    Michael Vick, reinstated (conditionally)

    So, apparently Michael Vick has a conditional reinstatement passed down from Commissioner Roger Goodell. This means he can be able to play as early as the first or second game or as late as the fifth or sixth game.

    He will, however, be able to participate in all off-season activities and the final two preseason games.

    Big question is, will a team sign him before then and who will be the team(s) to come forward for his services....

    Good to see Goodell reinstate Vick. What he did was pretty horrible, if you have seen the dogs and the results of the fighting you understand, but he has paid his dues, he has lost out on millions and his freedom was taken away for almost 2 years, he deserves another shot.

    I think he will be signed, he is to dynamic of a player not to be, I hear he has hired a personal trainer to get fit and it someone takes a chance on him I think he could really help a team, he is definitely not a starter put with the emergence of the 'wildcat' last year a Quaterback with the ability to rush for 1,000 is a huge advantage.

    See.. I have to totally disagree here. Our athletes need to be held accountable. It was his "Can't touch me" attitude that got him where he was. I think he should remain untouched by the NFL. Dude's a thug plain and simple.

    I remember that, especially the "Everywhere I go they love Mike Vick, they love me man" quote. I think the fact that he's lost so much, and has so much to prove will provide him with a more humble attitude, Tony Dungy is acting as his mentor so hopefully that helps as well.
