Kraft indicates Vick Not In Patriots' Plans

Posted: Updated:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Patriots owner Robert Kraft suggests that New England has little interest in signing Michael Vick.

Kraft says the team doesn't need the former Atlanta Falcons star because the Patriots already have the best quarterback in Tom Brady.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick praised Vicks' ability last week when he was conditionally reinstated by the NFL after serving 18 months in prison for running a dogfighting ring.

Kraft spoke about Vick during a Sirius NFL Radio show broadcast from Gillette Stadium on Saturday. His comments were reported in Sunday's Boston Globe. The Patriots on Sunday confirmed the essence of Kraft's remarks. A transcript of the show was not available.
