The Michael Vick Era is, only now, officially over. The Atlanta Falcons officially released Vick, along with a semi-tailored Best Of Luck press release earlier this morning, as reported by the Miami Herald, not to be confused with my amphetamines dealer, Miami Harold:
“Michael remains suspended by the NFL. However, in the event NFL commissioner Roger Goodell decides to reinstate Michael, we feel his best opportunity to re-engage his football career would be at another club.
“Our entire organization sincerely hopes that Michael will continue to focus his efforts on making positive changes in his life, and we wish him well in that regard.”
Other NFL stuff: The Eagles apparently had five million dollars around and nothing to do with it, so they restructured Donovan McNabb’s deal and gave it to him. Instead of getting $19.2 million over the next two seasons, he’ll get $24.5m, and can still leave in 2011. Even the guys that used to run GM think that seems a bit exorbitant.
