Vick Might Be Back on the Field in ’09

- By Bossip Staff

This news is most likely either going to piss people off or bring a smile to their faces. Michael Vick has set himself up to possibly get out of prison before we thought:

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick could be getting out of federal prison much earlier than anticipated after applying for a prison-monitored drug rehabilitation program and evidently being moved into the program in Leavenworth, Kan. Under the program, Vick could be released after serving only 12 months of the 23-month sentence Vick was given Dec. 10 in Richmond, Va. The program could have Vick out of prison by the end of this year and perhaps back in the NFL by the 2009 season.

As it stands, Vick’s 23-month prison term could translate to a release in the summer of 2009, putting his attempts at a return to the NFL for that season in jeopardy. But if Vick were to be released in late 2008 or early 2009, his opportunity to return to the league after missing only two seasons would be boosted significantly. Members of Vick’s camp continue to hope that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will decline to tack on a lengthy suspension following Vick’s release from prison.

We won’t say that we are surprised that he might get out early.

    Thats good for him, I have nothing bad to say cause if these white socialites can get away with everything he deserves a second chance too.

  • Bella

    As long as he pays his debt and is remorseful for his actions, I don’t have a problem with thim getting another chance. I bet you he’ll never participate in dog fighting again. And hopefully he’ll surround himself with a better class of people this time.

  • cletus

    is playin football the only thing this n*gga knows how to do?

  • California Pixie

    I don’t watch football but he appears to be taking his punishment in stride and if he’s using his time to get into a program and better himself, good for him. What’s the problem? Hell, there are rapists, molesters and murderers getting and serving less time. That’s what we should be up in arms about.

    They still eat dogs in Asia, playlist. They probably don’t get what the big deal was with Vic either! They’da just been pissed at him for wasting some food….

    You can have dog on your plate 7 days a week in some places.

  • California Pixie

    Strong Black Man – I totally agree with what you’re saying. The drug program will tarnish his image even further and the powers to be in the NFL will make it difficult for him to reenter the league. Hopefully, he handled his money right (**giving money and buying a for another to start and maintain a dog fighting business doesn’t fall in that category**)

  • California Pixie

    BFQ – My neighbor across the street is Vietnamese and has said it does happen in the Asian cultures even now.

    Every once in a while a dog will be out without a leash roaming on folks lawns and he’ll say I’ll eat the MF’r and hang the paws on the owners door.

  • andie

    He should. Every other celebrity gets out early. let’s not discriminate now.

  • California Pixie

    SBM hold up this guy is in his late 20’s. Damn he looks…oh well forget it.

  • imrightdammit

    @Strong Black Man

    I’m gonna have to disagree on above comment. Micheal Irving’s cocaine use didn’t keep him out the Hall of Fame or ESPN. Quincy Carter had YEARS of drug rehab with the Cowboys before he was released, AND THEN GOT PICKED UP BY THE JETS! Brett Favre had a prescription med addiction, and look at him now. And lets not even go there with RICKY WILLIAMS. He’s failed the drug policy and been suspended 4 TIMES and Miami still took him back after 5 YEARS. So the point is that teams like talent, and if they want to will and they think he’ll help them out, then he’s in.

    ..I was typing fast, “if they want to win and they think he’ll help them out…”
