I'm sure Mr. Blank would let him out of his contract. Unless he plans on keeping him. He's a business man and if Matt Ryan doesn't pan out I could see Vick going back to Atlanta if his skills are still there. But isn't Vick facing state charges too? I'm not sure how that works out but I'd assume he can't be charged twice. Anyway I hope he finally gets his life together one day. He's got kids to take care of and they need a father.

This might answer your question.

CFHS | Michael Vick would walk in Canada

Edit: I am thinking along the lines that a Felony in the United States might not constitute a Felony in Canada.

The state charges are going after different crimes than what the federal case charged him with. The only reason the fed's got involved was because the state (maybe the city) dragged their feet and did not press any charges. There where thought that the prosicuter was trying to sheild Vick from charges. The fed's got involved and took matters into their own hands.

Wouldn't it be great if Vick joined this new league and the team that drafted him was called the "Bulldogs"? The PETA picketers would be in their glory...

What happened to the league that was suppose to play in the spring and have the college football atmosphere. The teams were suppose to play in college stadiums. I believe Florida, Tennessee, Purdue and not sure what other fields or cities they wanted to play at.

The AAFL folded before it even opened a training camp. Most of the people who "indicated interest" in buying franchises and taking a financial stake in the league never actually got around to writing any checks...

I wish him well. Everyone deserves a second chance.......even convicted felons who mistreat dogs. Geesh... look at Martha Stewart. Noone is banning her from television. He should be given the same chance to earn a decent living.

No he doesn't. He proved he can't handle the fame and fortune a few times.


Martha Stewart didn't kill living creatures and get tied up with drugs, she just did something stupid with stocks. There's no comparison.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Another lame league bites the dust. The XFL was the worst of them all though.
