Then he will have to sign for a team near the league minimum with incentives
I just remembered that he also has the option of waiving his signing bonus money in exchange for his release a la Lavar Arrington. That might be what ultimately works out the best for both parties involved.

If he has that option that's definitely the way to go.

Supposedly the 49ers have stated they have not ruled out Vick.

Vick is only 6 months older than Eli Manning. He's only 2 years older than Big Ben.

Im not buying the age or the time away from the game argument because neither are truly valid if Vick is in shape.
First of all, Redman had shoulder surgery, then returned to football by 2005, shuffling around rosters. Collins never left football, and Maddox had 2 full seasons to get back into football shape.

Also, all I've learned from this post is that ****** QBs can continue to be awful.

Chris Redman did not play football in 2005 or 2006. He was signed and quickly waived twice in 2005.

And he put up 10 TDs to 5 INTs in 2007. That's not even close to awful. What was awful was the Falcons rushing attack and defense which is why they didn't win that year.
