Michael Vick reinstated

Michael Vick is back. Sort of.

ESPN and numerous other news outlets are reporting that former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has been reinstated by NFL Czar commissioner Roger Goodell. There are numerous limitations Lardarius Webb Jersey to Vick's reinstatement, though. Vick can participate in team workouts and practices. He is only eligible, however, to play in the final two games of the preseason and will not be allowed to play in any NFL regular season games until (at least) the sixth week of the 2009 NFL regular season. Goodell reserves the right to keep Vick off of the playing field past the sixth week of the 2009 NFL regular season and the matter will be reviewed after the NFL season begins.

Roger Goodell wrote a letter to Michael Vick, informing the player of his reinstatement. ESPN quotes Goodell in the letter as telling Vick the following: to say, your margin for error is http://www.ravensnflofficialproshop.com/Nike-Matt-Elam-Jersey.html extremely limited. I urge you to take full Torrey Smith Authentic Jersey advantage of the resources available to support you and to dedicate yourself to rebuilding your life and your career. If you do this, the NFL will support you. I accept that you are sincere when you say that you want to, and will, turn your life around, and that you intend to be a positive role model for others. I am prepared to offer you that opportunity. Whether you succeed is entirely in your hands. Vick responded to his reinstatement by the NFL commissioner through his agent, Joel Segal. In this statement, Vick said would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to commissioner Goodell for allowing me to be readmitted to the National Football League. I fully understand that playing football in the NFL is a privilege, not a right, and I am truly thankful for the opportunity I have been given. As you can imagine, the last two years have given me time to re evaluate my life, mature as Lardarius Webb Womens Jersey an individual Torrey Smith Youth Jersey and fully understand the terrible mistakes I have made in the past and what type of life I must lead moving forward. Again, I want to thank the commissioner for the chance to return to the game I love and the opportunity to become an example of positive change. Vick has been a ravensnflofficialproshop.com/Nike-Elvis-Dumervil-Jersey.html hot topic among NFL fans around the country over the past few works (just look at the comments sections in the Michael Vick pieces listed here). Regardless of what any NFL fan feels on the subject, the fact is Michael Vick is being given a second chance. Now, we will have to wait and see which NFL team will sign him.

And yes, I do believe Vick will be picked up by a team in need of help on offense (Cleveland Browns, anyone?). For what it's worth, though, both the New York Giants and New York Jets have made it very clear that neither team is interested in Michael Vick.
