All is right with the world! Former Falcon’s quarterback Michael Vick has been reinstated back into the NFL. Finally. With conditions. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement yesterday via a press conference. Goodell?s conditional reinstatement permits Vick to latch on immediately with any team that will have him, with full membership and participation. Vick can even play in the final two preseason games. This is major being that there are still those who hate on the embattled quarterback. He’s been given another chance and I’m oh so happy right now!
Vick is suspended for the beginning of the regular season, but can show up at headquarters and do all the heavy lifting required to fit in and come back. Goodell said he’ll make a decision regarding FULL reinstatement no later than Continue Reading…
Former Falcons QB Michael Vick, who has been under house arrest since his release from federal prison has left his job with a Virginia construction company to work with youngsters at Boys & Girls Clubs. Vick will now be working with children on health and fitness activities at several clubs in the Hampton Roads area. The embattled quarterback was a regular at the Boys & Girls Club in Newport News as a youngster and officials feel that he can have an impact on wayward youths:
After spending 19 months in federal prison for his conviction for financing a dogfighting operation, former Atlanta Falcon’s quarterback Mike Vick is adjusting comfortably to home confinement.? Since he still has a ton of haters, I’m sure they’re all fuming at the pics and video of him chillin at the crib released by RadarOnline. But whatEV!? I’m quite pleased to see him finally out and spending time with his family. It’s way overdue!
Vick will spend the next two months being monitored at his five-bedroom Virginia home and working a $10-an-hour job as a construction laborer. He?s scheduled to be released from federal custody on July 20, and then faces three years of supervised probation. The photos (above) portray him visiting with children from the Vick Foundation, a nonprofit formed for at-risk youth, while the video shows Vick speaking about his days in prison as he? interacts with his two daughters. Vick?s fiancee, Kijafa Frink, can also be heard behind the camera:
House arrest isn?t exactly torture for former NFL star Michael Vick. Sure, he’s sporting an electronic-monitoring device on his ankle, but he’s serving out his 60-day sentence in style at his posh 5-bedroom brick home on his sprawling estate in Hampton, Virginia and gets to see his fianc?e and their two daughters.

Four cars pulled up to Vick?s five-bedroom brick home at the end of a cul-de-sac at about 8:25 a.m Thursday. The caravan was led by a black Kia Sedona with curtains shielding the back seat from view and sunshields on the front side windows. Vick was in the Sedona along with his fiancee, Kijafa Frink, said Chris Garrett, a member of Vick?s support and legal team.
He was also greeted by his 19 month old daughter (London) who was born just weeks prior to the start of his sentence.
Mike was fitted with an electronic monitoring device, which he’ll wear for the two months he spends under home confinement. He and law officials walked outside on his back deck briefly to make sure the device was working properly. Mike will spend the next two months being monitored at home but has been permitted to work outside the home as a construction laborer wtih WM Jordon Construction in Virginia. He will be a $10 hourly employee for at least the next two months. The job is part of his probation, but of course his ultimate goal is to return to the NFL. Hopefully he’ll be given the opportunity, since he has paid for his crime.? (Source 1 and 2)
He’s BATTERED but not BROKEN! Mike Vick has closed a deal for his own reality show:
Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has clinched a $600,000 deal to headline his own unscripted documentary series chronicling his life, once he’s out of the federal pen where he’s currently serving a 23-month sentence for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy.
Cameras will start rolling after he’s sprung on July 20 and will follow him as he seeks to “make amends for his past,” including starting work at a $10-an-hour construction job as he applies for reinstatement in the NFL. (Source)
I can’t wait for Mike to make a comeback. I’m soooo rooting for his success. Y’all can call it racist, stupid, whatever you want, but nothing can change my mind. His punishment definitely did NOT fit the crime and I for one am still on his side…
