I do not believe there is a stronger one word negative than "no," but there if there was one, I would use it.

I'm the biggest VT fan in the world, and I'd still say no. Michael needs to focus on 1 thing, QB this team to the SB.

too much potential for a major distraction

Even if...

Even if he gets himself together. A BIG if... He will be a distraction for Mike. I would not touch him for any price. I would also do anything I could to get him into the CFL so he cannot bother Mike in any meaningful way.

I agree ... Mike needs to work on being a better QB, he doesn't need his gangsta-spoiled brat little brother running around making a mess of things and then having to get Mike to clean it up.

Marcus needs to grow up, his antics have already cost him millions of dollars. He should go to NFLE or the CFL and develop his skills so that just maybe, he might one day be able to play QB for an NFL team.

I still think this is poetic justice ... after he dissed Mike at the Combine, despite his brother always having his back, even when he didn't deserve it.

The Dolphins are doing the smart thing by trying Vick at QB where IMHO he could be a phenom in the NFL. Unlike most QB-->WR converts going from college to pros, Vick has some experience at the position, and I think with his speed and athleticism he could be a better player than Randle-El because he is much stronger than Randle-El was and is.

Marcus is too much a liability to risk as a QB. But everyone is right, Marcus would be too huge a distraction for this football team. Perhaps we can give him 2-3 years to settle in the NFL or another league and then perhaps pick him up.
