IS MR. SNYDER COURTING VICK?

Washington Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder is said to be considering trading all of his team’s draft choices in 2007, 2008 and 2009 for beleaguered Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick. Vick, fresh off missing a date with the U.S. Congress on Tuesday is now in the dog house (pun intended) over the arrest of his cousin. “I traded for Jeff George,” said Snyder, “so what do you expect? Michael just needs a hug and $263 million more dollars to help insulate him from trouble. Trouble, mind you, that follows him around through no fault of his own…according to his agent and publicist."

Vick was scheduled to lobby on Capitol Hill, hoping to persuade lawmakers to increase funding for after-school programs. But he missed a connecting flight in Atlanta and failed to show for his Tuesday morning appearance. Vick’s publicist says it wasn’t his fault, but Air Tran, which has endorsement deal with Vick, said his original plane was late, but that he was booked on a second flight and no showed.

Vick's mother, Brenda Boddie, accepted an award from the Afterschool Alliance on her son's behalf. Speaking of that crazy Boddie family…


Police conducting a drug investigation raided a Virginia house owned by Vick and found some 60 dogs, some injured and emaciated. Police also found items associated with dog fighting.Vick's relative, Davon Boddie, 26, who was arrested outside a nightclub by Hampton police April 20 on charges of distribution of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute, lives in the house. (Hey, Mike, you can get your weed from your cuz and then you wont’ have to go to Florida to get it!)

Vick owns the property, but doesn't live there and wasn't present when a search warrant was executed.
