NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, teams, fans and sponsors are among those who will weigh in on Michael Vick's future.
First and foremost, Goodell must decide whether Vick's suspension will end and, if so, when -- allowing the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback a chance to play in the league again. Goodell is expected to act fairly quickly, so Vick and teams know his status for the coming season. Training camps for veterans start opening next weekend.
There has been communication between Vick's camp and the league about the process, although neither side is making substantive comments publicly about where things stand.
