Niners Don't Rule Out Vick
San Francisco 49ers Coach Mike Singletary told reporters Monday night that the team hasn't ruled out the possibility of acquiring quarterback Michael Vick.
Singletary said the possibility would be discussed with General Manager Scot McCloughan. If the 49ers retain Alex Smith, he would compete with Shaun Hill for the starting job, Singletary said.
The Atlanta Falcons have indicated that they will attempt to trade Vick, who's serving a 23-month federal prison sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation and is on indefinite suspension by the NFL.
"I'm not going to say I'm open or closed," Singletary said, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. "I'd say it has to be something Scot and I talk about and feel good about one way or the other. But we have not talked about it at this point in great detail. We're trying to focus on what we have.
"I think right now we really need to look at the two guys we have. If everything works out with Alex and he's back, we need to look at that and go as far as we can go with that. The whole Michael Vick thing, we have to sit down and talk about that. But for right now, we have enough on our plates."
