According to this article just posted on the Los Angeles Times website Michael Vick will meet today with commissioner Roger Goodell to learn about the date for his reinstatement. If you believe the article Vick may be available when the Eagles come to Charlotte September 13th for the opening game of the 2009 season.
Thoughts on this? My initial reaction is that the Panthers defense has enough problems without having to game plan for the Eagles and worry about what kind of exotic "wildcat" schemes Andy Reid can come up with for Vick to run. The second is as someone who will be attending the game, fairly or unfairly on a purely selfish level I don't particularly want all the extra attention and possible protests could accompany Vick's "return" to the NFL. Would love to hear what others think on this.
