Kraft Speaks Out on Vick


Aug 1, 2009

With all of the Michael Vick-to-New England rumors floating around, Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently opened up on the situation involving the troubled quarterback.

Kraft appeared on the Sirius NFL radio show "Moving the Chains" on Saturday with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan. Ryan asked Kraft if signing Vick would be "an owner's call or is that a coach's call, whether you're going to put him on your roster or not?"

To which Kraft, the owner of the team since 1994, replied:

Well, I think each situation would probably be unique and I can't speak about how things work in other areas or [on] other teams. This is a complicated one. I would think that most owners would want to have some kind of input into the decision, at least, I wouldn't do it from a football end but just understanding everything. But for us, that's an academic problem because we've got the #1 player at that [QB] position in the world as far as I'm concerned and why would we ever want to do anything that would take him off the field for one play?
