Falcons To Try To Get Bonuses Back From Vick

The Falcons will try to recoup $22-million in bonuses paid to quarterback Michael Vick.  Four team officials, including president and general manager Rich McKay, are headed for the University of Pennsylvania Law School for today’s arbitration hearing.  The Falcons will say they are due the money back on the grounds that Vick violated his contract by participating in illegal dogfighting during the term of the contract.  Vick signed a 10-year, $130-million extension after the 2004 season.  Vick will be represented at today’s hearing by council provided by the NFL Players Association.  Vick pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges in August of this year.
