, sources say, the Packers are in a holding pattern, intrigued by the possibility of adding a premier athlete but nowhere near the stage where they feel it necessary to pursue him.

Like a handful of NFL teams, the Packers have dug fairly deep into Vick's background — reportedly even interviewing him — following commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to conditionally reinstate him to the league on July 28. Vick, who served 23 months in a federal prison for conspiracy to run a dogfighting ring and was suspended from the NFL for two years, can participate in any team's training camp and its final two exhibition games if signed.
