    Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    The U.S. Bureau of Prisons lists Vick’s projected release date as July 20, 2009.

    Vick plans to plead guilty to Virginia dogfighting charges, a step that could allow him to qualify for an early release from federal prison and into a halfway house, court papers show.

    I know he'll get plenty of looks but who knows what the time away has done to his body. I know they say he's staying in shape but there's only so much you can do. There's a big difference between in shape and in NFL playing shape. Plus, he's not getting any younger.

    Not right away, but he may eventually come back. If he does, he will go to a team that is struggling because no one else is willing to take a chance with him.

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    the raiders seem to like to bring in washed up qb's so i wouldn't be suprised to see him in o-town ... yes i did just rip on my team but its more of the fact that ive faced the reality that we'll always be mediocre and that al davis is the devil ...

    Doesn't he have to serve 3 years of "supervised release"? This is the federal system's replacement for probation, although it is pretty much the same thing. It can be pretty strict, depending on the probation officer. His case was pretty high-profile, so whoever it is will be on some pressure to be strict with him, which means no traveling out-of-state, etc.

    I think it is entirely possible that Vick tries to play again. But it is almost assured that the idiot will do something stupid again to screw it up.

    I call it the Pac-Man syndrome.

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    He was not a good QB before he sat out for 2-3 years, I don't imagine he was filming "The Real Longest Yard" documentary while locked up. So I am guessing he didn't get any better, so any team to sign him would just be trying to see if he can boost the publicity and see if America will like the guy again.

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    I am willing to bet all of my credits he's on an NFL roster down the road. Some team will roll the dice and give him a chance...hell, the Lions will still need a QB at that point

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    I could see him going to the CFL a la Ricky Williams, and making a comeback to the NFL.

    Fearless prediction: watch Michael Vick starting for the Toronto Argonauts in 2010!


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    Ricky Williams got back in so Vick can too.

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    He'll be back.

    I'm just glad my Falcons won't be desperate for a starting QB when he gets out...

    Re: Does Michael Vick return to the NFL?

    The NFL still has to reinstate him. I guess he could go to the Cowboys since they seem to be in the business of housing screwups. If Pacman Jones can find a home so can Vick I guess...

    I think he's going to have a tough comeback because he'll be a PR nightmare for whoever gives him a chance.
