INTERCEPTED: NFL Reinstates Michael Vick "Conditionally"


According to NFL.com & The Washington Post:

The NFL has reinstated quarterback Michael Vick on a conditional basis, the league has announced.Vick is permitted to sign with a team and participate in training camp, according to the
league.

He is eligible to play in his team's final two preseason games and will be
considered for full reinstatement by Week 6 of the regular season, according to
the announcement.According to the NFL, former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony
Dungy has agreed to work with Vick as an advisor.The announcement comes a week
after Vick was released from federal custody. The quarterback has missed the
last two NFL seasons while serving his federal sentence for his role in a
dogfighting operation in Virginia.He had been on indefinite suspension by the
NFL.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the decision after meeting with Vick on
Wednesday at a security firm in New Jersey.

Vick, 29, is a free agent after being released by the
Atlanta Falcons during the offseason.It's not clear which NFL teams, if any, are
interested in signing him."This step-by-step approach is not meant to be a
further punishment and should not be viewed as such," Goodell wrote in a letter
to Vick, according to the NFL's announcement. "Instead, it is intended to
maximize the prospect that you can successfully resume your career and your
life. I believe that a transitional approach with a strong network of support
will give you the best opportunity to manage effectively the various issues and
pressures that you will inevitably face in the coming weeks and months and earn
your full reinstatement."

The NFL season just got a little more interesting...

@Boss. Some team is gonna sign him. The league is filled with ex-felons. Mike is no different. His case was more of a big deal but he will get signed. He'll be a back up quarterback making the league minimum but he'll be back. Not every team got a great quarterback. There are at least 5 teams that needs Vick athleticism. They need to stop playing.
