Marcus Vick is no longer unemployed!!!!

Yesterday, former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was signed by the Miami Dolphins as a receiver/quarterback/returner. He was signed after spending the first six weeks of the season on their practice squad.

In order to make room for Vick, the Dolphins terminated the contract of wide receiver Cliff Russell. Russell only caught 2 passes for 14 yards in his three games with the Phins.

Miami signed Vick as an undrafted free agent and switched him to receiver after he was kicked off my Tech team in January following his junior year. Vick played receiver at Virginia Tech while he was waiting for his opportunity to quarterback the Hokies.

Vick will likely be the third string QB and he will be the 4th or 5th string widereceiver.
