Adrian Peterson wants Michael Vick on the Minnesota Vikings

Michael Vick may no longer be seen as a starter in Philadelphia, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be the top-signal caller somewhere else.

Vick turns 34 this year, and he hasn’t played in more than 13 games in a season since 2006, but he has ample athleticism and NFL experience, and he could still be serviceable in the right situation.

The Minnesota Vikings are searching for a quarterback to pair with their all-pro running back and push the team back into the playoffs. Could Vick fit with the Vikings?

One player that certainly thinks so, is that all-pro running back, Adrian Peterson.

“Michael Vick would intently [sic] make the Vikings a playoff team!” Peterson tweeted on Wednesday.

After being paired with Tarvaris Jackson, Brett Favre, Josh Freeman, and Ponder, among others, Peterson is thirsty for someone he feels can help the team contend.

While Vick as a Viking is far from a done deal, such a move might make sense for both sides.

Christian Ponder is the only Viking quarterback currently under contract, and the free agent quarterback class, which consists of Josh McCown and David Garrard, among others, isn’t all that appealing.

Since Vick is not slated to start for the Eagles this season, he may want to explore his options elsewhere while he still has some sort of opportunity, and the Vikings could be a viable destination for the former Pro-Bowl quarter.
