    It has been assumed for weeks if not months that the St. Louis Rams will be one of the top suitors for Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.

    The connection is obvious -- G.M. Billy Devaney served as assistant G.M. in Atlanta when Vick played quarterback there. (And, amazingly, Devaney hasn't ruled out further association with Vick based on that experience.)

    Then there's the reality that the Rams have no clear-cut option at quarterback. Signing Vick would allow them to take one of the top-tier defensive tackles with the first overall pick and pass on the risks inherent to taking a quarterback.

    One potential unknown in this regard is ownership. Though Shahid Khan has no control over the team yet, it would be prudent for Devaney to ensure that Khan would be OK with the notion of Vick coming to St. Louis. If Khan has concerns, Vick might not be a good fit.

    But there's no real downside, in our view. The Eagles already have absorbed the not-as-bad-as-expected P.R. hit for giving a reformed dogfighter a second chance. And it's hard to imagine many folks in St. Louis getting worked up about Vick's arrival, especially since one of the local delicacies consists of a two slices of bread stuffed with the fried contents of a calf's cranium.
