Ex-NFL Star Vick Released

Is it time for a comeback? Michael Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback who was once the NFL's highest-paid player, has served his federal sentence for dogfighting and has been released from federal custody. Vick can take off the electric monitor he wore while under house confinement for the last two months of his almost two-year sentence. He served 18 months in a federal penitentiary. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he wants to talk to Vick about his career now that he's out, but it's unclear if they have planned a meeting. If Vick does make a comeback, it won't be in Atlanta, since the Falcons fired him in June.
