Young Jeezy issued a warm “Welcome Back” to former Atlanta Falcon quarterback Michael Vick recently during his stop in Virginia for the AMW tour. The two chopped it up and Mike introduced his lil cousin, who’s an aspiring artist. Vick, who’s finally free from federal custody is also in Atlanta today to speak on behalf of the Human Society. He is currently at the New Life Community Center to speak to kids about dogs, dogfighting and how to deal with potentially violent dogs, but according to the Associated Press, media wasn’t allowed in the building:
The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback entered the New Life Community Center through a back entrance Saturday for an event put on by the Humane Society of the United States.
However, several members of the community were barred from entering the building. The society also refused to allow The Associated Press to enter.
Vick is still searching for a home team and has been conditionally reinstated by the league after completing his 23-month federal sentence for running a dogfighting ring. His Atlanta visit is a step to improve his image since his release. We’re all rooting for you Mike!

It’s great to finally see Mike with a smile on his face. Hopefully everything will work out for him.
