One name brought up recently by ESPN analyst Phil Savage was Michael Vick.
Vick, 36, played in five games with the Pittsburgh Steelers last year. He completed 60.6 percent of his passes but averaged just 5.62 yards per attempt. Vick threw two touchdowns and was intercepted once. He also ran 20 times for 99 yards.
