I had no idea that Vick was still taking up space on the Falcons’ salary cap. According to the ajc
“The Falcons have announced their intentions to trade his rights. If the Falcons can’t find a trade party and they release Vick once he is reinstated, they would take a $15.430 million salary cap hit in 2009. He is also due a $680,000 bonus in 2010.”
So let me get this straight. Vick goes to prison, which has to be some sort of breach of contract. At a minimum it has to be a violation of the NFL Code of Conduct. But, when all is said and done, Vick still could cost the Falcons in excess of $15 million against the 2009 salary cap?
Un’fing believable that the league would allow this to happen.
