Vick_leagueTony Dungy looks like he's going all Emperor Palpatine in this photo. Dance, puppet. Dance.

Annnnd bomb defused:

His [Vick] decision on where to play to put himself in the best position to succeed was entirely his own. Commissioner Goodell obviously met and spoke to Michael and his reps as part of his decision on whether to reinstate him and on what terms. But the commissioner would never steer players to or away from particular teams and did not do so in this case.


That's NFL PR man Greg Aiello on Twitter responding to Michael Vick's insinuation that Roger Goodell steered him toward Philly. I'm not entirely sure I believe that, but I think we can put this story to bed now. Michael Vick's an Eagle. He's happy here, not choking dogs, and has a high QB rating. Moving on…

UPDATE: Oh fuck- statements! Vick via Adam Shefter:

"Commissioner never told me to sign or not sign with particular teams. I want to make it clear this was a decision I made."


Yeah, someone wrote that for him.

Vick is kind of like the Bleacher Report of NFL players. You just assume everything he says will later be recanted in a forced, PRitiy (word?) statement. Now if they can just add slideshows to the Michael Vick Experience…
