Vick Can Play Again, on Conditional BasisJuly 27, 2009 - 7:04 PM | by: Kathleen Foster
In a press conference today, the NFL Commissioner said playing in the NFL is a privilege and it is up to Vick to get that privilege back again. So there are a few conditions to Vick’s reinstatement. He must abide by the court’s recommendations, which include not being involved in the buying or selling of a dog. But he must also follow some NFL guidelines, which include working closely with Coach Tony Dungy who has agreed to keep tabs on Vick as a mentor and advisor.
Vick was suspended indefinitely from the NFL in August 2007 when he pleaded guilty to bank rolling a dog fighting ring. He was released from prison in May.
Vick is currently a free agent eligible to negotiate directly with teams. But so far no team has publicly expressed interest in signing him.
