ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)—Michael Vick has a place on a minor league football team if he can get reinstated by the NFL.

The Albany Firebirds, an arenafootball2 franchise, have offered the 28-year-old quarterback a one-year contract at the league standard: $200 a week plus a $50 bonus for a win.

Vick quarterbacked the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before being convicted of bankrolling an interstate dog fighting business.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not said if he will lift Vick’s suspension after he completes a 23-month prison sentence. Vick goes from federal prison to home confinement next month.

The Firebirds’ contract offer requires that Vick donate $100,000 to a local humane society.

A call to Vick’s agent was not immediately returned.

The NFL should remove the stain Vick put on them and not reinstate him. He should make the donation anyway as a show of good faith.

Vick should never play football again IMO.
I can't believe any team would want him.

I agree with Zippy.

There is absolutely no excuse for what that creepazoid did to those poor dogs. One of the greatest animal pictures I've ever seen is two pit bulls having a tug-o-war with Vick's jersey. He should be permanently banned from professional and ameteur sports and I do mean forever!
