When asked about the former Falcons quarterback-turned-federal prisoner, Tomlin said he thinks any team with a quarterback need should be interested in adding No. 7, even if he's sure to generate protests wherever he goes.
"I understand it's going to be hard, but what I'm saying is that maybe it shouldn't be. Those without sin cast the first stone, if you know what I mean?" Tomlin said. "The reality is that this young man went to prison and paid his debt to society and if the commissioner deems him worthy of a second chance, who are we to pass judgment?"It is a little easier for Tomlin to talk about Vick, as there's no doubt that Pittsburgh will not be trying to sign or trade for him -- with Ben Roetlisberger on the roster, the Steelers feel pretty good about their quarterback. But Tomlin's vote of support is one of the first Vick has gotten from an NFL coach, even if many of his former Falcons teammates have been vocal supporters.
