On the recent shooting that took place at a 30th birthday party for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick Roger Goodell said:
"We're still gathering the facts. I think they've been reported fairly accurately from what I can tell and we've been told by law enforcement that he's not a focus of this at all. Obviously we've got to look to see whether there was any violation of policy in there or his conditions (for reinstatement last year after he served jail time and a suspension for his involvement in a dog-fighting ring). We're continuing to gather that."
The Eagles brass, after signing Vick last year, said there wouldn't be any third chances, so we'll see how this shakes out and if he'll still have a job in Philly. The Birds would look pretty silly if they released him at this point, especially with a talented but unproven Kevin Kolb as the starter. Vick is currently the backup/ 'Spread Eagle' specialist. Rookie Mike Kafka of Northwestern will most likely be the third string.
