MARCUS VICK TO CFL?

This guy should be signed to a blockbuster deal by CFL standards. His game if perfect for the league and could draw huge U.S. interest.

Toronto would be the perfect City for him.

thanks for making up rumors with NO substance

If your gonna put somthing like this put the link to where you found it.

He won't play in the CFL, he'll be in the NFL without a doubt in my mind. Vince YOung would be perfect for the CFL too but he is definitely not playing here.

The kid is trouble, why sign another "project".

I just read that Vince Young was on the Riders negotiation list, but they had to remove him solely because the rose bowl game made him such a big NFL prospect. Damn he would have looked good in green and white

Well his stock just went down we he performed that classless act...
But he hasn't dropped to the CFL level...

Hokies cut Vick loose
Unsportsmanlike conduct at Gator Bowl was last straw

By HANK KURZ JR.

RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was dismissed from the team Friday, the result of legal transgressions and his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Gator Bowl.

University president Charles Steger announced the dismissal on the day coach Frank Beamer met with Vick and his mother in their Hampton Roads, Va., home, the school said in a statement. Beamer informed them of the decision during the meeting.

Vick, the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, was suspended from school in 2004 for legal problems. The junior came under new and intense scrutiny this week after replays showed he stomped on the left calf of Louisville defensive end Elvis Dumervil during the Jan. 2 bowl.

No penalty was called on the play and Vick claimed it was accidental. He further hurt his cause by claiming to have apologized to Dumervil, the NCAA sacks leader, but the Louisville player said no such apology was ever offered.

On Friday, it was revealed that Vick had been stopped for speeding and driving with a revoked or suspended license in Hampton on Dec. 17, Cpl. James West said. Vick's license had been taken away in August 2004 when he was cited for reckless driving and marijuana possession in New Kent County.

Steger suspended Vick from school at that time, and warned that additional problems would end his time as a member of the Hokies' football team.

"The university provided one last opportunity for Vick to become a citizen of the university and readmitted him in January 2005, with the proviso that any future problems would result in automatic dismissal from the team," Steger said Friday.

Beamer said in a statement that he was disappointed with the outcome. "We wanted what's best for this football team and Marcus," he said. "I certainly wish him the best."

School officials said in a statement that there would be no further comment until a news conference today. Beamer, Steger and athletic director Jim Weaver, who said the stomping embarrassed the university, were all expected to attend.

A telephone message left on Vick's cell phone was not immediately returned Friday, and his mother, Brenda Boddie, has an unlisted phone number.

Vick said before the Hokies' 35-24 victory in the Gator Bowl that he planned to return for his senior season. Now, his choices are to declare for the NFL draft by the Jan. 15 deadline or transfer to a Division I-AA school so he can play next season.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported on its Web site Friday that Vick would turn pro.

"It's not a big deal," Vick was quoted as saying. "I'll just move on to the next level, baby."

Vick entered this season knowing he would face hostility from opposing fans, mostly stemming from his drug arrest and another for serving alcohol to underage girls during the 2003 school year.

He said he was ready for it, but reacted to chants of "rapist" and "child molester" at West Virginia on Oct. 1 by making an obscene gesture. He met with Beamer following that incident and apologized to the team.

In the ACC championship game against Florida State, he drew an unsportsmanlike conduct flag for spiking the ball after a touchdown run.

He still won't come to the CFL,

Well he's getting pretty close, with all that Baggage..couple more drug bust..and some B and E's..he'll be close.

...could be a definite project in the CFL.....WITH TROUBLE written all over him....and the NFL disinterest.......he could consider playing up here ...but does anyone want to take the chance on him....with the bagage he carries..I believe he is still on WPG. neg. list...or was at one time... :?:

Yes Bank's would fill the roll nicely....He's looking for cash upfront, and a short contract..
It will probably take two Saskatchewan tractors, two pull him away from the Gades..

Oop's wrong topic...

.........sounds like the Raiders might be interested in him..........

...ooops....Marcus Vick is now on TO'S neg. list....lookout Damon the bad boy is on the horizon....lol lol :shock:

forget Vick! Does Montreal still want Clarett? He fits the profile of other Montreal running backs....

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- While some of Maurice Clarett's ex-teammates slept off the celebration of their latest Fiesta Bowl victory, the former Ohio State running back shuffled into a courtroom Tuesday in handcuffs and jail-issue clothing to face robbery charges.

Clarett, who was released from jail after posting bond, didn't enter a plea Tuesday.He posted bond and was released later in the day.

Clarett, who led the Buckeyes to the national championship in the same stadium almost exactly three years earlier, faced a judge for the first time since he was accused of robbing two people with a gun in an alley behind a downtown bar early Sunday.

Wearing a loose-fitting tan shirt, dark pants and sandals, Clarett did not speak and was not asked to make a plea. The 22-year-old Clarett was released from Franklin County jail early Tuesday afternoon after posting $50,000 bond, a sheriff's deputy said.

Each of the two charges of aggravated robbery carries a possible sentence of three to 10 years, with another one to three years added to each because a gun was used.

"We are looking forward to investigating the allegations," Clarett's attorney, William Settina, said outside court. "That's all I can say."

According to a police report, Clarett flashed a gun and demanded property from a man and a woman behind the Opium Lounge in downtown Columbus early Sunday morning. He fled with two men in a sport utility vehicle after he was identified by the bar owner, who happened to come out into the alley; no one was injured, and only a cell phone was taken from the alleged victims, police said.

Clarett's next hearing is set for Jan. 12.

Police had been looking for him for the better part of two days before he turned himself in shortly after Ohio State beat Notre Dame 34-20 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., on Monday night.

USA Today's national offensive player of the year as a senior at Warren G. Harding (Ohio) High School, Clarett rushed for 1,237 yards and scored 16 touchdowns as a freshman in 2002.

It was Clarett who, as a star freshman tailback, had scored the final touchdown on Jan. 3, 2003, in the same bowl to give the Buckeyes a 31-24 upset of top-ranked Miami in double-overtime. The victory gave Ohio State its first national championship since 1968.

Clarett's fortunes have changed dramatically in the three years since he scored on that five-yard run.

In the summer of 2003 he reported he had lost more than $10,000 in clothing, CDs, cash and stereo equipment when a car he had borrowed from a local dealership was broken into. Police later determined that he lied about the theft. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.

The investigation led to Ohio State suspending Clarett for misleading investigators, and for receiving special benefits worth thousands of dollars from a family friend.

Clarett dropped out of Ohio State, then challenged the NFL's requirement that players wait three years after high school before turning pro. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court before Clarett lost.

In an interview with ESPN The Magazine in November 2004, Clarett said coaches and boosters arranged for him to get passing grades, cars and thousands of dollars while at Ohio State. None of the allegations was verified, and Clarett never responded to NCAA requests to be interviewed as part of its investigation into Ohio State's athletic program.

After two years in limbo, he was taken in the third round by the Denver Broncos in last year's draft, but the team cut him in August.

Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel said the day before the Fiesta Bowl that he had recently spoken with Clarett about playing in Europe.

"As I said the last few times people have brought up the subject, my hope would be that he would have an opportunity to go over to NFL Europe and make a comeback," Tressel said Sunday.

Before the incident, Clarett was negotiating a deal with an NFL team, Josh Luchs, one of Clarett's agents, told ESPN The Magazine's Tom Friend. Clarett was expected to be allocated to NFL Europe if he signed, Friend reported.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Why does that not surprise me???

Sounds like Vick and Clarett would make a perfect fit for the Riders! Trouble with the law, bad attitude. Sounds like a few players on the rider roster already!
