11:35 AM ET 12.09 | Now that coach Andy Reid has carried out the carefully planned firing of Michael Vick as Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, attention turns to where the passer may play next season. After talking to three NFL sources this week, here's a look at the likely landing spots for Vick this offseason. 1. Buffalo Bills - Though the team publicly denied being interested in Vick in 2009, a source close to the quarterback insists the Bills were a suitor. 2. Cleveland Browns - The key to this possible match is that former Eagles president Joe Banner is now running the show for the Browns. Banner is a Vick fan. 3. New York Jets - The Jets are nothing if not daring and desperate, particularly after watching Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow spend the season flopping around like fish on the deck of a boat. Vick would serve a couple of purposes. 4. Arizona Cardinals - They are always looking for a veteran fix at quarterback (see Kurt Warner and Kevin Kolb) and could acquire their second former Philadelphia passer in the span of three seasons. 5. Philadelphia - The final school of thought is that Vick ultimately won't go anywhere. More likely, it will be Reid who gets let go first and then the decision on Vick will be left to Reid's successor. If the successor is Oregon coach Chip Kelly or former Tampa Bay and Oakland coach Jon Gruden, Vick's chances of staying increase exponentially.

How many of us can name 5 teams in the CFL or the Arena league?

And if any of you wants to see him in the LFL, keep it to yourself, OK?

This is simple ... he will wind up on the team that currently doesn't have a psychopathic dog torturer/murderer on its roster, but wants to have a psychopathic dog torturer/murderer on its roster.

He should go to Denver. Fox did OK with a lefty without much talent last year and with Peyton Manning he'll never see the field.

If Vick is traded to the Jets, then they better improve their 0-line, if they don't, Vick will get seriously hurt!!!

As a Canadian citizen, i can name all 8 CFL Teams.........BC Lions, Calgary Stampeders. Edmonton Eskimos, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Toronto Argonauts, Hamilton Tiger-Cats & The Montreal Alouettes. About Vick, i can't see him playing in the "Dawg" Pound in Cleveland

Jets! Why settle for a three ring circus when you can have 4. Ryan, Sanchez, Tebow and the Dog Killer. Priceless!

Comments #3 and #13....good ones.

I like Vick going to the Jets and then waiting the entire season to play along with Tim Tebow.

December 9, 2012  07:10 PM ET

This assumes ythat he still should be starter in the NFL.

Amazing the amount of attention Vick gets even without ever winning anything of value. Sure he's a dual threat and very athletic but in all the years he's played, he hasn't built up a great resume of serious winning. And that is with a talented Eagles team and Falcons squad.
