Cowboys throw fans for a loop by tweeting Michael Vick quote


It’s no secret that the Dallas Cowboys are looking for a backup quarterback. It’s also no secret that Michael Vick is open to playing one more year. Combine the two, and you have a recipe for trolling.

On Saturday, the Cowboys tweeted out a quote that Vick offered on Thursday’s Rich Eisen Show — namely, that every kid growing up dreamed of wearing the famous star on their helmet, himself apparently included.

That whipped up the fans, who wondered if this was a sign that the Cowboys, who need a backup to Tony Romo after Kellen Moore got hurt, had their sights set on Vick.

Not so, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

So basically, this is the Cowboys’ social media team having a bit of timely fun. Vick will continue hunting for a contender, while Dallas will continue hunting for a veteran backup that can come in as soon as possible.
