t's not so much what Mike Tomlin said but rather what the Steelers coach didn't say on the subject of Michael Vick.
Tomlin reiterated Tuesday that the Steelers are doing their "due diligence" on all free agents, and that includes the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback who served nearly two years in prison for his part in running an illegal dog-fighting ring.
In short, Tomlin didn't rule out the Steelers having interest in Vick despite being given a second chance to do so since training camp start.
"If people are capable of helping us win, we're going to have a level of interest in those guys," Tomlin said yesterday at a news conference at St. Vincent. "I'm never going to discuss free agents individually. I don't think that's appropriate. I think that that conversation could be endless. We do our due diligence on guys that have a professional skill level and of course (Vick) is one of them."
