No. No. No. The Cowboys are not signing Michael Vick.
That being said, the Cowboys social media team posted a very interesting ".gif" on Saturday morning. They quoted free agent veteran quarterback Michael Vick. The quote read, "Every kid growing up you know wants to put that star on their helmet."
Vick made that comment on The Rich Eisen Show. The Cowboys are searching for a veteran quarterback to backup Tony Romo after Kellen Moore broke his leg. Vick didn't generate much interest on the free agent market but it appears he's lobbying for a job with the Cowboys.
People I spoke with say that the team has no interest in signing Vick. They don't see him being a fit and the Cowboys truly want to get a longer look at 4th round rookie Dak Prescott who is currently the No. 2 quarterback in camp.
Ultimately, I think this is the Cowboys social media team having a little fun and trying to generate website clicks. This innovative and very large staff is the best in the NFL.
Stranger things have happened, and I suppose anything is possible. However, the odds of Vick ever wearing a star on his helmet are very, very slim.
