Vick expected to leave Philly this summer in free agency.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has revealed his belief that by acquiring Michael Vick, his team would without doubt become a playoff team.
The Vikings head into free agency looking to add a veteran quarterback to their roster, and with Vick seemingly surplus to requirements in Philadelphia after playing just six games last season, Peterson believes he is the ideal man for the job.
The 2012 NFL MVP has singled out the 33-year-old despite the fact that he lost the starting role to Nick Foles last season after a hamstring injury, with his health concerns continuing after failing to play more than 13 games in a season since 2006.
However, that has not put off Peterson who took to his official Twitter account to air his thoughts on who the Vikings should sign with Christian Ponder the only quarterback on the roster at this point.
“Michael Vick would intently make the Vikings a playoff team!” he wrote before the tweet was later deleted.
Nevertheless, with Matt Cassel opting out of his contract back in February and Josh Freeman set to become a free agent, Minnesota are looking to strengthen in that area in the coming weeks and months.
In what is expected to be a thin free-agent market that offers little in the way of credible options at quarterback, Josh McCown and David Garrard will arguably be the only others standing in line with Vick when decisions are made.
After playing sparingly in 2009, Vick took the starting role in 2010 and played some of the best football of his career as he led the Eagles to a playoff spot.
While he was then rewarded with a long-term contract, he has continued to be plagued by injuries and has seen his form drop in the process. However, Peterson has seen enough to suggest that he would be an important asset for the Vikings moving forward.
