REPORT: Pittsburgh Steelers Won’t Re-Sign QB Mike Vick

The Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback last season was veteran Michael Vick. His inconsistency and injury against the Arizona Cardinals made third-year quarterback Landry Jones take his spot.

According to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com Vick will not re-sign with Pittsburgh.

“It looks as though the Steelers will go to training camp with Ben Roethlisberger, Landry Jones, Bruce Gradkowski, and Dustin Vaughan as the four quarterbacks on the roster,”

This move is not surprising after Vick struggled in the few games. He is 35 years old, and showed too much inconsistency when throwing his passes.

His magical performance against the San Diego Chargers in week 5 will never be forgotten. I thank you Vick for leading the Steelers down the field to set up a go ahead touchdown from Le’Veon Bell as time expired.

Vick told the media how much he appreciates the Steelers’ organization and wants to spend one more season with the team.

“I love the Steelers organization,” said Vick. “I love Coach Tomlin. I love the players I am around. I love my teammates. It was an awesome experience this year to compete throughout the playoffs. That’s what I came here for.”

The former number one overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft has not always had the support from players and fans. When Pittsburgh signed Vick last offseason the acquisition was a heated debate due to his past with the dog fights.

Now that his return is closing, the “Steeler fans” that stopped watching games since he was added to the roster can now come back and watch Pittsburgh earn their 7th Lombardi Trophy.

    A very bad fit from the start in alot of ways . Vick never looked comfortable in the offense and the receivers never looked comfortable with him . In addition , physically , Vicks best days are behind him and it showed in his play . As Chuck Noll said many times , its time to move on with his lifes work .
