Former Falcons QB Vick Allowed to Play in 09; Suspended the First Four Games

NFL-VICK/
It looks like former Falcons QB Michael Vick will be, able to play at some point this season, but before ROger Goodell makes it official, there will be some conditions he will have to meet. ESPN reports that the QB will be conditionally reinstated into the NFL early next week, but he will be suspended for the first four games of the season, according to an ESPN report.

His conditional reinstatement means Vick will face additional punishment, likely in the form of a lengthy suspension, should he violate the league’s personal-conduct policy.

SI.com reported that Vick met with Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday afternoon at a security firm’s headquarters in Allendale, N.J. Goodell had previously stated that Vick needed to show genuine remorse before he would be allowed back into the league.

Vick will be able to sign with a team and participate in training camp and preseason games. He was released from federal custody on Monday after serving a 23-month sentence for pleading guilty to charges regarding his involvement in a dogfighting operation.
