Meeting Between Vick, Goodell Might Be Scheduled Before League's Disciplinary Decision
Michael Vick's representatives plan to try to arrange a meeting between the Atlanta Falcons quarterback and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell before Goodell decides what discipline the league will impose on Vick, sources familiar with Vick's case said today.
NFL officials said that Goodell had not decided what punishment to impose on Vick, whose lawyers announced Monday that he'd agreed to plead guilty to the federal dogfighting charges against him. The proposed plea agreement, if it is accepted by the judge in the case, would put Vick in violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, which empowers Goodell to fine, suspend or impose a lifetime ban on an offending player.
Goodell said last month, just after ordering Vick not to report to training camp with the Falcons pending the outcome of a review of the case by the league, that he was open to the possibility of a face-to-face meeting with Vick.
