Blank: Vick “will not be playing for us”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

As Michael Vick left federal prison in Kansas for home confinement in Virginia Wednesday, Falcons owner Arthur Blank reiterated that the former face of the franchise won’t play for the team again.“As Michael nears the completion of his sentence, I wish the best for him and his family,” Blank said in a statement. “It is my sincere hope that he has learned from his mistakes and will move forward in a productive and positive manner.“The Falcons maintain Michael’s contractual rights for now, but he will not be playing for us in the future. In the event NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell decides to reinstate Michael to the NFL, we feel his best opportunity to re-engage his football career would be at another club. “From a personal standpoint, I will continue to be supportive of Michael in any way that would be positive, constructive and helpful.”
