Vick Says He's 'Close' to Finding Team
Michael Vick told reporters as he left a bankruptcy hearing Thursday that he's "getting close" to finding a new team.
According to the Associated Press, Vick attended the hearing in Newport News, Va., and was asked afterward by reporters whether there's any progress toward him signing with a pro team.
"We're getting close," Vick said, according to the AP, without elaborating.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally reinstated Vick on Monday, a week after Vick was released from federal custody.
Under the terms of his reinstatement, Vick is permitted to sign with any interested team and participate in training camp. He is eligible to play in his team's final two preseason games, and Goodell is to rule by Week 6 of the regular season on Vick's status to play in regular season games.
No NFL team has indicated publicly that it is willing to sign Vick, who missed the last two seasons while serving his federal sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation in Virginia. The Washington Redskins are among the many teams that have said they're not interested in signing Vick at this point.
The upstart United Football League, which begins play in the fall, has been mentioned as a possibility for Vick, but he and his representatives appear intent upon him returning to the NFL.
