QB Michael Vick reinstated by NFL on conditional basis

Thanks to Dre for getting a FanShot up, but I thought this was probably deserving of its own front page post for now.  The NFL has officially reinstated former Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick.  According to the link at

Vick can immediately participate in preseason practices, workouts and meetings and can play in the final two preseason games . . .

Once the season begins, Vick may participate in all team activities except games, and Goodell said he would consider Vick for full reinstatement by Week 6 (Oct. 18-19).

That's certainly an interesting twist on the reinstatement.  I wonder why he's only allowed to participate in the final two preseason games?

While the 49ers have said they will not sign Michael Vick, I know there are folks around here who want the 49ers to sign him.  I'm not one of those people, but I won't begrudge them the space to discuss it.  I do have to say I am definitely curious where he ends up.  The Giants, Jets and Cowboys have all supposedly said they have no interest in signing Vick.  Do we begin the countdown to his signing by the Raiders?

So again, whether you're for signing Vick, against signing him, or whatever, here's your forum (thus no need for FanPosts on the topic).
