Michael Vick is a free agent this summer and he will no doubt have at least a handful of teams trying to add him to their roster.

One organization who you don't expect to be after the quarterback however is the San Francisco 49ers.

But according to SI's Monday Morning QuarterBack, the 33-year old could be headed to 'The City by the Bay' as a mentor for current starting QB Colin Kaepernick.

From the piece:

"I’ll give you a dark horse here: San Francisco. Let’s say Vick gets only lukewarm interest to start, or to compete for a starting job. If so, and if the Niners want more than a third-string insurance policy for Colin Kaepernick, Vick might be willing to go to try to win a Super Bowl ring."

Vick has mentored Nick Foles into a Pro-Bowl level quarterback at the Eagles and may be the man to give Kaepernick that boost he needs to become a SuperBowl winner after two years of coming so close.

While Vick believes he still has all physical and technical tools to be a starter in the NFL, seeing as he turns 34 in June his time as a first choice man is quickly diminishing.

So he will have to weigh up his options. Be a starter for a season - two at a push - at a team like Cleveland, Oakland or the Jaguars and be on a losing team for the rest of his career, or sign for the 49ers and get a final shot at that elusive SuperBowl ring that has evaded him all his career but be a back up.
