Default Michael Vick ordered by Goodell to not attend Camp

I saw it on PFT and they sourced Fox 5 News in Atlanta:

UPDATE

That's pretty big news.

I would assume this will be a paid leave of absence......smart move for him; he can focus on his trial and in addition the Falcons can create chemistry with the QBs that will be there everyday of the week

I don't think Vick had a whole lot of choice here. He wanted to play football, and who knows, that may have helped. If he had played well while in court, it would have at least impressed some fans.

This is definitely the right move for Atlanta and the NFL though. The distraction would have been massive.

If he leaves, does that mean the end of Vick in ATL?

I'm willing to bet that he's already played his last down in his NFL Career. What he's doing is best for the game. I'm happy to see that he has the respect to do this. Props to him for that.

ATL should go after Culpepper... if he's still out there...

So...

Long, McFadden, Brohm, Baker, or Woodson? It looks like we will have 3 top 40 picks.

I definitely agree, on both counts.

I agree that he has probably played his last down. As far as bringing in Culpepper, I don't know how much that'll help them. I say they start D.J. and see if he can transform into a solid starter and if not they use their Top 10 pick on a QB.

I think in terms of his case, its not wise of him to leave the Falcons. Because let's face it, as long as he's in the NFL and playing for a team, he'll have more leverage and sympathy and makes it easier for him to get a lighter sentence.

Out of sight, out of mind. If he leaves, he loses that leverage of being this valuable NFL star who's presence is required in the sport. I think its not a wise move by him if he does this.

how about we all just wait and let a credible source cite this story...because I don't believe for a minute that he's going to get paid to sit and go to trial...why would arthur blank fund Mike Vick's lawyer fees and what not? He's not going to put his reputation on the line for a man that everyone has already convicted...

Good news for the Atlanta Falcons, they didn't need that abhorrent media circus drowning their training camp.

I'm still very bummed that the media won't be hounding the Patriots for the purpose of seeing the Randy Moss experiment (which I don't think will be as successful as others do).

IMO he's done in the NFL period. There's an article out there from a former prosecutor's perspective on the case and he feels that the case will be more about gambling then it will be dogfighting and if Vick was gambling and convicted on it Goodell will have to ban him.

Wowzers. Chris Houston better turn into a shutdown corner now. Because they ultimately gave up Schaub for him. If Schaub plays well in Houston, Atlanta's GM will never hear the end of it.

Hindsight is a hilarious thing. At the time Rich McKay fleeced the Texans, by getting a mid-1st round value for a backup QB, who for one game lit up a lousy pass defense. If Schaub is great, the Falcons will be the ones who got "fleeced." Even if Justin Blalock and whomever they take in the 2nd round next year turn out to be great.

I think it will turn out to be a win win situation. I liked Chris Houston alot coming out, and if he can keep his head on straight, I think he'll be a good corner opposite of Hall. Especially in Zimmer's man coverage scheme. I think the Falcons have to roll the dice on Cullpepper now. He'll be available for cheap, and if Petrino can do for him what he planned on doing for Vick, then the season may become salvageable.

The Chris Houston pick was our 2nd round pick. The one from the Texans turned into Justin Blalock.

Blalock will be a stud. I think they got a 2nd round steal out of him. Works even better for Atlanta then.

Vick has hired a lawyer. Billy Martin is his name. I don't know much about him, but apparently he represented Monica Lewinsky during the Bill Clinton scandal. He's well connected in Washington and has a sterling reputation. Anybody know more?

He represented a long list of NBA goons from what Ive heard. Vick has plenty of money, you know he hired the best money can buy.

He's represented Jayson Williams (NBA), Bill Campbell (Atlanta Mayor), Monica and Lewinsky (White House Intern) among others. Very successful and proven trial lawyer from what I've read. Should be interesting to see who else he adds to the team.

I honestly believe that's a BIG IF... on Schaub becoming a great QB. IMO, he's very overrated. I thought he was overrated on the Falcons, when all their fan's thought he was amazing... and I still think he's overrated. He'll be LUCKY if he turns out to be any better than Steve Beuerlein did outside of Dallas.

Here is the latest from NFL Insider Jay Glazer:

The first of what could be a handful of actions taken against Michael Vick by the commissioner's office has been decided.

FOXSports.com has learned that commissioner Roger Goodell has ordered Vick not to attend Falcons training camp as his first step in determining Vick's future in the league. That would give the league office more time to assess the facts and judge additional facts that may come to light in the next month.

This is just the first part of what could be an extensive punishment for Vick's alleged involvement in a gruesome dogfighting operation at a property owned by him in Virginia.

There could also be a strong push to sit Vick down for the year while he clears up his personal problems. In fact, this action could even convince Vick to take a year-long leave of absence, which would certainly be the simplest resolution for all parties.

Vick is already facing federal charges for the dogfighting fiasco that has turned the Falcons upside down and could face state charges related to the operation.

Calls to the league office for comment have not yet been returned.

He'll be LUCKY if he turns out to be any better than Steve Beuerlein did outside of Dallas.
Beuerlein had a couple of good years in Carolina..............

So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
