On his NFL.com blog, ESPN's Adam Schefter has speculated that the San Francisco 49ers might be looking at bringing in former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.
Schefter notes that the team will interview Dan Reeves for its vacant offensive coordinator position, and Reeves was the coach of the Falcons when the team traded for a No. 1 overall draft selection to take Vick in 2001.
Two other coaches the 49ers have pursued for the vacant offensive coordinator position - Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson and former Falcons wide receivers coach Mike Johnson - also have ties to Vick.
The team has also signed Jimmy Williams, Vick's former teammate at Virginia Tech, who lives in Hampton, Virginia near one of Vick's homes.
In 2008, the Niners ranked No. 13 in the league with 3,379 yards through the air. Shaun Hill and J.T. O'Sullivan combined for 21 touchdowns and 19 interceptions, and were sacked 55 times. In 2006, Vick threw for 2,474 yards with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and also ran for 1,039 yards and two touchdowns.
