Rewind: Seahawks still not interested in Mike Vick
Posted by Danny O'Neil
The Seahawks are not interest in adding Michael Vick, this is a recording.
One that could have been played in February at the NFL Scouting Combine when the topic of the quarterback's potential return to the NFL began to simmer around the league.
"We haven't discussed it," coach Jim Mora said after he left the podium following an interview. "We're happy with our quarterbacks."
The Seahawks still weren't interested when Mora answered questions during the team's final organized mini-camp at the beginning of June.
"I'll just say this for the record: We are very happy with the quarterbacks we have on our roster," Mora said. "We have no intentions of adding another player to our roster at this time."
He then offered another addition to make sure any speculation was ended.
"Just cut out the 'At this time,' because then people will speculate for the next three months," he said. "We have no intentions of adding a quarterback to our roster."
Well, it's a couple of weeks later, the league is conditionally reinstating Vick and already I've seen a few more references. But still, the Seahawks are not interested in signing Vick.
They won't be interested next week if Vick remains unsigned.
